CYBRScore™ Skills Assessment work role using the knowledge, skills and

to provide the most accurate evaluation of an individual’s capabilities
with respect to all 125 knowledge, skills, abilities and tasks defined
by the NCWF for the Cyber Defense Analyst work role.

performance, using practical, hands-on scenarios to evaluate job-role
