    As those interested in or preparing for the CAP certification, we are informing you that effective February 15, 2023, the certification will be known as the Certified in Governance, Risk and Compliance or CGRC. This name change better represents the knowledge, skills and abilities required to earn and maintain this certification as the content reaches beyond authorization. The exam and course content will not change, nor will the experience requirements for the certification.

    You can learn more about the last exam refresh, which occurred in 2021 on our blog.

    If you plan to sit for the exam on or before February 14, 2023, you will register for the CAP exam. Starting January 1, 2023, you can register to take the CGRC exam on or after February 15, 2023.

    You can take the next step to launch your cybersecurity career by logging into your Pearson VUE account to register for your exam

    If you have further questions, refer to the CAP to CGRC FAQ page.

    The next corporate director competency that the SEC is now transforming is boardroom cyber expertise.

    The SEC recently proposed new rules that would require U.S. public company boardroom disclosure of corporate directors with cybersecurity expertise. This is currently a relatively rare skillset within the ranks of most corporate boards, not just in the U.S. but worldwide.
