CPEs, or Continuing Professional Education credits, are credits that information security professionals can earn through various means, such as attending conferences, formal education, or practical training.

These credits are required ISC(2), or the Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (as well as some other organizations) as a way to maintain certifications or credentials and to ensure that members stay current with the latest developments in their field.

ISC(2) members who have earned a certification such as the CISSP are required to earn CPEs to keep their certification in good standing.

We offer automatic CPE Credit Submission to ISC(2) to our subscribers. Below can be seen the rubric for how CPEs are awarded.
