RESTON, Va., Sept. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Benchmark Executive Search, an industry-recognized executive recruitment firm, announced today a new service, Expert Network, to match their deep network of experts, advisors and consultants to companies seeking to upgrade their corporate asset protection, risk management and cyber strategies.
To address the growing need for a full spectrum of enterprise risks in corporate boardrooms and at the C-suite, Benchmark has assembled a pool of unique assets to assist industry in re-evaluating its approach to risk management and has advocated that both public and private companies be vastly more vigilant about comprehensive risk management and cyber defense.
"Benchmark believes that maintaining the integrity and security of government information systems is vital for our National Security," said Jeremy King, President of Benchmark. "But maintaining public confidence in the private sector's ability to protect intellectual property, business information, privacy, electronic financial transactions and critical infrastructure is equally vital to America's economy and ultimately our way of life. That is the reason we are offering this service."
These top experts come from the highest levels in the intelligence, defense and national security communities and are in high demand by industry. Few people possess the experience, insight, and best practices as these esteemed experts whose skills range from cyber security, physical security, insider threat, risk management, privacy, legal and compliance. They are trusted, selfless professionals of character experienced in mitigating risk, achieving outcomes and committed to national security. Their unique understanding of the complex threat landscape, methods and capabilities used to combat these threats is now what Corporate America needs.
"As I transitioned from the US military as a general officer, the ranking career intelligence officer in the US Air Force and the Chief of Staff of US Cyber Command, I had the opportunity to meet with several executive search firms." said Jim Keffer, Major General (Ret), US Air Force. "Benchmark was absolutely exceptional in their unique approach to listening to my goals, making targeted introductions to companies, other former officials and also invitations to exclusive events. I was also very impressed by their deep bench and broad network of extraordinary leaders and innovators. Benchmark's total commitment to serving both their candidates and clients was evident. Trust Benchmark to deliver--you'll be glad you did!"
