(ISC)² is excited to share with you that we are initiating an important step in our exam development process, and we need your help!
We are looking for cybersecurity professionals to take our newest Job Task Analysis (JTA) survey. Typically, we will reach out to you to take a JTA survey for the certification that you hold, but this time it’s a little different. (ISC)² is working on developing our first new certification since the CCSP, and it’s aimed at helping cybersecurity career hopefuls get started in the field!
To fill the cybersecurity workforce gap, we need to address the workforce shortage facing the industry, especially among entry- and junior-level positions. A foundational certification will help (ISC)² build a path for professionals around the world to a rewarding, successful career in cybersecurity.
Regardless of what certification you hold (even if you don’t hold one at all), your experience level, your specialty, your industry, your organization size … we want to hear from you! This survey is open to take until October 20, 2021. If you’re an (ISC)² member, you can provide your name and ID # when taking the survey and you’ll earn 5 CPE credits. We’ll add them to your member account by November 12, 2021. If you’re not an (ISC)² member, we still welcome your input and appreciate your participation.
The outcome of this survey will be an exam outline for a new (ISC)² examination to help validate the necessary fundamental skills and abilities cybersecurity deem necessary for those just setting out on their career journey. You can access the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/EntryLevel-JTA2021
Please feel free to share the survey with any of your colleagues and peers. Thank you for helping us build a path to cybersecurity success and taking one crucial step toward addressing the workforce gap!
Stay connected for exciting developments on this front in the weeks and months to come.
