Four Horsemen of the Infosec Apocalypse and the Freak Power Ticket

September 18, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

All of this will be tempered by what happens next for Dave and Chris. Will they be able to penetrate the old boy network? Will they be able to, once ensconced in the ISC(2) inner sanctum, make any kinds of change that would make the CISSP more meaningful? Time will tell my friends...

Four Days and Counting for (ISC)2 BoD Petitioners

September 13, 2012 Added by:Le Grecs

Official Statement on ISC2 and the Freak Power Ticket

August 26, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

Vote for the horsemen. If not me, then the others for a bigger point here. Those of you who take the ISC and CISSP seriously need to look at your org.

Your CISSP is Worthless - So Now What?

August 23, 2012 Added by:Dave Shackleford

OK, so it’s not really worthless. So what do I propose? I say scrap the whole thing. Start over.
