[After Jack's] new cycle begins,... he happens to be selected for an audit, and it's found that he falls short of the CPE cycle requirements. 

Regarding hypothetical Jack, this can happen even independent of the portal's shortcomings.  This border case ought to be spelled out in  the handbook.  My recommendation is that if one were to posthumously fail an audit, they be granted a 90 day grace period to "re-earn" the necessary CPEs, mimicking the timing for other portions of the audit process.

 

That said, hypothetical Jack can completely and efficiently avoid the problem by leveraging the rollover process.  CPEs earned beyond the required 120 are rolled into your next cycle (see page 11 of the handbook for important limits).  Had Jack recorded 130, The extra 10 would have covered his audit-loss. If not needed, they become a head-start on the next cycle.

The way I see it, the portal issues are a root cause here. I've seen CPEs get duplicated automatically and reported this to membersupport@isc2.org, who asked me to delete them manually. Finding them required tracking the CPEs --- an arduous task, thanks to the issues I mentioned earlier.

 

(ISC)2 can provide a grace period to re-earn the CPEs, as you recommended, but it would be a corrective action, so it won't suffice. A preventive action that addresses the portal issues is ultimately needed...

Thank you again for your thoughts and input.

Without question, decreased reporting visibility makes it much more arduous.  However, duplicate CPE entries have been an issue since long before the new portal was released. 

 

I suggest that the typical root cause is that the "submitted on behalf" process takes too long.  Oftentimes, members manually submit, believing that the process failed only to later discover that it was simply delayed.  With today's technology, we tend to expect that such actions are performed "real-time", not batched up for processing days later.

Given that there are many reasons for failing audit (e.g. the topic might not be applicable to the credential) and that any reason could cause a failure after the cycle has closed, I do feel there needs to be a defined/published process for rectifying posthumous audit failures.

Dear Beth @eparedes_214,

 

 

The support from membersupport@isc2.org has been adequate, but I'd rather not have to ask for it so often.

 

Anyways, if their response isn't satisfactory, I will contact you. Thanks.

I agree. Hopefully they have a process in place to deal with this, and if yes, publishing it will provide members with a good deal of assurance.

I've been involved as a volunteer with (ISC)2 for many years, first as a member of the North American Advisory Board, and now I'm in the middle of my second term as a board member.

Greg,

Thank you. This is great that you and David @david-shearerboth are engaging here.  Solid information and good perspective. 

Many of us hope to see continued involvement of officers and board here, just as you describe.

 

Oh, and be aware that communication of board members and candidates is a rising topic over in the BoD Election group.

 

Best regards, and thanks, again.

Thanks Craigin! Communication is something that I think will always be a focus area because it's such a personal thing. We all consume information in different ways and we all have different strengths regarding our ability to convey a message. I am glad though that through forums like this we can engage in constructive dialogue! Cheers! Greg
