So my little certification card from ISC2 that I carry in my wallet expired on June 30, 2019. I inquired why I didn't get a new one when I recertified this year. I received an email that said "Please note we are no longer sending the physical certificate package for re-certified members beginning Feb. 2022 to support more sustainable and eco-conscious.
Upon recertification, you can access a digital certificate with your new cycle dates by logging into your member account. Please be advised that cost is $35 USD for a physical certificate"
This is RIDICULOUS. We spend $100 a year on certification fees, and they can't afford to send us a little card in the mail once every 3 years to prove we are in good standing. Now I have to go online and hunt for it every time my employer wants to see it or spend another $35 for it???
I'd much rather have them develop an (ISC)2 android/apple app that I could easily pull that info up on my phone. Just like a digital business card app where they could scan the QR code to see your certs and member number. Most car insurance companies have the feature of downloading a digital copy of your car insurance as well. That's where I'd focus my resources.

Why have each vendor make an app of their own? This is exactly what Credly / Accredible is for.
For example, here's my profile: https://www.credly.com/users/t-sluijter/badges
That site provides proof for many of my industry certifications, all in one spot. It's trustworthy, it's vendor agnostic.
