Cyber Security

The specialists in addressing your cyber and technology risk requirements.

​Technology risk and cyber security exposures lead to increased fiscal, reputational and, above all, business continuity risk. Rutherford understands our clients’ need to address these risks with the right senior hires.

CISOs and their dedicated technology and cyber risk seniors must be willing to demand the requisite attention and funding to ensure that their firms are operationally secure from the ever-evolving threats they are faced with daily. As greater levels of technology proficiency and dependency are reached, Cyber Security and Technology Risk career paths are growing into ever more attractive and lucrative options in a rapidly expanding field.

Rutherford focuses on finding the best senior talent in Cyber Security for its wide range of clients within the financial and professional services sectors.
