Who is the CISO and why should your organization have one?
We support a fee schedule based on deliverables and time tables. Many would say this is not a pure retained search. And they would be right. We are more concerned with ensuring a win-win fee structure, ensuring excitement with our partnership. The first retainer is due at kick-off, establishing our working relationship.
The fee is based on the first years salary and target bonus. If substantial volume of business, then the percentage is in the 25-30% range, otherwise it is the standard 33%. Second retainer is due after 60 days and once we have provided a slate of qualified and interested candidates. The final fee is due upon a signed offer letter. There are no add-on administrative fees due at any stage of the retainer.
