BETHESDA, Md., July 11, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- TRU Staffing Partners, an award-winning search firm representing talent and opportunities in the e-discovery and litigation support space, with a fully dedicated division, TRU Cyber, focused on the cybersecurity industry, today announces the company has partnered with the SANS Institute to bring participants from the SANS CyberTalent programs direct access to its talent agents, job postings, scholarship programs and valuable market intelligence.
"There is a critical need for information security professionals, which is why we have developed the CyberTalent unit within the SANS Institute," said Jim Michaud, director of CyberTalent Solutions, SANS Institute. "We are excited to partner with TRU and its TRU Cyber division to help participants in the SANS CyberTalent programs find employers looking for talent with their specific skills."
In 2015, TRU Staffing Partners launched TRU Cyber, a division focusing explicitly on cybersecurity staffing and career management. TRU Cyber offers traditional full-time permanent placement, as well as "surge staffing" to corporations, law firms and consultancies in need of temporary talent to augment their existing staff during times of crisis, particularly data breach response and remediation, information security project management and privacy consultation and contract creation.
"SANS is the most trusted source for vocational cybersecurity training in the United States. Their deep-rooted commitment to keeping our public and private citizens educated on the quintessential technology and knowledge bases required for defending and protecting data is the core of their culture, and their expertise and teaching staff are second to none. We look forward to meeting and getting to know the lives and careers of the SANS CyberTalent constituents and providing career counseling and placement services for them," states Jared Coseglia, CEO and founder of TRU Staffing Partners and TRU Cyber. "We developed the TRU Cyber division largely because we saw that the cybersecurity industry needed mature, quality career representation as it became a much-sought-after profession. Professionals in the cybersecurity field will have many opportunities in the coming years, and they will need someone to help them make smart, healthy career decisions. They need someone who knows what they do, the job market they specialize in, the challenges they face – particularly transitioning from federal to private employment and consulting – and much more. TRU Cyber is committed to being a valuable part of the careers for thousands of SANS fans and job seekers."
In addition to working together on the SANS CyberTalent Fairs, the companies plan to collaborate on a number of other initiatives, including thought leadership events and white papers.
