How can you use Project Ares for cyber candidate skill assessment?

For example: If you’re hiring for an entry level Cyber Defense Analyst role, you might list the following tasks to have the candidate demonstrate skills in reconnaissance, sensor tuning, log aggregation and query, and network traffic analysis.

  • Analyze network traffic using Wireshark
  • Develop intrusion detection rules for Snort
  • Analyze a network security incident using packet capture utilities

This could be followed by a more open-ended scenario in Project Ares to analyze network traffic, identify malicious attacks on a network, stop the exfiltration and then analyze the extent of the data loss. The candidate’s success can be measured in if/how hints are used, their overall scoring on tasks, and success against objectives.

Evaluate Candidates in Real-Time with 24/7 browser access to on-demand, real-world scenario activities.
Assess cyber competencies against other candidates and co-workers.
