What’s an efficient and easy way to find in-demand, qualified and talented cybersecurity employees? Having tangible validation that proves their abilities. That’s where the National Cyber League (NCL) can help through its recently released 2017 Scouting Reports.
Employers are able to witness who has cybersecurity skills and talent by accessing the NCL’s performance-based assessment—the Fall Season’s Scouting Reports. This past season saw 3,461 players—a record high registration rate—where competition was fierce, and the top performers were evident.
“The NCL Scouting Reports can be used as part of any employer hiring decision as it provides an external validation of skills demonstrated in competitive game play as well as identifies areas for improvement,” said Dr. Dan Manson, NCL commissioner.
These Scouting Reports are used as a unique recruiting tool that enhances job seekers' résumés. When participants compete in NCL games, their performance, strengths and weaknesses are measured in detailed reports, which are compared against fellow competitors. The Reports also measure a player’s performance against a range of industry-backed competencies such as scanning, wireless security, open source intelligence gathering, traffic analysis, log analysis, and web application security.
Businesses looking to hire can purchase these Scouting Reports but customize them to zero in on desired skills, geography or demographics to hire exactly who they need.
