2013 Cybersecurity Salary Benchmarking Report

November 19, 2013, 5:12 pm


The 2013 Cybersecurity Salary Benchmarking Report is now available. The number one reason security professionals leave an organization is due to compensation. Security teams and HR professionals need salary benchmarking information to retain key staff and make offers to new team member. Based on this need we developed the 2013 Cybersecurity Salary Benchmarking Report, giving managers the information needed to:

* Compare staff compensation to industry averages
* Retain top talent
* Make competitive offers to new team members
* Increase staff budgets
* Avoid vulnerabilities that result from staffing shortages

"In past years, organizations have commissioned us to produce salary studies for their own knowledge. We are now making this comprehensive report available to all organizations through SecureWorld Insight, a partnership with Ponemon Institute and SecureWorld Expo. As the market for top quality IT security professions gets more competitive, this information becomes increasingly important to assure proper staff budgets and to avoid vulnerabilities that result from unfilled roles." - Dr. Ponemon.
The Compensation and Role of Security Teams report is now available for purchase at www.secureworldinsight.com.
