Free security seminars filled to capacity.

ISC Squared : 17 October, 2007  (Company News)
Free eSymposia and live seminars offered to (ISC)2 members during the Autumn proved to be extremely popular.
ISC squared has reported the early success of the newest benefit it's offering to its certified members: free educational security events.

Response from (ISC)2 members to the free live and online events, part of the (ISC)2 Security Leadership Series, has been overwhelmingly positive, with all the autumn one-day live events booked to capacity and the initial two online seminars attracting attendees in the thousands.

The (ISC)2 Security Leadership Series, which provides information security professionals key knowledge on emerging security issues from leading industry experts and interaction with their peers, is comprised of bi-monthly, half-day online (ISC)2 e-Symposia, available exclusively to (ISC)2 members, and multiple- and one-day in-person events. Earlier this summer, (ISC)2 announced that its one-day live and e-Symposia events would be offered at no cost to its 50,000-plus members worldwide. Since making the announcement, (ISC)2 hosted a full-to-capacity seminar in Dusseldorf, its first in Germany, and a workshop in London, while 11 percent of the members residing in the EMEA region attended the online e-Symposia.

"We believe strongly in offering our members meaningful benefits that help them in their daily jobs and throughout their careers," said Ed Zeitler, CISSP, executive director for (ISC)2. "Feedback from our members told us that less expensive, convenient professional educational opportunities were a top priority for them. We're proud to be able provide them access to these seminars while removing the costs to them or their employers."

Open to all information security professionals, the Security Leadership Series offers employers a vehicle to ensure that their information security staff is staying abreast of key evolutions in information security best practice. The series also provides significant opportunities for obtaining continuing professional education (CPEs) to (ISC)2 -certified members, who must earn CPE credits to maintain their certifications.

(ISC)2 members who miss an e-Symposium seminar can take advantage of the archived event and complete a quiz to earn CPE credits, available 72 hours after it concludes. The archive will remain active as long as the topic is relevant and useful. Three eSymposium events remain for 2007. Registration for the forthcoming e-Symposium seminar on "Nothing to Fear - Threat Management" scheduled for 18 Oct. 2007 is still open.
