CPE Policy Updates

The following clarifications and changes to the ISACA certification CPE policies have been made.   These modifications were approved by the Credentialing and Career Management Board and went into effect 1 January 2013.  They are universal and apply equally to all ISACA certifications.

  1. Reconsideration and Appeal: Individuals whose certification has been revoked due to noncompliance with the CPE policy and who later appeal for reinstatement may incur an additional reinstatement fee of US $50. This reinstatement fee is effective for those reinstated after 1 January 2013 (when the revocation had been outstanding more than 60 days) and is in addition to any back or current certification maintenance fees needed to bring the certified individual in compliance with the CPE policy.
  2. Calculating CPE Hours: CPEs can be reported in quarter hour increments. One CPE hour is earned for each fifty (50) minutes of active participation (excluding lunches and breaks) for qualifying ISACA and non-ISACA professional educational activities and meetings. CPE hours can be earned in quarter hour increments and can also be reported in quarter hours (rounded to the nearest quarter hour).
  3. Exam question development and review (no limit): For those serving on an ISACA committee/task force that is responsible for exam question review, evidence of actual hours for the formal item review process will be provided.
  4. Contributions to the profession (20-hour annual limit): CPE hours are earned for the actual number of hours contributed.

Call For Papers: SSR 2015

                    Call for Papers (SSR 2015)

          SSR 2015: 2nd International conference on Security
                       Standardisation Research

              15th-16th December 2015, Tokyo, Japan
                        http://ssr2015.com


Background

Over the last two decades a very wide range of standards have been developed covering a wide range of aspects of cyber security. These documents have been published by national and international formal standardisation bodies, as well as by industry consortia. Many of these standards have become very widely used - to take just one example, the ISO/IEC 27000 series has become the internationally adopted basis for managing corporate information security.

Despite their wide use, there will always be a need to revise existing security standards and to add new standards to cover new domains. The purpose of this conference is to discuss the many research problems deriving from studies of existing standards, the development of revisions to existing standards, and the exploration of completely new areas of standardisation. Indeed, many security standards bodies are only beginning to address the issue of transparency, so that the process of selecting security techniques for standardisation can be seen to be as scientific and unbiased as possible.
Conference scope

This conference is intended to cover the full spectrum of research on security standardisation, including, but not restricted to, work on cryptographic techniques (including ANSI, IEEE, IETF, ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 27, ITU-T and NIST), security management, security evaluation criteria, network security, privacy and identity management, smart cards and RFID tags, biometrics, security modules, and industry-specific security standards (e.g. those produced by the payments, telecommunications and computing industries for such things as payment protocols, mobile telephony and trusted computing).

New CPE Reporting System

A new means of collecting CPE hours online will be introduced that changes the way certification holders report CPE hours. Attached is an overview of the new system, which is being provided to give you a first-hand view of what it looks like and how it will work.
