CISSP CPE's

So as alot of the members here have there CISSP's I wanted to know what you do to get your CPE requirements?

I currently go to and speak at Security Cons but I wanted to know what others do. Also do you feel watching Videos of recent Security Cons would count for CPE's and if not what if the Con is running the talks via streaming media would it count then as attending.

Let me know what you guys/gals think.

Cheers,

Brian,

I am currently taking security-related college classes.  Before then, I would watch security con videos, read books and publications, and go to training as funding and time permitted.

Re: CISSP CPE's

The majority of my CPEs has come from studying for other certifications.  I all ready made all my CPEs for my recertification in a year, but they have the silly requirement of a minimum of 20 credits a year.  My CPEs have mainly come from studying for other certifications, CEH, GCIH, and now GCIA.  Unfortunately, my GCIA training is in December, so it does not count next year, but any reading or other prep I do will count.  I also attend local security groups (ISSA and IfraGard), listen to the odd podcast here and there, and attend conferences.  I am also lucky, my mentor at work hosts a lunch and learn security forum twice a week.

You can also pick-up a few easy CPEs by subscribing to magazines like Information Week, or reading the ISC2 magazine and taking their test.. (or something like that).

Re: CISSP CPE's

Try the webcasts from SANs, which are excellent

http://www.sans.org/webcasts/archive.php

and from Steve Gibsons Twit TV security webcasts

http://twit.tv/sn1?page=0%2C0%2C14

Between the two, you can get hundreds of hours of free CPE and new ones each week! I frequently play them over my stereo at home.

I just finished the second year of my second three year cycle.

Another inexpensive source is "Toastmasters International". The weekly meetings are "Group B" credits, but any time you spend preping for security speeches are "Group A" credits.
Toastmasters is helpful in opening up your ability to talk to groups, and your ability to give meaningful, organised responses in meetings. I highly recommnd it.

Re: CISSP CPE's

There is so much to learn in this field that supports the CISSP cpe's - to many people - taking more classes/certs seems to be the best course of action - it takes care of your cpe's and you learn more.

Re: CISSP CPE's

don't forget about ISC2 monthly webcasts which qualifies for 3 CPEs, that's 36 CPE per year for which you pay anyway during yearly certification fee.
And as others already mentioned, there are many other ways of earning CPEs, like infosecurity magazine websites.
Security+, OSCP, CISM, CISSP
