COLUMBIA, Md. (PRWEB) February 21, 2018 - Chiron Technology Services, Inc., a leading provider of cybersecurity services and training solutions to government and commercial clients, announced today that it will launch an online Cyber Core Operations knowledge and skills assessment. This will provide aspiring information operations professionals with a personalized analysis of their competencies in the areas of Windows, *nix, traffic analysis, and scripting. These core areas are a critical foundation to the success of developing professionals in cybersecurity careers. Through an initial corporate social responsibility initiative, anyone can take the assessment for free.
"Too often a single certification or single area of technical focus limits the professional. In some cases, it provides a false sense of ability which potentially discourages individuals from pursuing a career in information operations and perceived as too complex when introduced to a high functioning security operations team," stated Chad Carroll, Chiron Partner and Chief Strategy Officer. "...Our goal is to break down those barriers and introduce professionals, career changers, and interested individuals an opportunity to measure their knowledge and skills in a private and affordable session."
Carroll Continued, "While we are proud of our team’s success in developing thousands of information operators in the United States Department of Defense, we are keenly aware of the critical shortage of info-sec professionals globally. We are a company that is passionate about supporting the information security profession. Our experience in developing and mentoring thousands of security operators aligned with the organizational needs of our customers, provides Chiron a holistic approach to the knowledge, skills and abilities we build into our training requirements. This ensures the professional is ready on keyboard protecting and defending their organization's assets after completing Chiron training."
The cyber operations prep skills assessment rollout will begin late March 2018. To preregister please email Dan Callahan, Sr. Director Strategic Development, via the contact information listed.
