Are you the “security guy/gal” in your company? Did you implement a multi-factor authentication protocol for your refrigerator? If security is what you “do” I have a favor to ask. Our friends over at CompTIA are developing a new advanced security certification exam to follow their Security+ exam and they’re looking for your input on the exam objectives. This is very similar to what MSL does with our “blueprinting” exercise when we develop an exam. It should take only 10 minutes to complete and can be found here:
As an added bonus, CompTIA is giving away a CompTIA T-shirt to every 10th person who completes the survey!
[cue the fast talking announcer] CompTIA values your privacy. Results are completely anonymous and the data will only be viewed in the aggregate. The survey will be open until September 8, 2010. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any trouble with the survey.
Thanks in advance for helping our friends out!
Here is a big joke. How CompTIA can give away a T-shirt to an anonymous? Nevertheless I have completed the survey.
You got it right, they didn't even bother to ask your email address.
After completing the requested information I recieved a page saying "If you are selected" asking for a shipping address and shirt size. Does this mean I actually was selected, or just that the page was finally inserted at the end?
Yes, they collect your contact information and shirt size at the end of the survey, rather than the beginning. My impression was that they ask this of everyone and it doesn't mean you've been selected yet.
Thanks everyone for taking the survey! CompTIA was very impressed with the response they got from the Born To Learn community. You guys (and gals!) make me proud!
In regards to the T-Shirt giveaway, I talked with CompTIA and Alice is correct, there is a page at the end of the survey where they ask if you would like to be included in the prize drawing. I did find out that for legal reasons, they can only offer the T-shirts if you selected United States as the country you are in which could be why some folks didn't see the page. Sorry for the confusion.
