(ISC)² credential holders are required to earn Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits to remain a member in good standing. The CPE requirement is intended to ensure one maintains competencies following initial certification. By developing and enhancing skills through CPE activities, members are making an important investment in oneself and increasing one’s value to customers and employer’s alike.

  • All Access Pass (November 16 – 18) All Access Pass attendees will have access to upwards of 40 sessions by presenters from around the globe. Professional development sessions will provide actionable insights into a wide array of both technical and soft skills topics including Cloud Security, DevSecOps, Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC), Career Development, Privacy, workforce challenges and more.
  • Two-Day Pre-Conference Training (November 14 – 15) – This year’s two-day pre-conference training options include CISSP® Introduction and CCSP® Cloud Security. All pre-conference trainings will be held Saturday and Sunday.
  • By attending both the two-day pre-conference training followed by the three-day conference, up to 45 total CPEs can be earned dependent upon participation or content viewing times by attending live and on-demand sessions. Presentations will be recorded and available on-demand to registered attendees for one year after the conference.
  • To ensure CPE credits will automatically post to (ISC)² members’ accounts, they must include their (ISC)² member number upon initial registration. It will take approximately 5-10 business days post-event for (ISC)² to apply the earned CPE credits. Those who do not include their member ID number upon registering will need to manually submit their CPEs post-conference. In the event that duplicate entries are made, it is the member’s responsibility to remove the duplicate entry.
