Winner: (ISC)2 for (ISC)2 Educational Programs
(ISC)2 offers a range of education opportunities for both its members and prospective members, all of which are based on the (ISC)2 CBK, a continuously updated taxonomy of information security topics essential to the profession.
For current members, (ISC)2 offers many opportunities to earn continuing professional education (CPE) credits to maintain certification, including one- and two-day conferences, seminars at industry events and online seminars – many of which are offered for free. For potential current members looking to add another certification, (ISC)2 offers Official CBK Review Seminars for the CISSP, CISSP concentrations, SSCP, CAP and CSSLP, in both classroom and eLearning environments. Whether taken in the classroom or online, all Review Seminars are taught by (ISC)2 authorized instructors, each of whom is up-to-date on the latest information security-related developments and is an expert in credential-specific domains. All (ISC)2 Review Seminars also feature post-seminar self-assessments.
In addition to real-world (ISC)2 CBK Review Seminars held throughout the world for prospective certification candidates, (ISC)2 offers Live OnLine CBK Review Seminars for the CISSP and two concentrations (the ISSAP and ISSMP), as well as the CSSLP. Accessible anywhere and virtually any time, Live OnLine allows busy professionals to take classes at their convenience while still having valuable interaction with a knowledgeable instructor. Delivered in two, separate two-hour sessions per week over the course of 10 weeks, Live OnLine includes up-to-date material, examples, illustrations and experiences from credentialed professionals, a real-world-based overview of the relevant areas of the information security field and a post-seminar self-assessment. During the live sessions, students can pose questions or comments to the instructor and receive immediate feedback or clarification. Live OnLine materials are archived and can be accessed at any time. Students can email their questions to the instructor anytime following the live session.
(ISC)2 continues to develop new programs using multiple delivery platforms to address issues within the industry – including free continuing professional education to its members in the form of one-day live events and half-day online seminars.
