Security+ Experts Needed

CompTIA is looking for IT professionals in the field of security to be involved in an Item Development Workshop for CompTIA’s Security+ assessment products.

The purpose of this Item Development workshop is to create and review item content (questions) for CompTIA’s Security+ assessments.

Assistance from subject matter experts (SMEs) is crucial in providing industry relevant certifications. Potential SMEs must have at least 5 years current experience in the field of information security. It is preferred that SMEs are Security+ certified (or equivalent/higher credential).

SMEs will receive a $400 a day stipend for the 5-day workshop, as well as meals provided during the 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. working days. Recognition for SMEs includes listing on the CompTIA website pending full participation in the program.

International SMEs (outside of North America) will receive an extra $100/ day stipend to help defer additional travel costs.

When: May 11-15, 2020
Where: CompTIA Headquarters; 3500 Lacey Rd. Suite 100, Downers Grove, IL 60515 (Downers Grove is a suburb of Chicago)

Only professionals currently working in the field of information security should apply. Although CompTIA appreciates interest from the training community, applications from trainers, authors, or individuals who may profit or materially benefit from knowledge of the CompTIA credential content are not eligible to participate.
