TD Madison Recognized For Cyber Security Talent Management

TD Madison is pleased to be recognized by Hunt Scanlon for the first-ever listing of search firms dedicated to cybersecurity – a nod to the ever-expanding convergence of web, cloud, social and mobile technology that is allowing massive security breaches to become a reality of modern-day business life. Most companies lack even minimally adequate protections and this is making cybersecurity the top management challenge of our times. TD Madison, and Founder & President, Dean Madison, was one named one of 20 cybersecurity recruiting specialists that are well-positioned to identify your next best-in-class leaders to oversee this growing threat.

For 30 years, TD Madison has provided executive recruitment services and organizational leadership consulting to Fortune 500 companies and emerging growth organizations worldwide. The firm serves a diverse group of industries but its primary footprint is in the cable and telecommunications sector. Recent firm wide assignment completions include: CTO for the SCTE, VP/chief of technology for ATIS, and other executive technology leadership positions with MSOs and industry manufacturers.

Hunt Scanlon has been reporting on cybersecurity and its effects on the talent management sector now for several years. Along the way, they have been frequently asked to produce a listing of search firms and their cyber security practice leaders. After a careful review of many organizations, they concluded their research with a list of 20 leading providers of which TD Madison is now a part. Each search firm that made this year’s cut has a dedicated practice in finding best-in-class cyber security leaders; but more importantly, each firm was bench-marked on market reputation.

Hunt Scanlon has seen a dramatic increase in the hunt for seasoned cyber security talent in the last two to three years. This comes as companies have put a greater emphasis on, and given higher priority to, corporate security. But stepped-up demand is exceeding the available talent supply by a widening margin. Therein, Hunt Scanlon believes, is the opportunity – and tremendous challenge – for recruiters dedicated to the sector.

As corporate cyber attacks grow in magnitude, complexity, and frequency, executive recruiters stand on the front lines and are well-placed to leverage their networks to identify next-generation leaders in the space.
