I understand why ISC2 have deleted online exam for upper certification like CISSP. But, why CC can't be passed online proctored?
It's an entry-level certification, and according to your initiative "One million Certified in Cybersecurity" it can help to achieve this goal.
How can you ask people to drive 3 to 4 hours for an entrance exam, when Cisco for exemple provide online proctored exam? I will drive up to 12h for the CISSP, no problem, but not for CC...
I'm a former in cybersecurity and I told my students to sign up for CC study, but unfortunately, I can't ask them to pass the exam, as the nearest exam center is at ... Geneva! We live in the south of France...
This is disappointing, as it automatically rules out the possibility of certification for beginners.
I think that the problem isn’t with the level of the certification, so much as the method of delivery being too open to cheating or just basically not secure enough, ISC2 found it wasn’t good enough for them - CISCO I guess felt it was, both orgs have ISO-17024 accreditation for their certifications. Maybe Cisco candidates are more ethical overall…? 🙂
I’d also point out that if one certification was considered to be cheatable the it would damage the ISC2 brand quite severely.
