TEC 2020 offers loads of domain-related CPEs
To maintain your certification, you need to show you’re staying up to date on the latest in security IT by attending conferences, educational courses, seminars or presentations.
CISSPs need around 40 CPEs per year, 30 of which need to be domain-related (Group A) and an additional 10 can be professional development knowledge sharing. At the end of a three year period, a CISSP must have submitted 120 CPEs.
TEC 2020 has many domain-related (Group A) CPE sessions and additional Group B CPE sessions. You can view the full agenda here, but basically the entire Hybrid Active Directory Security track (8 sessions), at least half of the Office 365 track (4 sessions+) and the Day 1 Keynote are Group A CPE-eligible sessions.
Here are just a few of those Group A CPE sessions:
· Keynote on November 17 – 1 Group A CPE
- Understanding the Enterprise Attack Surfaceby David Kennedy, Founder & CEO of TrustedSEC. David has released security advisories, including zero-days, all while contributing as a subject matter expert on Fox News, CNN, BBC, and other high-profile media outlets. At TEC 2020, David’s 60-minute keynote will dive into the various attack techniques used to compromise Active Directory and how to design your org to combat these threats.

Need security certification CPEs? Yeah, Randy’s session on hybrid AD has you covered.
- Hybrid Cloud Securitywith 1-of-a-100 Microsoft Certified Master Sean Metcalf. He writes extensively about AD Security and presents the kinds of slides people take pictures of because he goes deep on building out a secure hybrid Microsoft environment.

You’ll understand these new application models and how they can be abused for sustained persistence, how these permissions work and what overprivileged looks like, and finally, how to find them in your environment.

- Protecting Office 365 with Azure AD Conditional Access with Azure AD security expert, Brian Desmond. In this session you’ll learn how the conditional access engine in Azure AD works. We will walk through creating conditional access policies for common scenarios and review how to troubleshoot them when something goes wrong.
- Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection Deep Dive with Microsoft Security vMVP Susan Bradley. In this session we’ll do a deep dive on configuration mistakes that can lead to more attacks, and how you can investigate how you are getting attacked to better protect your organization.
