Hi isc2jade,

 

thanks for the clear welcome message.

The reading material hidden behind the links will keep me busy for a while.

Could you please explain to me the meaning of the earned badge received for joing this community as an early adopter?

Thanks in advance for your kind response.

 

Regards,

drBob.

Hello! 

 

The Early Adopter badge is only available to those who join the Community before November 3. It's a way to recognize those who got in "on the ground level" so to speak. Just a little recognition for joining Smiley Happy

How does earning the badge really help the recipient?

Re: Welcome to the (ISC)² Community!

Hi!

Some of the badges are rewards for activity - like the 2018 badge, or those for giving kudos - and they're just to recognize those that are active here on the Community.

Other badges represent the certs you have, or you can earn them for professional activities like nominating someone for an (ISC)² Information Security Leadership Award or speaking at Security Congress.

I hope this helps!
