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

The same "good 'ol boys/girls" keep returning time and time again. When their terms are up, they "sit out a year" and then the next board nominates them as one of the BoD-recommended candidates. Keeping the same old board will result in a certification that continues to be disconnected...

Scot Terban ISC(2) Board Petition UPDATE

September 05, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

It seems that when one “petitions” to run for the board, one must have the signatories send an email instead of just fill out their information on some excel sheet or online petition. If you are wanting to sign the petition for my being able to run for the BoD please email me...

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. Do you think that any with this certification are good at what we do because we took a test and adhere to some ethics rules the board ignores when they see fit?

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. Build a cert and program that tests fundamental skills and means something to employers who really need things done. Offer existing cert holders one year and a free test to get the new one. Otherwise, they’re out...

Scot Terban ISC2 Board Candidacy

August 23, 2012 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

Ok, so after a flurry of tweets about the candidacy of others, my name got thrown in there like so much pasta being chucked at a wall. Well, it stuck in my case and I decided to run. So, if you think that I can get in there and stir up some trouble, and maybe make some changes then VOTE FOR ME in this petition...

CISSP Certification, Information Security and Risk Management

February 23, 2012 Added by:Javvad Malik

The ISC2 promote it as the premier security certification in the world and have you believe that with a CISSP comes great knowledge, power, mastery of the Force and an abundance of wealth. To everyone else it’s a bunch of letters security people put after their name...

Key Sessions at the CISO Executive Summit 2011

December 03, 2011 Added by:Steven Fox, CISSP, QSA

As information assurance matures, its identity in the organizational culture is merging with the business units it supports. Practitioners are challenged to adapt their skills to the evolution of an infosec business function separate from its legacy association with the IT department...

Black Hat USA 2011, ISC2 and the Shady Rat

August 07, 2011 Added by:Boris Sverdlik

Information Security is a funny animal, what other industry can you mass market something that does absolutely nothing and have the product sell itself due to marketing? Why wouldn't you throw sex into the mix? All I can say is... RIGHT ON McAfee! Next year get some unicorns with boobs...

My Canons on (ISC)² Ethics - Such as They Are

July 25, 2011 Added by:security curmudgeon

In the email thread between ISC2 general counsel Dorsey Morrow and CISSP holder Boris Sverdlik, one of the replies from Morrow was unbelievable. Not only is the email negligent and libelous, it demonstrates unprofessional behavior and a serious lack of knowledge...

Hey ISC2 - Where is the Opt Out Button?

July 15, 2011 Added by:Boris Sverdlik

I am a security researcher, and my presentation at Security Bsides was written in the same form that most “pen testing” classes are. If you are naïve enough to believe that criminals don’t use security tools in their efforts, then my friend it is finally time to hang up that hat...

What the CISSP Won't Teach You

June 28, 2011 Added by:Boris Sverdlik

Information security unlike other industries does not sleep; I personally spend 3+ hours a day just learning what I can. Technology, regulations and attack methods change every day. If you don’t stay ahead of it, you will end up with pie on your face when you get hit with the latest New Thing...
