Staffing 360 Solutions' Division Recognized in Leading Cyber Security Industry Publications

Cyber 360 Solutions' President Mark Aiello Quoted in Industry Leading Publications InformationWeek and NextGov

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 25, 2013) - Staffing 360 Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: STAF), an emerging growth public company engaged in the provision of international staffing services in IT, financial, accounting, healthcare and cyber security industries, announced today that its Cyber 360 Solutions division was recognized in two recent articles on the cyber security industry.

The articles appeared in InformationWeek, one of the IT industry's leading publications with over 2.24 million average unique monthly visitors to its website, and NextGov, the all-day information resource for federal technology decision makers. In both articles, Cyber 360 Solutions President, Mark Aiello, provided his expertise in the cyber security industry.

"Our recent appearance in industry leading publications is fantastic," stated Allan Hartley, Chief Executive Officer of Staffing 360 Solutions. "Mark Aiello, who leads the Cyber 360 Solutions division, has done a brilliant job increasing awareness of our brand in the cyber security industry."

Mr. Aiello wrote the InformationWeek article after attending an industry function in Boston. He authored the article based on his knowledge of the cyber security job market, with a particular focus on the difficulty in finding quality cyber security talent. He describes the issues surrounding this scarcity, which is due in large part to the rising threat of cyber crime and cyber terrorism. 

In the InformationWeek article, Mr. Aiello states, "... demand for cyber security professionals has grown more than 3.5 times faster in the past five years compared with other IT jobs, and about 12 times faster than demand for all other jobs."

Likewise, the NextGov article, written by Aliya Sternstein, is in regards to the government shutdown and its effects on cyber security personnel in the federal workforce. Entitled "Cyber Civil Servants Knock on Industry's Door after Shutdown," the article focuses on the number of government workers in the cyber industry that have recently started dipping their toes into the private sector job market. 

Mr. Aiello is quoted in the NextGov article as saying, "Rarely do we receive inbound calls from cyber security people who work for the federal government -- a lot of times because the job is so secure." However, in the article he goes on to describe the effect of the government shutdown by concluding, "They recognize they can probably make more money in the private sector [and ask themselves] 'Why am I going through this if it's just going to happen every quarter, every election cycle?'"
