Vervoe, an AI-powered skills testing platform, today released a new set of Cybersecurity Job Simulations. Designed to make hiring an in-house cybersecurity expert easy, these simulations simplify the process of validating skills and enhance the candidate experience. Hirers can watch candidates configure firewalls, patch vulnerabilities and investigate intrusions — all within a live and immersive terminal environment — to ensure they have cybersecurity skills organizations need.
Vervoe Co-Founder David Weinberg, himself a cybersecurity architect, believes current cybersecurity recruitment processes aren’t effective.
“Traditional recruitment methods like resume screening, interviews, and even forms of psychometric testing that focus on personalities are almost irrelevant when it comes to identifying top talent, as they fundamentally lack the ability to assess and validate skills.
Our cybersecurity job simulations have been built from the ground up to ensure that only the most relevant skills are assessed so companies can make data-driven decisions when hiring in-house cybersecurity experts. In simple terms, we’ve done the work so hiring managers don’t have to,” said David.
Omer Molad, Co-Founder and CEO of Vervoe, says that most companies are acutely aware of the importance of cybersecurity, but may be unsure of how to identify top performers when hiring in-house.
Glassdoor, the worldwide leader on insights about jobs and companies, today announced the launch of its inaugural Equity Xray™. Based on the input of millions of Glassdoor reviews, the first of its kind Equity Xray™ highlights where employees from distinct demographic groups report meaningful differences in workplace experience and satisfaction. By comparing the distribution of company ratings submitted by current employees across both gender identity and race/ethnicity, the Equity Xray™ identifies the companies that are rated equitable in those categories as well as those that have opportunities for improvement.
The Equity Xray™ leverages millions of anonymous employee reviews from Glassdoor. Users are able to submit their overall rating of their current or former employer on a scale of 1 to 5 stars as well as provide their demographic information, including their gender identity and race/ethnicity, which include employees who self-identify as White, Black or African American, Hispanic/Latinx or Asian. Companies appearing in the Equity Xray™ must have a minimum of 30 ratings from employees who worked at the company for some period of time over the past year (December 1, 2021 through November 30, 2022). More details and the complete methodology can be found here.
Within the Equity Xray™, employee experiences for 371 unique companies were identified as either equitable or having opportunities for improvement for each of the two dimensions – gender and race/ethnicity. An interactive table with a comprehensive overview of companies across all four categories can be found here.
