    If you need to catch up on CPE points, here is one method.


    2 pt for each magazine read and quiz-ed on.  


    Past Issues of InfoSecurity Professional Magazine| Archive | (ISC)² 







    The above quiz links will take you to another site.  A partner of ISC.

    - Sign up for their account.

    - Ensure you enter your ISC Account #, to have the quiz counted for CPE credits.





    Select the ISC Magazine Quizes



    And now you are ready to take the quiz.



    In the latest May/June 2018 magazine, there is a section that mentions this process:

    - States that five (5) days are needed for this to be auto-synced for your account.

    - No need to copy the certificate from the partner website, to the ISC website.




    The partner site will retain your certificates as well.




    If you click on "View Your Certificate", you will get the following:

    I'd also recommend listening to Security related Pod Casts (i.e. GRC | Security Now! Pod Casts)

    Listening to Security related Pod Casts is also counted towards the credit ?

    One CPE point per podcast hour, in increments of 0.25.  I recommend pulling the show notes to add into the CPE submission, so that you have a way to refresh your memory if the submission gets audited.

    Yes.  That’s what I’ve been doing.

    This is how I get most of my CPE credits.


    I cannot recommend the Risky Business podcast enough.  It is sponsored, but Patrick is diligent to let you know when he's talking to a sponsor vs. a featured guest.  It is the most informative infosec podcast I've found so far.  He occasionally also has "soap box" and "snake oil" episodes, in which he invites companies to do a more direct sales-type presentation, but even those are useful as he often redirects the information they present back at them for clarification.  Even if you don't listen to the interviews, the news segment is worth every second of your time.
