Employers are encouraged to do more, such as embracing new talent and a changing workforce, but unfortunately, 92% of hiring managers said they prioritise previous cyber security experience when candidates for jobs are chosen. In addition to looking for non-traditional hires, hiring managers must be aware that their expectations for new hires do not correspond with workers’ priorities for a successful career.
