Our mission at RSA Conference is to provide programs that help ensure cybersecurity practitioners around the world get the knowledge they need to spur professional growth and protect their organizations from cyberthreats.

We will be partnering with the following organizations at RSAC 2021 to offer Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Credits to our attendees. Credits vary by association, as do submission details.

Use these tips to make sure you get yours:

  • Indicate your affiliation during registration
    When registering for RSA Conference, you will be asked to indicate the association(s) you are affiliated with. For our education partners like (ISC)and GIAC, it’s important that you list your member identification number in order to receive credits.

  • Attend your selected sessions
    We will provide a report to you of all sessions viewed within the RSA Conference 2021 Virtual Environment. The sessions that you can earn credits with, as well as how many credits you will earn, vary by association. For sessions hosted by industry organizations, your information will be shared with the association by RSAC so that they may give you proper credit if you are a member. For all others, you will need to self-report.

  • Submit your Virtual Environment Report to your Association(s)
    Your report with a listing of all sessions attended can be downloaded from your dashboard within the RSAC 2021 Virtual Environment. Submit any required documentation to the association(s) you belong to in order to receive your credits. The credits will vary by association.

  • Follow up with the associations to ensure you receive your credits
    The timeframe for credits to be given varies by association. We recommend following up within 30 days of submitting your documentation.
