Information and data security are now in the top two concerns of corporate boards today. But the issue is much more than an IT one — cybersecurity extends across nearly every action a firm takes, which has given rise to a sharp spike in demand for Chief Information Security Officers and Chief Risk Officers.
Heidrick & Struggles’ Cybersecurity Practice has been bringing integrated talent solutions, including executive search, leadership assessment, and culture shaping to organizations looking to leverage security as a strategic asset. Our professionals work across functions, industries, and geographies to help clients more comprehensively identify and develop exceptional leaders across the security spectrum — from cybersecurity to operational risk to physical and corporate security.
As your executive talent needs become more complex, our reach into both the business side of cybersecurity as well as the role-based requirements of security leaders ensures that we provide a broad candidate pool in every executive search.
We have confirmed more than 300 security searches since 2010, including placement of executives in senior roles in information security, corporate security, enterprise risk, and into organizations providing security services, software, and hardware.
