Anger management and security

I chose this section because it seems very à propos.owing to some of the rather caustic posts lately:

  1. If you're angry, take some time before furiously trolling the boards.
  2. If someone offers advice, s/he may be wrong, s/he may be right, s/he may have some truth to the comment. Don't discount advice. 
  3. Realize that people usually don't mean to offend. If they have offended you, just be matter of fact. You can message them privately, or you can have it out with them in public (your mileage may vary whatever you choose.)

Fewer people seem to embrace courtesy these days; likely because many of our leaders think insulting and ridiculing their colleagues (political or commercial) is "good governance."

 

Societies that give in to that are diminished and disempowered.

 

I put this is "Career" because, when you learn the power of courtesy and tact, you will go far when you embrace it.

 

Good luck to everyone on their respective career paths.

Re: Anger management and security

Excellent advice on both posts.

 

My gran (a very smart woman) used to say "If you don't have anything nice to say, maybe you should just shut up"

We need to fire all the clowns in power and get your gran and her friends to get us out of this colossal cl*sterfudge in which we find ourselves!

Well, if you really must troll some boards... then perhaps just go and troll 4chan.

 

I believe that’s the kind of thing that will find favour with the denizens there, so it may well be considered a win-win.

Re: Anger management and security

There are also the security concepts of risk management and many of the other bodies of practice. Risk management is an issue when it comes to disgruntled suppliers, customers, employees, third-party activists, etc.

 

Likely, (ISC)2 can enact a crisis communications plan when things go South. Often, how the initial communication is handled will augur well or poorly for what ensues. Possibly, the management and membership reps can be drilled in crisis communication. (Not to imply that no crisis management exists! Crises come in so many different shapes and sizes from active shooters to DDos - and everything in between!)

 

What concerns me though are threats, because they need to be taken seriously -- either against the organization's brand or against its assets and people.

 

Just a few thoughts.

I can just imagine those clowns reading this and consequently perceiving her as a 'threat.'

 

 

We'll have to count on ISC2's privacy policy not letting that happen...   Man Wink

"I can just imagine those clowns reading this and consequently perceiving her as a 'threat.'"

 

  1. Thankfully, those clowns don't read.
  2. There are more grans than clowns (cf https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfSGJP-l868 )
  3. Grans vote; clowns don't
