Has consideration been made towards producing a CISSP challenge coin that would only be available to CISSPs in good standing? Here are a bunch of samples for inspiration. It would complement the lapel pin and digital badge programs.
Isn't that the CISSP digital badge or lapel pin does already?
I'm also not sure the military overtones fit in so well with inclusivity - personally I like them, was in and would love to talk about my 'march and shoot' medal, but I have seen and experienced less enthusiasm lower others in others*.
I would also caution against badge creep and wouldn't want to pre-empt decertification due to not meeting requirements want to detract from simple online verification:
* The fools, until the joys of yomping 20 miles, whilst carrying 40 kilos after 10 pints the night before with shouty men have been experienced, they just haven't lived. I was never shot at, but I'm very sure that's fun too...
I concur and have asked ISC2 repeatedly in 2016 & 2017 about the possibility of introducing a CISSP challenge coin for member in good standing. I have not heard any reply and support the question posted in February 2018 making the suggestion. A challenge coin would be on display about the status of an ISC2 member vs. the lapel pin that is never worn in an office setting that I have ever encountered, even amongst fellow CISSP's. Just my opinion of course, but I support the idea of creating an ISC2 CISSP challenge coin.
