Apple Will Hire Its Contract Security Staff On A Full-Time Basis

TechCrunch

Apple will hire its contract security staff on a full-time basis, a decision that continues a nascent trend of technology giants reducing their use of external labor for non-technical roles. Google made a similar move with its security staff late last year.

According to a media report, Apple will bring “the majority” of its contractual security staffers in-house.

In the current financial climate, wealthy technology companies have come under increased scrutiny in regards to their hiring procedures. Firms willing to spend millions to acquire talent from small or failing startups that have been unwilling to pay their on-campus staff as regular employees have been a sore point.

Current contract employees will be able to apply for the new, full-time security roles at Apple. In a comment, Apple noted in a statement that it is “working closely” with its current “security vendor” to allow for the hiring of many current contractors of the smaller firm.
