About the test

The Cybersecurity online test assesses knowledge of web application and network security to prevent unauthorized access and misuse of resources.

The assessment includes work-sample tasks such as:

  • Managing authorization and controlling access rights.
  • Encrypting and decrypting information.
  • Testing security to prevent malicious attacks.

A good cybersecurity specialist should know how to find security flaws in an application or network and be familiar with common methods of attack, such as SQL injection, XSS, and CSRF, in order to protect valuable data.

Decorative quote

Simple, straight-forward technical testing

TestDome is simple, provides a reasonable (though not extensive) battery of tests to choose from, and doesn't take the candidate an inordinate amount of time. It also simulates working pressure with the time limits.
