According to PwC, not enough companies in the UK are taking the threat of cybercrime seriously. With over 55% of all British companies having fallen victim to economic crime in the past two years (compared to 36% of firms globally), dealing with cyber offences is now a “board-level issue.”  *

To that end Birmingham-based talent and recruitment specialists, Haig&Co have appointed Sarah Harvey, to set up their Cyber Security Practice. Sarah has more than a decade of experience in recruiting business solution and technology change professionals at all levels, across a diverse range of industry sectors.

“I’m simply thrilled to join the team at a time when Cyber Security and its inherent risks couldn’t be higher on the list of priorities for the government, the police and business. I’ve built a network of IT and business leaders across all sectors, and the aim is for Haig&Co to be the provider of exceptional talent in the Cyber Security sector.”

Sarah brings with her an in-depth knowledge and operational understanding of her customers, making her a compelling hire for HaigHQ.

Damian Navas, Director and Co-Founder of Haig&Co said, “Sarah is going to be a real asset to the business, because of the trust she’s built up over the years, and her standing in the market.”

Cyber crime threatens every business, and is no longer a purely IT-oriented problem. Cyber Security is now the responsibility of all business leaders, and Haig&Co offer proven talent and recruitment services to find those key individuals and skills to help support the Cyber strategies of all its’ customers.”
