Building a High-Caliber InfoSec & Data Security Team in Two Weeks

Published on

The international company, one of the largest middle-eastern rideshare apps, wanted to build an in-house data security and infosec team to protect its user data. They sought experienced and skilled talent for employment in Dubai (HQ) or other tech hubs like Pakistan, Lebanon, or Egypt.

With access to Talent500’s proprietary AI-powered fitment engine and end-to-end hiring solution, they were able to hire AI, ML, security, and DevOps professionals from top product companies, resulting in annual savings of $200,000.

  • Talent sourcing to target both active and passive talent – access to a curated talent pool of ~1 million professionals from the global talent community
