(ISC)² partners with Acclaim, a product of Pearson, to deliver a standardized way of digitally representing your certifications and accomplishments in a verified manner. As an (ISC)² member, you can claim your badge for the (ISC)² certification(s) you hold. The badge is represented by a digital image that contains verified metadata to describe qualifications and the processes required to earn it. Your digital badge serves as a way for you to have your certification achievements recognized and for employers to verify your qualifications.
To claim your badge, look for the recent email that we sent you. You can also go directly to Acclaim create an account using the email that is associated with your (ISC)² membership. Once your account is set up, you’ll be able to claim your badge. If you can’t find the email or need help, reach out to our team at email@example.com and we’ll be able to assist you.

Thanks for the information and links Beth @eparedes_214 - I got my badge setup!
Like @James I find the digital badges very convenient and easy to use.
I just added the hyperlinks to the image.
If you hover over the image click to the highlighted area (hyperlink), if not you just see the image.
This makes it handy for your CV or Resume PDF and can also be used in other communications like email.
These badges are a great feature! Someday maybe I'll work somewhere that doesn't reduce all emails to text-only....[insert sad face emoticon here]
You can also use the Acclaim badge links on your LinkedIn profile to provide direct verification of your certifications, allowing profile viewers to see immediate proof. If you don't like sharing your (ISC)² member number, the Acclaim verification does not require sharing it with those wanting to verify your certifications, unlike the verification page on the (ISC)² web site.
Now I'm waiting on my SSCP digital badge email, since I just received official notice this afternoon that my endorsement was successfully processed and I am now officially an SSCP!
Thanks for this useful information! Earning a new certification is a great thing, but being able to prove success is also an important matter and badges are so useful in this!
