Re: Your new annual membership Fee is now $125! How do you feel about that?

Financials are available in the annual report which is available on the (ISC)2 website. The 2018 is due soon, but you can view last years which breaks this down.

I tend to disagree with that assessment.  The value of the certification received from ISC2 has decreased as the criteria for obtaining the cert has been drastically minimized - so I don't see how the statement of the ROI being worth the dramatic increase is valid.  I didn't get certified to have access to educational resources that are available just about anywhere else - I got certified because it used to be a very real demonstration of your abilities and experience as a Information Security Professional.  Now they are just a dime a dozen (all you have to do now is pass the test).

For the same reasons I previously noted about our "power," I very much doubt
that anyone will pay to mount a legal challenge.

However, I am seeing a large number of messages from people who are simply
going to drop the cert. I suspect that there will soon be a number of people
claiming "passed the CISSP exam, but didn't maintain the cert" on resumes.

Which reminds me. I am old enough to recall the days when training really *was*
free: when ISC2 held events (mini-one-day conferences) in various places that
were free for ISC2 members/cert holders to attend. Now, as you say, it is all just
another revenue-generating stream.

(Yes, I know that the Webinars are still free--so far. And I also know how little
value they provide. Other than CPEs.)
