Why Choose Battleship

Battleship is reinventing finding and hiring cyber security professionals. Battleship connects companies with experienced cyber security Experts—regardless of specific industry needs, regulatory requirements, operating environments, or goals—within budget and timeline.

The average cyber security role takes 20% longer to fill than other IT jobs. In the meantime, hackers, malware, ransomware, phishing, and even regulatory compliance now affect businesses of all sizes and industries, potentially with devastating outcomes. In fact, the 2019 “The Cost of Cyber Crime” report shows that the number of security breaches faced by businesses has increased 67% over the past five years. Over the next five years, businesses stand to lose over $5.2 trillion dollars globally from cyber crime. read more

A dizzying array of consulting firms and managed security service providers (MSSPs) have cropped up claiming to fill the information security skills gap, but how do you pick? Who do you trust to meet your changing cyber security requirements? After spending hours looking for cyber security professionals, many organizations still end up with the wrong person or firm, the wrong solution, or a project that runs past deadline and over budget.

Even worse, this challenge in finding and hiring cyber security experts often leads to inaction, resulting in data breaches and non-compliance.

That’s why we created Battleship - to get you the trusted cyber security resources you need, when you need them.

Battleship is on a mission to lower the barrier to access cyber security and democratize resources. Are you ready to experience the future of cyber security work
