(ISC)2 Community

Are you aware that (ISC)2 has a community place for cybersecurity professionals?

#Copied from here

Our online Community is a place for cybersecurity professionals – including (ISC)² members, non-members, certification candidates and others – to connect, collaborate and share knowledge and best practices related to the very broad topic of security. This encompasses discussions around new technologies, best practices, new regulations, professional development, the challenges and opportunities facing the cybersecurity workforce, ways to make the most of your (ISC)2 certification and membership, and much more. We would like to keep this Community a place for appropriate cybersecurity topics and encourage all off-topic discussions to be held elsewhere.

The Seattle Chartering Chapter would like to encourage all members to join the discussion at
