Industry Standard Skill Set For Job Roles


Trends in Information Security are dynamic in nature giving the opportunity to the students to learn and enhance their knowledge continuously. Continuous research plays a vital role in developing assessments which are in conjunction with the current trends. The R&D teams continuously research these trends which are then developed to create an extensive job task analysis. The outcome of the job task analyses is then transformed into assessments which are in line with the industry skill standard benchmarks which engage cognitive learning and analyze the skill set essential for individuals to perform to be successful on the job. Assessments are designed to be effective cognitive learning processes which ensure that the candidate displays primary knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary for the job role. Once the assessments are developed, they undergo a set of psychometric analyses to ensure that the final assessment meets design objectives, market requirements, and legal standards. Cyber security education frameworks such as NICE, CREST, NIST, etc. are mapped to design objectives and market requirements collected through industry engagement by way of market surveys, secondary research. Prepare brings a new dimension to the science of assessments by focusing on innovation, customization, security and customer satisfaction.

SMEs are engaged to create assessment items based on the job-task analysis document. The assessment items pass through a series of technical reviews before they are published on the CyberQ.
