Recently, an analyst on our Information Security team working in the SOC quit for greener pasture at another company. I work in a different, but very related role as an IT Auditor. I interface with the members of the IT Security almost daily in completing my work.
The IT Security team is looking for a replacement for the person that left. I participated in interviews of candidates for this open position, and the last handful that applied were unsuitable - inadequate technical skills, poor communication ability, behavioral red flags at interview etc.
I have many personal friends in addition to past colleagues in my LinkedIn professional network working in the InfoSec profession that I feel would be great fit for this open position at my company. I would feel comfortable in recommending them.
However, is it Ok for me to use my LinkedIn account, a personal account, to advertise this position on my behalf of my company?
