(ISC)² Lending Library
More opportunities for you to earn CPEs
Did you realize that you can earn 5 CPEs by reading a book and writing a 250-word description? That's only one page (of double-spaced text)! Learn more about earning CPEs.
At our most recent board meeting, a motion was passed to establish the first (ISC)² USMG Chapter Lending Library. This library will start out with 10 curated titles relating to information security and will initially be housed in the Gray Cyber Center (home of the RCC-E) on Clay Kaserne.
Why are you doing this?
We are always looking for ways to add value to your membership! This provides an engaging, self-paced method to earn CPEs and encourage life-long learning.
How can I borrow a book?
We will make every effort to have at least some titles available at every chapter event. Additionally, members who work on Clay can email to arrange a time to visit the RCC-E as a visitor and select a title. Our Chapter Librarian is CPT Andre Powell and you can reach him at DSN 565-6118 to reserve a book or arrange pick-up/drop-off.
HINT: CPT Powell is earning CPEs by volunteering for the chapter. Do you want additional CPEs? Contact us to learn how we can help each other.
We need your book donations!
If you're like us, you probably have large piles of IT books you read exactly once and will never read again. Consider donating them to our library effort and let others read them for the very first time (and clean out your office in the same go).
What kind of books are you looking for?
Anything with a nexus to one of the (ISC)² CBK domains. Specific technology areas, security concepts, or even biographies/non-fiction (e.g. a biography of the first CYBERCOM director or a chronology of STUXNET).
Can I get a tax write-off if I donate?
Unfortunately. we are not able to offer donation receipts at this time. However, you will get much better sleep at night knowing your books went to a great cause.
