Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Credits

RSAC 2020 APJ attendees who are GIAC or (ISC)2 members can earn CPE Credits. RSA Conference will provide you with a digital certificate for each track session watched live or on demand. Please be sure to download your certificate of completion before the session ends, starting at the 20 minute mark. After the session closes, the certificate will no longer be available.

GIAC members can earn up to 24 CPE Credits (updated on 8/6/20):

  • Earn up to 18 CPEs* for attending live sessions and/or viewing on demand
  • Earn 6 CPEs for participating in the SANS Core NetWars Tournament 6

To receive credits, GIAC members should send completed session certificates in a single submission to GIAC via the Certification Renewal process. For the SANS Core NetWars Tournament, GIAC members should submit as a ‘Cyber Range’ submission, separate from your submission for Conference sessions.
*1 CPE is awarded for every 2 sessions attended. Completion of 36 sessions is required to earn all 18 CPEs. 

(ISC)2 members can earn up to 31 CPE Credits:

  • Earn 1 CPE Credit for every 2 track sessions watched live or on demand, totaling up to 31 credits (if all 62 sessions are attended/watched)
  • Earn 1 CPE Credit for each hour of participation in any of the Capture the Flag events

To receive credits, (ISC)2 members should self-report.

IAPP members can earn up to 3 CPE Credits for attending sessions within the Identity & Privacy track:
