Our entry-level certification, (ISC)² Certified in Cybersecurity℠, is fully operational!
We are excited for our association as (ISC)² Certified in Cybersecurity℠, our new entry-level certification, is now a fully operational program.
More than 1,500 individuals, who passed the exam during our pilot program, are now on their path to full certification! These individuals have proven they have the strong problem-solving abilities, communication skills, strategic thinking skills and an eagerness to learn needed to be a successful cybersecurity professional.
This certification is an opportunity to encourage new entrants to the field who will train under experienced cybersecurity professionals and managers while growing their own expertise.
Once again, congratulations on your achievement! We cannot thank you enough for your participation in this historic pilot program, and your patience as we closed out the pilot in order to deliver your final results.
The endorsement option for CC will be available beginning this Thursday, September 1. Please access the online endorsement form then and let us know if you need any further help.
Please note that while you do not need to submit any work experience for the CC. The endorsement form is needed to show your commitment to abide by the (ISC)² Code of Ethics. In addition to completing the endorsement application, an annual maintenance fee is required. For CC members this is U.S. $50.
@AndreaMoore My understanding is that (ISC)2 was strategically against tiered membership levels (although I haven't really heard anyone say that exactly). Am I correct in thinking that CC members and Associate Members will be both charged $50 for AMFs, while SSCP and other member levels will attract a $125 AMF fee? Is this not further cementing the idea of tiered levels?
Does this mean that CC will effectively enjoy the same T&Cs as a current Associate?
Thanks for the update @AndreaMoore. I'm a bit confused about the need for endorsement though, as https://www.isc2.org/Endorsement says "Please note: if you have passed the Certified in Cybersecurity exam, endorsement is not required." but your message suggests it might be?
This "endorsement process" is not like with our other certifications requiring work experience/endorsement from another member - but it does require you to accept Terms and Conditions and abide by the (ISC)2 Code of Ethics.
Thank you @AndreaMoore for the instruction on the next steps. I have passed the exam and it is September 1st so I have been trying to get myself endorsed but despite of several attempts an error always pops up saying "you must have passed the exam within 9 months" (which I did) and it is rejected.
