Finding the right privacy hire is imperative and often tough, especially these days.
The Great Resignation has subsided and the pool of potential candidates grows as we continue to read about layoffs (mostly tech firms), but the demand for privacy hiring is still present and challenging.
Many companies have one or more openings in their privacy or extended compliance/security team.
In reviewing a number of these openings, here’s some of the more common job requirements:
→ Manage potential privacy incidents/breaches
→ Extensive knowledge of U.S. privacy laws, regulations, and standards, including HIPAA, state privacy laws (e.g., comprehensive state privacy laws, state breach notification, etc)
→ Knowledge of international privacy and data security laws, including GDPR
“The demand for privacy expertise continues to accelerate, with the average privacy team growing by 12%.” – IAPP-EY Annual Privacy Governance Report (2022)
→ Collaborate with different business teams
→ Ability to juggle multiple tasks
Privacy is hiring, but it’s not enough.
According to findings from the 2022 IAPP-EY Annual Privacy Governance Report, “the demand for privacy expertise continues to accelerate, with the average privacy team growing by 12%.”
The need for the skills and experience that help organizations “navigate the most complicated of paths” is compounded by the limited availability of privacy professionals across workforce function areas.
