Comtech Launches CYBRScore™ Cyber Defence Analyst Skills Assessment Tool

Comtech Telecommunications Corp. announced today that its Command & Control Technologies group, which is part of Comtech’s Government Solutions segment, has launched its third CYBRScore™ Skills Assessment work role using the knowledge, skills and abilities defined in the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (NCWF). In today’s rapidly evolving cybersecurity threat environment, the awareness and knowledge of employees are essential to protect critical enterprise infrastructure; however, few organizations are able to quantitatively measure the skills of their key personnel responsible for cybersecurity protection. CYBRScore™, the new cyber skills assessment tool from Comtech, provides quantitative metrics on cybersecurity job role skills.
The Cyber Defence Analyst role is available on a cloud-based platform as a series of five 30-45 minute scenario-based exercises. Our patented PerformanScore® technology measures more than 450 data points to provide the most accurate evaluation of an individual’s capabilities with respect to all 125 knowledge, skills, abilities and tasks defined by the NCWF for the Cyber Defense Analyst work role.
"CYBRScore™ Skills Assessments provide a quantitative measurement of performance, using practical, hands-on scenarios to evaluate job-role competencies," said Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. "Our Skills Assessments provide specific insights into strengths and weaknesses of an enterprise’s Cybersecurity workforce and identify the highest impact training investments."
