"As a security professional, I value the relationships I have built with other professionals through my involvement with EDUCAUSE, particularly the mentor program. Participating in the program, as either a mentor or a protégé, at the yearly Security Professionals Conference is a great way to collaborate, share expertise, and develop your own personal network of colleagues."

Cheryl Washington, Chief Information Security Officer, University of California, Davis

CPE Credit

EDUCAUSE recognizes that participation in HEISC activities and projects may be considered continuing professional education (CPE) credit-earning activities for a number of industry security certifications (e.g., CISSP, CRISC, CISM, CIPP, etc.). To that end, the EDUCAUSE Cybersecurity Program has developed HEISC volunteer CPE guidelines to help volunteers claim CPE credit related to their HEISC participation.
