Finding the Right Cybersecurity
Students to Create a Diverse Team
Haystack Solutions helped the University of North Georgia (UNG) to find diverse and non-traditional students that were literally a “needle in the haystack” of potential cyber talent with no prior cybersecurity knowledge, skills, or abilities. The resulting team won the NSA Codebreaker Challenge in 2019 and 2020.
They distributed CyberGEN.IQ to potential team members and based the selection of members for the team solely on the test results of the students. The team selected not only beat out competition by tremendous margins in back-to-back years, but also increased the percentage of women on the team from 10% to 20%, increased the overall size of the team by 4x, and expanded diversity within the program. Of those women:
- Most never studied cyber or software development
- Many are considering cyber careers
- Many have stayed in the studies for more than two years
- All experienced national competitive recognition
- CyberGEN.IQ test encouraged them, making the industry less intimidating
