A military branch needed to strengthen its capability to deter, detect, protect, defend, and respond to the rising number of attacks on U.S. military networks.
Using our Agile Workforce and Talent Management solutions, MBA CSi formed this cyber team with the best and brightest cyber professionals recruited from around the nation. They work from fixed, remote, and expeditionary locations worldwide to introduce capacities that help ensure U.S. freedom in cyberspace while denying the same to our adversaries. This cyber team collectively established a community of practices that share emerging security best practices within and with other federal agencies.
Working with the customer, we developed a multi-track recruiting strategy to fulfill the distinctive skill set requirements. We targeted experienced industry experts and collegiate phenoms with the necessary skills, knowledge, and abilities to satisfy the customer’s civilian vacancies. MBA CSi designed, developed, and produced multimedia advertisement, video, messaging, branding, marketing materials, and a dedicated website to support and facilitate recruiting. Moreover, we conducted detailed market research to produce a targeted list of colleges, universities, and industry events to successfully identify, attract, and recruit highly qualified individuals with the required skills to exceed the customers hiring requirements.
MBA CSi also prepared, organized, and participated in hundreds of hiring events and led the customer’s annual collegiate cyber competitions. This served as an essential venue to meet and exceed recruitment and hiring objectives. Collaborating with the customer, we developed innovative interviewing processes and artifacts that became an integral interviewing tool and the foundation for all agency cyber interviews. Our recruiters supported the client with the on-boarding process and maintained communication with candidates throughout the lengthy security clearance processes. The MBA CSi recruiting effort for this customer was quickly adapted and scaled to include all civilian occupational series/specialties as required.
Our progressive cyber recruiting efforts exceeded industry standards for the identification and hiring by more than 200%. Our propriety Agile Workforce and Talent Management solutions provided the additional support needed to identify and hire cybersecurity Rockstars. While technical expertise is essential for engagement, we empower and emphasize a collaborative spirit to drive mission success. Since our first contract, we have recruited over 400 cybersecurity experts and maintain an exclusive and independent cybersecurity database of tens of thousands of candidates.
Our Agile Workforce and Talent Management Solution is designed to scale to any agency’s mission or needs irrespective of technology or skill. Email info@MBACSi.com for more information on how MBA CSI’s Agile Workforce and Talent Management Solutions can support your agency.
