What is Cyber Security?
In this era of digital evolution, we find everything we can imagine in the form of digital information. From a small scale e-shopping business to something critical like a state’s nuclear weaponry and defense system.
Everything has been put to the binary as a result.
With such breakthrough advancements in the digitization of information, there comes an equivalent need to protect it, for a whole infrastructure is dependent on it.
Here the term cybersecurity comes into play and the services of a cyber security recruiting firm become paramount.
Cyber Security is a well managed, proactive protection of digital data that is stored, transmitted, or processed by an organization, from external or internal adversaries. Our cyber security recruitment firm can resource the digital security talent to build resilience to attack.
‘Cyber Attack’ is a vast term, that includes illegal activities like data theft, identity theft, compromising the integrity of intellectual data, unauthorised access to highly classified information, data manipulation, and many more cyber threats.
The right information security recruitment partner can provide the talent to fill the cyber security jobs demand and mitigate the risk to ever-increasing digital assets, the attack surface is increasing for hackers.
Only a specialist cyber security recruitment agency like Next Ventures can meet the extraordinary demand for talented data security personnel. Our cyber security consultants have the knowledge and network to support your needs.
The evolution of these threats has led cybersecurity experts to introduce effective and efficient ways to ensure the security of data in systems, networks, applications, and databases with the consequential increase in cyber security jobs.
This implementation requires effective architectural changes in a network, advanced data protection policies, improved cryptographic techniques, top-notch Penetration testing operations and high-quality risk analysis of the probable threats.
However, enhancements in processes and technology do not reduce the number of successful cyber attacks.
The Cyber Security Skills Gap
The US skills gap in technology cybersecurity is a significant problem, putting businesses and organizations at risk. According to reports, there is a global shortage of 3.5 million cybersecurity workers, and the US accounts for a large portion of this gap.
There are a number of factors that have contributed to the US skills gap in cybersecurity skills. One factor is the rapid growth of the cybersecurity industry. As businesses and organizations become more reliant on technology, they are also becoming more vulnerable to cyberattacks. This has led to a surge in demand for cybersecurity professionals.
Another factor that has contributed to the skills gap is the shortage of qualified cybersecurity educators. Many universities and colleges do not offer cybersecurity programs, or their programs are not comprehensive enough to prepare students for the workforce. This means that there is a limited pipeline of qualified cybersecurity professionals entering the job market.
The US skills gap in technology cybersecurity skills has a number of negative consequences. One consequence is that businesses and organizations are struggling to find qualified cybersecurity professionals to protect their systems and data. This is leaving them vulnerable to cyberattacks.
Working with the right Cyber Security recruitment agencies ensures that you will find the right information security talent.

What our clients say
Engaging with Next Ventures, the whole recruitment process from the first contact to the introduction of candidates for an open position was smooth and very fast. I found their proactive and highly consultative approach helpful and very effective. Getting two really good candidates that fitted our job requirement perfectly, within just two weeks and to be able to secure one of them in just 5 days is unbelievable.
We are looking forward to working with Next Ventures in the very near future again and would highly recommend their service.
Kira Schirl COO, trbo GmbH
I engaged Next ventures to leverage their reach within the SAP resource pool to attract and supply both resources that had S4HANA experience or had a real drive to move into a business that was ahead of the curve and was driving the rollout of SAP S/4 to deliver business benefits across the group as part of the long term strategy. Next Ventures provided expert SAP consultants to support the finance and logistics teams across the full life-cycle of the project. I would wholeheartedly recommend their services.

Next Ventures have been supporting my business growth for more than two years when I decided to create my own structure, dedicated to CRM and MKT advisory. Because of their in depth understanding of the Salesforce ecosystem and their strong workload capacity I’ve asked their support during that particular sensible phase. They always deliver a recruitment process for Consultants in a very professional manner.
Benoist BAZZARA, President at Devoteam Customer Effectiveness
Next Ventures has worked with us on an array of consulting roles from both junior to very senior roles, more directly with me for over 2 years. Without hesitation I can say that they have continuously supplied us with an extremely high calibre of candidates that have very often resulted in great hires for the firm which are noted by Partners.
A few of the things that matter to Deloitte are; finding the correct culture fit, managing our brand as a third party and following processes well, which I can wholeheartedly say Next Ventures have done while working with us. All of their consultants are extremely professional while still maintaining a great friendly approach. As a result of the great service I personally have received, I have recommended Next Ventures to other areas of Deloitte and to others in the recruitment space.
They are keen to learn how a business works and take a genuine interest in their candidates’ future, which is a winning combination resulting in happy candidates and happy clients! Next Ventures are a pleasure to work with and I look forward to the ongoing relationship in the future.
Laura O’Callaghan, Deloitte
When I am within our organization, Next Ventures are the first I turn to. We relied on Next Ventures earlier this year to make a critical hire within our business for an ERP Manager. This role was immensely important as the person would be overseeing our whole Dynamics AX implementation. As a family owned business, we take our corporate culture very seriously, and this weighs heavily on our decision making process. Next Ventures was able to understand the unique cultural characteristics of our organization while also identifying a candidate with the technical expertise needed for our highly customized system. Although there are many recruiters and agencies out there, for us, it is imperative that we work with someone who treats our business as if it were their own, and working with Next Ventures is a no brainer.
