(ISC)2 Nominations and Election

If you are a CISSP, or hold any other (ISC)2 certification, read on- the elections are coming up.  Just like in real life, I don't want to hear you whine about the state of things if you don't take the time to vote.  There are three candidates who are not on the official slate, they each need 633 "signatures" to get onto the ballot.  Jack Holleran, Claude Williams, and Seth Hardy are trying to get on the ballot and I encourage you to look into their positions and sign/vote as you feel appropriate.  Remember, signing a petition does not commit you to voting for the candidate, it simply helps get them on the ballot.

Seth has a website outlining his positions.  I took a look, liked what I saw, signed his petition, and plan to vote for him.  Seth is an active and engaged member of the security community, the kind of person I believe may be able to help steer (ISC)2 in a direction I would like to see.

"Signing" actually means sending an email from the address of record with (ISC)2 (or including the address of record in the email), including your member number, and stating that you are signing the candidate's petition.  (This assumes you are a member in good standing).
