U.S. Cyber Challenge and Monster Government Solutions Collaborate to Increase Communications and Opportunities to Cybersecurity Enthusiasts Through Social Networking
Washington, D.C., March 25, 2015 – Today, U.S. Cyber Challenge (USCC) and Monster Government Solutions launch the highly anticipated online community CyberCompEx.org – a social networking portal geared specifically toward cybersecurity enthusiasts. The launch follows the previous collaboration announcement between USCC and Monster Government Solutions in December 2014 during the DHS S&T Cyber Security Division R&D Showcase in Washington, DC.
“With the significant gap in highly skilled cybersecurity professionals in our nation’s workforce today, there is not only the need to find and train talented individuals into the field, as we do with U.S. Cyber Challenge, but also increase communication between talent, competitions, educational groups, and employers,” stated Karen S. Evans, National Director for U.S. Cyber Challenge. “That is why we collaborated with Monster Government Solutions to revitalize CyberCompEx – a cybersecurity-specific social networking platform designed to do just that – increase dialogue among all levels of the cybersecurity field where individuals can learn from one another and discover new opportunities to develop their skill sets.”
“In this day and age, the importance of finding, hiring, and developing the right cybersecurity talent cannot be overstated. CyberCompEx sets the stage for cybersecurity professionals and employers to connect like never before,” explains Susan Fallon, Vice President for Global Strategy and Business Development at Monster Government Solutions. “Monster is proud to work with the U.S. Cyber Challenge to deliver such an essential resource.”
CyberCompEx is a virtual community built to provide an avenue for those in the cybersecurity field, as well as those simply interested in cybersecurity, to network with others possessing similar interests and skills and also with potential employers. Within the portal, community members are able to create a profile, converse with other individuals through the use of forums and messaging and be notified of events.
