Cyber Range Assessments
With more and more organizations being charged with the protection of sensitive data, organizational assets, and intellectual property; ensuring your team has the skills to succeed is no longer a nice to have. Accurate assessment is a critical need!
How It Works
The Market-Leading Cybersecurity Training and Simulation Platform
With over 500,000 cybersecurity positions open in the United States (www.cyberseek.org), the race is on to fill millions of critical positions to decrease the risk for your organization.
Accurately assessing the skillset of incoming candidates, existing team members, and team readiness for multiple incident types is of paramount importance to reduce risk exposure for your organization. The more you know about a team member or candidate’s cyber skill set, the better prepared you will be to up-skill existing team members or make informed hiring decisions regarding qualified candidates.
Certifications Test Theoretical Knowledge. Assessments Verify Skill
Getting your CISSP is not as hard as it used to be. With hundreds of crash courses on sites like Coursera, Udemy and many others; those who seek to gather industry certifications can do so quite easily. According to a recent report from Fortinet, 85% of organizations have team members that have security certifications. In fact, 82% of organizations prefer to hire candidates with certifications. However, given that the testing for these industry certifications are in a quiz format, they do not accurately tell us whether a candidate has the appropriate technical skills to be successful in a cyber role.
Organizations Struggle to Recruit Qualified Candidates
The struggle to find qualified individuals to work in a Security Operations Center is real. According to the same Fortinet report, 68% of organizations struggle to recruit, hire and retain cybersecurity talent. With such a struggle existing in the market you want to ensure that the talent you are bringing into your team is qualified, workforce ready and can immediately contribute to a team struggling with incident overload.
Cybersecurity Skills Gaps Have a Major Impact
Cybersecurity professionals have reported a major impact as a result of the cybersecurity skills shortage. According to the Life and Times of Cybersecurity Professionals Report from ESG/ISSA, 70% of cybersecurity professionals feel that their organization has been impacted by a shortage of skilled analysts. Fortinet has reported that 73% of organizations had at least one intrusion or breach over the past year that can at least be partially attributed to a gap in cyber security skills on their team. 47% of organizations had three or more incidents that could be attributed to the cyber security skills gap.

With more and more organizations being charged with the protection of sensitive data, organizational assets, and intellectual property; ensuring your team has the skills to succeed is no longer a nice to have. Accurate assessment is now a core need.
Cyber Skills Assessment Across the Employee Lifecycle
Assessing whether a candidate has the right skills and knowledge to be successful does not stop once an employee has been hired. With accurate assessment, based on displayed skills and knowledge, you can develop an up-skilling plan for any employee. Assessment throughout the training process will allow you to see whether the training is working, if an employee is ready for promotion, or if skills have deteriorated over time.
Working in a zero trust environment should require every member of the team not just to tell you what skills they have, but to be able to show you the skills they can leverage when it counts. Only with accurate assessment can you truly reduce the risk to your organization with confidence.
