NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 16, 2015) - TRU Staffing Partners, a nationally recognized, award-winning search firm representing talent and opportunities in the legal technology, e-discovery and litigation support space, today announced the acquisition of the Kennett Group and the launching of a new division, TRU Cyber, which will focus explicitly on cybersecurity staffing and career management.

Jeff Scarpitti, founder and managing principal of the Kennett Group, a boutique search firm with laser-like focus on privacy, cybersecurity, data analytics and legal technology, has joined TRU as partner and president of the new TRU Cyber division. A former practicing attorney, certified IAPP member, frequent moderator, speaker and author on hiring strategies and attorney development in the privacy and data security space, Scarpitti is bringing his existing portfolio of relationships and extensive subject-matter expertise in cybersecurity and legal technology to TRU's clients and candidates. With this acquisition, the Kennett Group clients will have access to an expansive array of global services from the TRU recruitment team and access to TRU's extensive roster of contract e-discovery professionals across the nation.

"Jeff is a gifted recruiter who will elevate and expand TRU's capabilities, enhance our already rigorous commitment to customized career consultation and deepen our internal subject-matter expertise," states Jared Coseglia, founder and CEO of TRU Staffing Partners. "TRU's acquisition of the Kennett Group and formation of the TRU Cyber division will formalize our commitment and accelerate our ability to effectively represent thousands of cybersecurity professionals with hundreds of job openings across multiple continents, just as TRU has successfully done in the e-discovery space for more than five years."

"I couldn't be happier to join the TRU family and their world-class team of recruiters and business development professionals," shares Scarpitti. "TRU's reputation and resources will allow TRU Cyber to deliver more candidates and maintain more active openings focused not only on cyber and information security, but also advanced business analytics, CISO roles, law firms growing their privacy practices and consulting firms specializing in advanced analytics services."

In addition to traditional full-time permanent placement, TRU Cyber will offer "surge staffing" to corporations, law firms and consultancies in need of temporary talent to augment their existing staff during times of crisis, particularly data breach, response and remediation. The TRU Cyber division will also boast a portfolio of available talent with niche expertise in technologies like Palantir, RedOwl, Teradata, NLP, Hadoop, Tableau and more.
