  • Frequently Asked Questions Frequently Asked Questions

    Do I have to be a member of (ISC)² in order to join an (ISC)² Chapter?


    You must be an (ISC)² member to start a chapter. However, once the chartering chapter has received its charter and becomes an official chapter of (ISC)², then non-(ISC)² certified professionals can join an (ISC)² Chapter. Check with the local chapter to confirm.



    If I’m a member of (ISC)², am I automatically a member of my local chapter?


    No. (ISC)² members are not required to join an (ISC)² Chapter. If you are interested in joining a chapter, then you will need to contact the local chapter for details. Visit the (ISC)² Chapter Directory for contact information.



    If I belong to a chapter does that mean I am a member of (ISC)²?


    No. All (ISC)² members must pass one of the (ISC)² credential exams and complete the endorsement process to become a member. Once an individual is a member of (ISC)², they must maintain their certification in order to remain in good-standing.



    What is the difference between an (ISC)² member and an (ISC)² Chapter member?


    An (ISC)² member has taken and passed one of the (ISC)² credential exams and has completed the endorsement process. Only professionals who hold an (ISC)² credential are a member of (ISC)². (ISC)² Chapter members consist of both (ISC)² credential holders and those who do not have an (ISC)² credential.



    How many CPEs can I earn for joining a chapter?


    Members do not earn CPEs for joining a chapter; however, members can earn one CPE per hour for each hour attending a meeting based on information security topics.



    How do I find a chapter to join?


    The (ISC)² Chapter Directory is available on the (ISC)² website at  



    What is the membership fee for an (ISC)² Chapter?


    Each chapter establishes and imposes chapter dues for its members. Dues are not collected by (ISC)².



    What does an (ISC)² Chapter do?


    (ISC)² Chapters provide (ISC)² members and other information security professionals in the local community an opportunity to build a local network of peers to share knowledge, exchange ideas and earn CPEs.



    How can I find out when chapter meetings are held?


    Contact a chapter directly to find out the chapter’s schedule of events. To find a chapter near you, visit the (ISC)² Chapter Directory.
