Re: Staying Certified

When I got my SSCP in March 2017, I was worried about getting all 20-type of CPE.... now I am in November, and I have 70 A CPE...

 

Dontvworry, keep learning and record each activity as soon as finished. This way, it is always going up.

Re: Staying Certified

Courses, conferences, chapter meetings, and vendor presentations are all great. However, I recommend setting a practice of watching or listening to one free Type A webinar or podcast a week, which will absolutely guaranty you meet your minimum 40 CPE per year, with room to spare. Use the courses, conferences, and chapter meetings as networking & educational gravy, and the vendor presentations for free meals (literally!). 

 

If you claim you cannot devote an hour a week to online professional education, you should re-think your commitment to the concept of professional.

 

There are innumerable top notch, high value, free resources for podcasts and webinars, including (ISC)2, ISSA, SANS, OWASP, CMU SEI-CERT, etc.

Re: Staying Certified

My understanding is CPEs cannot be used in multiple certs. I hope to add csslp to my cissp and ccsp (70 CPE/year) soon. So probably 100 CPEs per year.
I believe CPE earned can only apply to 1 cert at a time. Once you get 4+ certs that can be a lot of A and B CPEs

Re: Staying Certified

Hi PCooke2002,

 

When I obtained my second ISC2 certification I was worried about that too, however straight from the official guidelines ((ISC)² CPE Policies & Guidelines (rev 10, April 21, 2015), p.15):

 

"

Multiple Credentials

If a member holds more than one (ISC)² credential, the CPEs he/she submits will automatically be counted toward all of his/ her active credentials. Members should not enter CPE activities in their record (member database) more than one time.

The member should select ‘Multiple Domains for his/ her CPE submission when submitting Group A credits. The CPE credits will be applied as Group A credits to each credential when the member holds multiple credentials.

"

 

So (thankfully, and logically really) any Continuing Professional Education in a security related field counts as a CPE for all your certifications.  So you can go nuts and obtain dozens of them! ;-)

Re: Staying Certified

Hi Jared
When I submit new CPEs they are only added to 1 of my certs. I may be doing it wrong

Re: Staying Certified

Hi Pcooke2002,

 

The CPEs count towards all certifications that have that domain. I have my CISSP and HCISPP. If I do a purely healthcare CPE, it wouldn't count towards my CISSP and If I do a Security Engineering CPE it doesn't count towards my HCISPP. However there are many overlapping domains, and The InfoSec magazine ones count for all certs as a type A.

Re: Staying Certified

Hello Stu1

"The CPEs register automatically after a few days, if you've added your ISC member number to the BrightTalk website."

I have not seen a place in BrightTalk where you can put you ISC² ID for CPE automatic registering. I have called BrighTalk support, and they have told me that they do not take care of CPE, but it is up to the organizer of the webinar to manage this.

I do not know how I can get CPE credential. Could you tell me more in detail what you have done ?

Thks very much

Re: Staying Certified

Hi Stephane

 

Sorry, I wasn't clear. When you register for the webinar itself on the brighttalk website, some of the webinars prompt you to enter your ISC number during registration. I don't believe there's anywhere to enter it under your Brightalk profile and have it automatically applied to all the webinars you watch. I've noticed the CPE tracking is a bit hit or miss, the webinars hosted by ISC2 generally track automatically, but webinars by other vendors do not always track, and you have to enter those manually on the ISC2 website.

 

Hope that helps

Re: Staying Certified

Back when CPEs were expensive and hard to find, it was a struggle to keep up. At one point (years ago), I considered letting it lapse because my company didn't care about it. I had to pay for everything myself. The only reason I kept at it was the terror of taking that exam again. Thank goodness that it is easier to find CPE material and report the CPEs. I learn just as much with continuing education, but the process of keeping my CISSP current is so much easier now.
