TalPoint is the first online talent marketplace exclusively for security, privacy, risk and compliance experts. We help our experts build their brand, increase their visibility, and reduce the time spent on non-billable administrative activities. Our platform offers efficiency and ease, for our experts and clients.

If required by clients, we are able to facilitate a background check to be conducted prior to projects being started.

Joining our expert community is simple. Get started by submitting your application on our website. We’d love to learn more about you and welcome you to our community.

On average, our experts have about 17 years of experience, however, we accept a range of experience levels. We seek to have a diverse network to meet the full spectrum of our client’s needs. The most important factor for joining our network is a specialization in security, privacy, risk and/or compliance.

All TalPoint experts go through a detailed screening process with our expert development team. During the process they are evaluated for skills, certifications and accreditations, past work experience, as well as project management and communications skills. Our vetting process should complement your candidate screening process to ensure it’s the best fit for the outcome you’re looking to achieve.    
All of the experts in our community are under a strict NDA with TalPoint, which includes confidentiality for any client projects. Further, project information is limited to only the team working on them.

We will work with you and your CISO or dedicated security officer to ensure your standards are met.

Our consultants are subject matter experts with deep experience in security, privacy, risk and compliance. On average, they have 17 years of experience, but we also have experts with more tenure, as well as experts who are earlier in their careers. Depending on your project, we’ll match you with the expert whose skillset best matches your needs. Learn more about Our Experts.

In most cases, our experts work remotely. If there’s an instance where it is necessary to have an expert on site, we’ll work with you to try to find a qualified match.

We invoice clients twice a month on the 1st and the 15th of the month (or the following Monday if those days fall on a weekend). Invoices are generated with Net 10 terms, so our clients have an opportunity to review the charges prior to processing. We currently accept all major credit cards and ACH.

Our large and diverse network of experts is here to help...
