That's right, I'm starting my campaign for the ISC2 Board of Directors in a bid to make a difference by doing something about it! I would like to add new blood to the board in a bid to bring fresh ideas to help grow the organization to the betterment of the members!

I greatly appreciate your support and please tell your friends!

I need 500 valid signatures by September 17, 2012

The fine print: You need to register with the email address that is on file with ISC2. This is very important. Help put a Canadian on the ISC2 board. Thanks!
Vote For Dave Lewis For ISC2 Board of Directors!

Please fill out the form here:  PETITION

So, why am I doing this? Simple really. An email went out Aug 21 from ISC2 that announced a few of the people who were seeking election to the ISC2 board. I realized that this was my chance to make a change. It’s time for me to do something about it rather than to sit idly by on the sidelines.

If I’m chosen for the Board of Directors here is what I’m aiming to accomplish,

  1. I want to work to restore the CISSP exam and it’s place in the community as something to be respected
  2. I want to help bring the ISC2 into the wider acceptance in the community and help make it a force for positive change
  3. I want to ensure that the ISC2 is representative and accountable to it’s membership

So, a little about me. I have over 15 years industry experience in IT security architecture, operations and management. Currently, I work in information security for Advanced Micro Devices. I’m also the founder
of Liquidmatrix Security Digest.

Prior to my current role, I worked in the finance, healthcare, entertainment and critical infrastructure verticals. I have worked for a defense contractor as a security consultant to clients such as the FBI, US Navy, Social Security Administration, US Postal Service and the US Department of Defense to name a few.

In addition to my volunteer work with Defcon and Sector I have my fingers in many pies trying to do my part. I’m currently working with other members of Liquidmatrix to launch an open Canadian CERT.

When I’m not working 27 hours a day I can be found spending time with my family, playing bass guitar and polishing my “brick of enlightenment”.

Please spread the word and thank you for your support!

Paul Keser Looking at your LinkedIn profile you do appear to have a great deal of Information Security Experience, are you CISSP certified? While you are in the CISSP group you don't list CISSP certification. While I believe new blood is a good thing I also want to make sure the ISC2 board members are CISSP certified because I want to see it fixed from the inside.
