In "Good Standing"

Upon certification, (ISC)² members may use their designations (CISSP, SSCP, etc.), subject to (ISC)² Logo Guidelines – as long as their certification remains in "good standing." To remain in good standing, members must:

  • Abide by the (ISC)² Code of Ethics;
  • Submit Annual Maintenance Fees (AMFs) upon receipt of annual invoices; and,
  • Obtain and submit the required Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits.

Members in "good standing" have the right to elect (ISC)² directors, attend (ISC)²’s annual meeting, volunteer for various committees and activities, provide endorsement of a candidate for (ISC)² certification, and participate in other important functions of (ISC)². I agree to inform (ISC)², without delay, of matters that affect my ability to continue to fulfill the certification requirements and remain in good standing including, but not limited to, a violation of the (ISC)² Code of Ethics.
