What makes a good operator? There are a variety of skills, abilities, and traits (SATs) that are critical in different types of cyber operations. Given the sheer number of SATs, it is difficult to identify which individuals have the greatest potential for cyber operations. Further, it is critical to determine if a specific SAT can be learned or reinforced. This webinar will describe some of these SATs and how they differ between cyber operators, technical, and non-technical personnel based on preliminary research. In particular, we propose methods for identifying and measuring the most relevant SATs.
