Do you happen to have the numbers. I would be really interested in seeing the number of people who lost their certification for this reason.
I have no idea, though I think with enough effort, ISC2 could do it. IIRC, there were 20 people in my seminar and 8 had expired certs. And fewer than 8 showed-up for celebratory booze afterward. Those that did show up said that the test is way harder than it used to be.
I think the CPE situation is what keeps the Webcast Industrial Complex in business. So many SANS webcasts for CPEs... 🙂 Since the cash infusion lead by Ron Gula, Cybrary.it's content has gotten pretty good, too, and is a good source for CPE time.
You also might consider courses at
- edX ... courses for free, certificates from 50 € ... e.g. "Cyber Security Economics" (10 weeks with 2-4h work per week)
- coursera ... "audit" courses for free, 33 € per month, if you want to have access to tests and get a certificate
There are many other online course providers you can choose from.
This thread is a good read. I recently passed the CISSP and I’m waiting for official approval. Understanding the CPE requirement is important as discussed by others. I appreciate the information!
