Jointly organized by KORNERSTONE and (ISC)2, an executive seminar, “Essential Know-How in Recruiting & Educating Information Security Professionals” was successfully held on 29 January 2010, to offer HR professionals practical tips and insightful guidelines in recruiting IT security professionals.

The speakers agreed by mere coincidence that a qualification like CISSP® is one of the important credential hiring mangers should look for when recruiting IT security professionals.

“The CISSP qualification not only shows one’s passion to the industry, it also proves their fundamental knowledge and experience in the field. But it was only a beginning. The company should provide a comprehensive plan to train up the staff. Continuous self-development is the key to success.” Said Mr. SC Leung, Founder Chairman of Professional Information Security Association (PISA).

“This seminar was an eye-opening opportunity for me to learn more about the field of information security from different perspectives. I am glad that I am now able to understand more the expectations from both IT professionals and candidates. It saves me a lot of time in matching the right candidate for my company.” said Ms. Sally Hui, Senior Human Resources executive, member of KORNERSTONE.
