Army Reserve, Carnegie Mellon University Establish Database to Support Cyber Talent Identification

PeopleThe U.S. Army Reserve and Carnegie Mellon University have developed a database designed to support cyber talent identification tasks of the reserve unit and help track skills soldiers develop in civilian jobs.

The Army said Friday its reserve component has discussed plans with the Army Cyber Command on the potential adaptation of the Cyber Warrior Database as a standardized tool of the cyber force for talent management.

Col. James Chatfield said CWARD is intended as similar to a casting tool that helps select a particular actor with a specific talent set that fits the need for a particular film.

Chatfield added that the database can support talent identification tasks as well as provide details on the qualifications of soldiers in all the standard Army ASIs as well as a soldier’s practical experience on various missions from their civilian lives and as a cyber soldier and reservist.
