Proven Cybersecurity & Risk Executive Recruiting Experts


As a top executive recruiting firm, we have a demonstrated track record of recruiting transformational cybersecurity and technology risk management executives who develop and lead enterprise-wide information security, risk management, and privacy programs for private equity-backed, founder-led, and public companies. With a deep commitment to helping clients remain at the forefront of cybersecurity best practices and innovation, we identify and engage security experts capable of leading our clients spanning a wide range of industries through dynamic, rapidly changing threat environments.

At JM Search, we bring to each search a mix of specialized industry insights, strategic understanding of organizations and cultures, and a pro-active, forward-looking perspective to finding top-flight cybersecurity and technology risk executives who will help organizations to significantly elevate their security postures. Our ability to navigate the highly competitive market for CISO talent has positioned us as a preferred retained executive search partner for companies seeking proven security executives.

Established Leaders in CISO Recruitment

With deep knowledge and complementary experience, our unique team of senior recruiters is composed of a former cybersecurity CEO, a former military special operations officer, and several deeply experienced technology search  consultants. The composition of our team gives us a unique ability to assist companies with all aspects of identifying, assessing, and recruiting game-changing security executives.

  • Complete client focus by limiting the number of searches conducted at a time by the lead recruiter
