Haystack Solutions, released the Cyber Aptitude & Talent Assessment (CATA). CATA predicts candidate success in cybersecurity industry roles with uncanny precision. It is the first such commercially available solution that is scientifically designed to identify the natural cognitive abilities of individuals entering or upskilling in cybersecurity roles. Until now, such assessments were available only within military & federal intelligence-focused organizations.
CATA focuses on five key cerebral dimensions: critical thinking, deliberate action, real-time action, proactive thinking, & reactive thinking. It includes a series of tests designed to measure cognitive abilities & map natural aptitude within four domains of cybersecurity careers in the commercial sector:
Offensive operations: initiative & creative problem-solving skills using partial data in real time;
Defensive operations: detecting anomalies with scans & real time, partial data, screening out distractions;
Analytics & forensics: interpret & reconcile exhaustive amounts of often conflicting data; and,
Design/development: abilities to programatize creative problem solving & build model programs for execution.
