Email us at FISSEA [at] nist.gov (FISSEA[at]nist[dot]gov) to express your interest in joining the Planning Committee. Interested participants will be invited to a Planning Committee meeting to introduce themselves to the group and observe the meeting to understand Planning Committee expectations. If the interested participant is qualified, is interested and there are no objections from the existing members, they will be added to the Planning Committee.
FISSEA will offer a downloadable form that is a voluntary, self-attestation of attendance and does not guarantee CEUs. It is up to the certifying body to approve the CEUs. However, previous attendees have used their attendance and form to qualify for CEUs for industry credentials such as CISSP and CEH.
