Cyber professionals are more in demand than ever, with a widening gap in the cybersecurity workforce currently sitting at nearly four million professionals needed worldwide. It is our commitment to help grow the pipeline of qualified candidates needed to fill cyber jobs. To support this pledge, ISC2 is committed to providing one million free entry-level cybersecurity training and examinations and we are more than halfway to completing this goal! All you need to participate is a passion for cybersecurity.

The One Million in Cybersecurity program is now streamlined, making your ISC2 Certified in Cybersecurity (CC) closer than ever. The new examination registration process no longer requires a promotional code, just register as an ISC2 Candidate to gain access to both the training and exam. In addition to this faster registration, new participants can participate in the recently released adaptive training, which modifies the educational content to meet your specific needs.

Additional Candidate benefits include complimentary access to select ISC2 events, networking, discounts and more — all free for your first full year! After the first year, if you haven’t yet progressed to ISC2 membership, a U.S. $50 payment is required to maintain your Candidate status. This payment will be applied to the first-year annual maintenance fee (AMF) for those certified within a year of renewal.
