As our dependency and reliance on technology grows, so too does the need for cyber security to minimise the risk of cyber crime.

27 Lanterns provides assessment and recommendations to organisations who are building or expanding their IT security teams and understands that these recruitment requirements can be highly specialised.

We support your business to understand why you are hiring, what type of security leader you require and what environment candidates will be entering.

27 Lanterns works collaboratively with you to find skilled people who fit seamlessly into your organisation.  While sourcing these amazing leaders,  security leadership services can be supplied in the shape of an interim Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), Head of Information Security or senior cyber security manager who can begin addressing risk immediately.

27 Lanterns implements the following five-step framework for effective hiring to ensure your organisations finds and retains the right cyber security leader


1. Clarity

Be clear on your organisation’s current cyber security landscape based on the systems, processes and activities in place, as well as establish your future challenges and requirements. Identify how these contributing factors determine who you will hire.


2. Compass

Establish direction on what role the new hire will play in your organisation. We get to the heart of your security needs and understand your business so we can find a successful candidate that not only has the essential skills, but also is right for your company culture.


3. Connection

Become connected to star candidates through creating thorough copy for job descriptions and advertisements, placing job ads, screening and assessing applicants, shortlisting candidates and conducting the interview process with your team.


4. Commitment

Once your new hire has accepted their offer, gain guidance in determining what support they will need to transition into their role smoothly.


5. Coaching

Ensure your new hire in onboarded successfully. We will brief them on the organisation’s objectives, reiterate expectations and set goals - then hand over the reins once they are on their way.
