Security Executive Council Releases Revised Book on Security Careers
December 8, 2009, Washington, DC—The Security Executive Council has released the second edition of Security Careers: Defining Jobs, Compensation and Qualifications, a guide to strong hiring practices and fair compensation for security executives. This revised version of the popular 2006 original incorporates a new, easier-to-use format, more job descriptions, more compensation data, a new section on resume building, and more.
Security professionals constantly strive to attract, hire, and fairly compensate the best security team leaders and staff. But too often, their efforts are hampered by a lack of up-to-date data, ineffective job descriptions, and inaccurate candidate qualifications. This results in slowed professional development; artificially low salaries; inconsistency; and an organizational misunderstanding of the security department.
Steve Walker of the Foushée Group, the creator of the only certified salary and compensation survey for security and compliance jobs, and Jerry Brennan, the only executive recruiter dedicated solely to security management resources, have written Security Careers 2nd Edition to provide security management with the tools they need to develop strong hiring practices.
Security professionals can use the job descriptions to supplement their hiring and staffing plans; human resource and compensation personnel can use the book to validate pay structures for standardized job descriptions and career paths; and career counselor and outplacement personnel can use it to advise candidates on viable and rewarding careers.
