And I want to add, so there's no misunderstanding, that the quality and value I am looking for in examining a security topic is more of a deeper dive, which is why I prefer taking on site courses. I would like to engage with an expert in whatever my particular area of focus at that time might be. While a webinar or video presentation certainly has value, there is little ability to examine in detail how the topic relates to the security circumstances at my organization. That is important to me. Thanks for considering my clarification and thank you to those who are endeavoring to present new ideas through Brighttalk. It is appreciated.
I don't go the low cost route in earning CPEs....there's no time for that.
The amusing part is that time is the motivating factor for both of us. Since a CPE represents 1 hour of educational effort, we will both spend 40 hours a year in an educational setting.
You view travel, hotels and a classroom setting as more time-efficient because you can knock the requirement out in one week. I view that as spending 120 hours to earn what I could have done in 40, an hour at a time after the kids have gone to bed.
For more "depth", you might additionally consider Cybrary. They do not auto-submit but they do have a "completion certificate" which is a great defense in an audit.
Another two weeks gone - any update yet? I've currently no way to view or manage my CPE's which is becoming a bit of a pain. I'd be happy if there was at least a way for me to review current CPE's.
