Does anyone know if the CAP exam will be updated to match the NIST 800-37 r2 release. There are major changes and so an exam update is called for. Just curious when and if that will happen.
All of our exam items go through rigorous review and validation. Any item that may have referenced the old version will have either been verified with the new, or returned for further work through our item development process to update it accordingly. One of our standards for item writing is to use current, valid sources. Superseded sources are on the "bad" list, and must not be used.
I hope this answers your question.
Thanks for your great reply. While I know that you keep the exam updated in the most professional manner, I was more interested in knowing timing of updates. I am prepping for the CAP exam and with the changes to NIST 800-37r2 I was wondering how I should be studying is all. It a timing issue. Thanks for responding.
The new CAP exam outline took effect this month. One of the differences between the old outline and the new is a more concentrated focus on privacy controls which is one of the major changes with the latest version of NIST SP 800-37. I would say the answer is yes.
