  1. Live Events: All (ISC)2 members who attend a SearchSecurity.com or Information Security seminar have the opportunity to earn 1 CPE credit for each hour of expert instruction. Please note: CPE credit applications will be sent to attendees through post-event emails. 
  2. Information Security magazine: Readers of Information Security magazine who successfully complete a brief 10-15 question quiz with a score of 70% or higher will receive 5 CPE credits. Please note: Our current agreement with (ISC)2 only allows for the 5 CPE credits to be earned from Information Security magazine once per calendar year. Prior to downloading your Information Security magazine to your desktop, the rotating window to the right of the PDF houses the associated CPE quiz (you may need to wait for a few slides to pass before the CPE credit slide appears - but please note that the quiz expires at the end of each issue's designated month).Once you complete the quiz and pass with a 70% or better, you can self-report your 5 CPE credits with (ISC)2. At the end of each month, we will issue you a Certificate of Completion to be used for auditing purposes, should you need to verify your self-reported CPE credits with (ISC)2.
