MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 14, 2017-- One of the greatest challenges facing today’s government Cyber Security organizations is the retention and training of their operational cyber workforce. With limited security budgets, cyber security managers must ensure that the right people are in the right job with the right training. CYBRScore™, the new cyber skills assessment tool from Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (Nasdaq: CMTL), is now making that process more effective.
“CYBRScore™ Skills Assessments provide a quantitative measurement of performance, using practical, hands-on scenarios to evaluate job-role competencies, knowledge, skills and abilities,” said Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. “Our Skills Assessments allow enterprises to focus training investments for the highest impact.”
“The CYBRScore™ assessment details an overall score with individual skill breakdown and provides targeted recommendations for training to improve the skill areas that need augmentation,” Mr. Kornberg added.
Erik Wallace, Director of Product Development for Comtech’s Cyber Services product line, will be a featured speaker at AFCEA’s Defensive Cyber Operations Symposium in Baltimore, Md. through June 15 presenting a detailed description of CYBRScore™ and the impact it can have in government cyber security programs. Mr. Wallace is a member of Cellular Telecommunications Internet Association (CTIA)’s Cybersecurity Working Group, the FCC’s Communications Security, Reliability and Interoperability Council (CSRIC) V Working Group 7 – Cyber Security and the Chesapeake Regional Tech Council (CRTC) Cyber Security Working Group. He holds eleven U.S. patents in the areas of messaging and telecommunications.
