(ISC)² announced more than 14,500 cybersecurity professionals have joined the new online (ISC)² Community since its launch last month. The (ISC)² Community is an open forum for (ISC)² members and other security experts to connect, share best practices and help advance the cybersecurity profession.
“For me, (ISC)² give an opportunity to all members across the world to exchange their opinions and/or experience about a topic . As a result, we may see some new consideration about something we have not consider as important for our career. We see that currently, with the General Data Protection Regulation, which was considered by many people as an EU only issue and in fact impact a lot of business working with EU customers,” said Yves Le Roux, Co-Chair of the (ISC)2 EMEA Advisory Council, (ISC)².
“(ISC)² members represent some of the best minds in the cybersecurity field, and our new community provides a platform for them to directly collaborate on a wide range of issues, trends and workplace challenges,” said (ISC)² CEO David Shearer, CISSP. “It’s extremely exciting to see so many cybersecurity professionals join the community this quickly and immediately begin assisting one another with building careers, continuing their professional education, discussing proposed cyber legislation and more. The (ISC)² Community captures the pulse of the cybersecurity profession and offers tremendous insight into the challenges and opportunities security practitioners face every day.”
The (ISC)² Community is open to anyone interested in engaging cybersecurity professionals in discussions related to cyber, information, software and infrastructure security. Top conversations so far, include:
- Discussion of new password guidelines from NIST
- Knowledge sharing on the E.U. General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
- Advice for responding to the KRACK exploit to secure wireless devices
- Best practice sharing for vulnerability management
- Volunteer opportunities to educate children on cybersecurity
