I received a resume from a candidate claiming to possess some impressive security certifications, but it wasn't quite passing the "smell test." Among them were (ISC)² certifications. I actually received scanned copies of the certificates, but when I tried to validate them through the (ISC)² website Certification Verification I did not receive valid results.
Some of the other certifications (from other organizations) are not proving valid either.
In the interest of maintaining the integrity of the certifications, is there a point of contact to report potentially false claims and even forging of (ISC)² certificates?
Never had to this thankfully - I think that the Ethics Committee would deal with matters like this:
As a member in good standing, you could email:
Then ask for the procedure to report a fraudulent assertion of certification and possible counterfeit certificate. I would be very sure, but it sounds like there are a few issues here.
