Security & Compliance Compensation Survey Can Help Managers Justify Employees’ Salaries—and Their Own

December 30, 2011, Washington, DC—Leading compensation research firm and Security Executive Council strategic alliance partner Foushée Group Inc. is conducting its 11th annual Security and Compliance Compensation Survey. The Council has no commercial interest in this project but strongly supports it because of the significant impact it has on the security industry.

As companies continue to look for ways to reduce expenses, senior security and compliance managers will be challenged to justify compensation levels for themselves and their employees. If they can’t, their departments will be left vulnerable to budget cuts that could damage their workforce and quality prospects for new hires. But it is difficult to justify salaries without reliable and accurate market information on compensation trends in the field.

The 11th annual Security & Compliance Compensation Survey report can help with these challenges by providing verifiable data that can be incorporated into compensation planning to help justify salary expenditures. Focused exclusively on security positions, the survey report will include more than 160 pages of text and tables detailing the compensation practices for 73 executive, management, professional and technical positions.

Each organization that participates in the 2012 survey will receive the comprehensive printed survey report for only $600. An electronic version is also available to allow in-depth analysis. Organizations that do not participate in the survey will be able to purchase the printed survey report for $1,025.

Time is running out to participate. Survey input will be accepted until January 31, and the complete survey report will become available in March. To learn more, click here.

The Security Executive Council published a second edition of the book Security Careers, by Jerry Brennan and Foushée Group’s Steve Walker, which incorporates more than 70 full security job descriptions along with compensation data from the 2009 survey. Click here for more information.
