Cyber Security Proficiency Testing Services
Baltimore Cyber is the exclusive provider of technical proficiency testing for third party assessment organizations (3PAOs) under the A2LA Program Requirements in partnership with the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). The Baltimore Cyber FedRAMP exercise is a real-time assessment of a simulated cloud environment. Participating teams are provided four hours to review an abbreviated system security plan and assess a subset of 20 security controls for system implementation and configuration non-compliance issues using the examine, test, and interview assessment methods. A system administrator / proctor is also present and available to assist teams in gathering the appropriate artifacts/evidence needed. At the conclusion of the activity, teams must document their analysis and risk recommendation in an abbreviated security assessment report and risk exposure table .
Baltimore Cyber developed an education pipeline that works with employers to train and place qualified BC students in full time entry-level IT/Cyber positions. Our Intern and apprenticeship programs focus on those new to the industry often the unemployed or underemployed. Baltimore Cyber offers students three career pathways to employment; Internships, Apprenticeships and full time journeyman employment.
Interns generally work for an organization for three to six months, often part time. Internships are provided hands-on real-world work experience. This allows the intern to experience a career and the employer the opportunity to evaluate the intern. Internships are often unpaid but can lead to follow on employment.
Apprenticeship programs combine academic training and on-the-job-training providing the apprentice real-world work experience. Generally an IT / Cyber apprenticeship program is conducted over twelve to twenty four months. The apprentice splits their time between academic training and on-the-job training. An in-house mentor monitors the apprentice and provides guidance. Often the apprentice is compensated at about 50% the standard journeyman level. As the apprentice progresses through the program they complete established milestones and compensation is increased until reaching full journeyman level compensation at the end of the program.
