CompTIA is looking for IT security professionals with experience in one or more of the following IT security fields:

  • data analysis and response,
  • risk management,
  • penetration testing,
  • compliance and auditing,
  • and incident response including attack identification

Accepted applicants will be involved in developing and reviewing item content for the new CompTIA Security Analyst Certification exam. Certifications in these areas are desired but not required.

The purpose of a Text Based Item Writing workshop is to create and review item content for the CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst Certification Exam.

Assistance from subject matter experts (SMEs) is crucial in providing an industry relevant exam. Potential SMEs must be IT security professionals with at least 5 years’ experience working in the field. Ideal candidates will have a Bachelor’s degree and work in one of the fields listed above. It is preferred that SMEs are CompTIA Security+ certified or hold an equivalent certificate.

$300 A Day Stipend

SMEs will receive a $300 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.
