How do Employers Verify Member Certifications?

How do employers verify claims of (ISC)2 certification at the isc2.org web site?

The old site had a page to query using a claimant's first and last names and (ISC)2 member number. 

I have searched all over the new site and find absolutely no information on how to confirm that someone holds a current certification.

 

Please do not respond that certified members should provide the employer with a copy of their digital certificate or Acclaim badge. In keeping with proper direct verification from the certification organization, the employer needs to be able to communicate directly with (ISC)2 for verification, with no intermediate step through the claimant.

 

Thank you.

Re: How do Employers Verify Member Certifications?

@CraginS Thank you for your inquiry. The  Certification Verification tool is located under the "Certifications" tab at the top of the (ISC)² website. This tool requires a last name and the member ID number in order to verify ones membership.

@amandavanceISC2

 AH, spotted it. Thank you

By the way, when I looked for it, I searched the site for the word "verify" and that page did not appear. in the first three pages of results.

 

Now that I know about the link, I searched the site also for "verification."  Again, that page does not appear in that search, either.

It's the same page we use for the CISSPforum confirmations.  We started using it back in the day to try and keep LinkeDin verifications off the list.  (Of course, we also allow old CISSPs, but that relies on the memories of the moderators--always an iffy proposition  🙂

@CraginS Thank you for bringing that to my attention. I will get with our team to see if we can get the search engine to populate for the Certification Verification tool!
