As a CISSP-ISSAP and an HCISPP, the maintenance of my credentials through continuing professional education is one of the most important aspects of being an (ISC)2 certified information security professional. I’m sure you have the same understanding when it comes to the responsibility we share as professionals and (ISC)2 credential holders. We have the responsibility to stay up-to-date on the expanding body of knowledge in our field and to remain competitive through continuing professional education.

I want to let you know about changes in the renewal requirements to maintain your credential(s). Effective January 1, 2015, (ISC)² will make changes to the annual requirements; however, the changes will not affect the total number of Continuing Professional Education Credits (CPEs) required.

How will the changes affect you? Each certification will have annual and overall three-year CPE requirements that must be met in order to maintain the certification in good standing. Far too often we see members in their final year of the cycle struggling to earn a large number of CPEs even though they met the annual minimum number of CPEs. We believe that the changes will provide a clear direction and help members stay on track to avoid last minute scrambles to meet CPE and renewal deadlines. There will also be additional opportunities and ways to earn CPEs such as access to live educational events around the world, as well as online seminars, available exclusively to (ISC)² members.

I encourage you to find out more about the upcoming changes by visiting our website at: https://www.isc2.org/Certification-Maintenance-and-Requirements/default.aspx (login required). It is important to note that the annual and total certification renewal and CPE requirements will be duly enforced. I urge you to become familiar with the new policies.

Whether you are newly certified or a seasoned credential holder, maintaining your professional credential is essential for your career path. By growing and expanding your skills, competence and knowledge, you are making an investment in your career and increasing your value to your employer and customers.

If you have any questions about certification renewal requirements and CPEs, please do not hesitate to contact *****@isc2.org.

Best regards,

Director, Membership Relations and Services
