The Talent Screening Service prevents the inadvertent screen out of top performers due to over-reliance on outdated metrics, and it also ensures and demonstrates that unintended biases have no place in the organization’s cybersecurity talent recruitment and hiring process
• And because Point3 helps organizations upskill their cybersecurity teams to keep pace with the massive malware innovations bad actors continually make, its growth drove Inc. Magazine to name it one of the Fastest-Growing Companies in 2019 and rank it on the Inc. 500.
• Point3 Security provides the tools for organizations to build and upskill in-house talent, enabling organizations to fill more advanced roles faster, more economically, and with a better “fit” – a positive impact on any bottom line. The tools and opportunities for personnel growth and retention that ESCALATE and the new Talent Screening Services provide demonstrate an organization’s commitment to its team’s professional development – and to the continued growth of the industry.

Brief Overview

In too many organizations, cybersecurity candidate screening is conducted by people with little background in security, and who rely solely on resumes and credentials – important data, but which do not reflect a candidate’s actual skills and initiative. A poor fit to the organization’s challenges often results in cybersecurity talent turnover at rates significantly higher than in other areas of a company. Also, senior resources may be recruited for roles and responsibilities that a company’s existing talent might be better and more immediately suited for.

The new Talent Screening Service from Point3 is powered by their known ecosystem, ESCALATE, and is the latest addition to the Point3 Security products. While the ESCALATE platform helps organizations assess skills that they cannot otherwise necessarily learn from a candidate’s degrees, credentials or resume, the new Talent Screening Service helps organizations identify the optimal talent for their needs, both in hiring and during upskilling, with unprecedented efficiency, economy and precision.

The Point3 Security’s Talent Screening service lets recruiters and hiring companies provide candidates with CTF, Pentest and other challenges. Resulting metrics let the hiring organization fairly analyze the results of all applicants, including current in-house talent, and move forward with their top talents. It helps companies eliminate the human biases that enter the hiring process and puts all applicants in the hiring pool in a clearer light. For example, the qualities and skills that help identify a well-suited red or purple teamer are different from those of a blue teamer, which are also different from other roles. The Point3 Talent Screening service identifies these competencies and drives with new precision and timeliness – indicators that are virtually undetectable by more traditional methods.
