The Race to Build a Cybersecurity Workforce
Secureworks can’t hire cybersecurity pros fast enough.
The Atlanta-based firm that helps 4,400 companies worldwide fend off cyberattacks has about 140 openings at more than a dozen locations globally. Yet filling those positions has become a grueling—and often impossible—task. The company goes through 12 to 32 interviews just to fill a single analyst position, and the time it takes to find the right candidate continues to lengthen, says Terry McGraw, vice president of global cyberthreat analysis for Secureworks.
