Consider how you can help inspire a safe and secure cyber world by contributing your expertise to the development of the gold standard in information security credentials. Opportunities to help create and improve (ISC)² examinations are plentiful. (ISC)² holds exam development workshops several times throughout the year in order to update and refresh its item banks and create new exam forms for all the credentialing exams it offers. Workshops are open to all (ISC)² members holding relevant credentials in the subject matter of a workshop.
- Even though workshops are voluntary activities, and (ISC)² does not compensate its members for attending.
- (ISC)² pays all travel, lodging and out-of-pocket expenses of the attendees.
- Members earn 1 CPE (Continuing Professional Education) credit per hour worked when attending a workshop, typically this amounts to 21 CPEs per workshop.
- Workshops are usually planned for two and a half days.
(ISC) ² workshops are conducted as face-to-face meetings in a conference room setting where physical security can be closely monitored. Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) and Conflict of Interest (COI) must be signed before every workshop.
Our volunteer Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) represent some of the most highly regarded experts in their respective fields, and we consider ourselves lucky to be able to know and work with.
That’s enough of us telling you about the workshops, hear what (ISC)² Member Volunteers have to say about their Exam Development experience…
“Wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and ISC2 for an outstanding experience in my first go at an ISC2 item writing workshop. I very much enjoyed myself and think I gained as much as I hopefully provided. It was a very professionally run process from the beginning to end and I could not be happier with it, even to the point that in the future if my employer does not approve of my attendance on company time I will take PTO to attend”.
Hope to work with you again soon!
Thank you so much. I truly enjoyed the (ISC)² Exam Writing Workshop. Although I had MAC and other issues that impacted my exam question and reference productivity, I found the process very interesting. I enjoy critical thinking and research, so this was an idea project for me. The people I met and the exam question review process was such a wonderful experience. It was fulfilling to utilize my skills in such a unique manner. It was also wonderful to hear that we were a very productive team.
Thank you for the opportunity.
Now we want to hear from you!
