(ISC)² Community Guidelines
Welcome to the (ISC)² Community!
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.
We want you to enjoy and find value in your experience as an engaged Community member. Please respect the guidelines and usage policies. The guidelines below, as well as the (ISC)² Code of Ethics, are your guide for determining what is appropriate to post or comment on the Community. The Community is intended to be a forum for peer engagement, positive discussion and constructive advice. We expect all users to maintain a tone of professionalism in all Community interactions.
This Community is supported by (ISC)2 Administrators and Moderators, who are clearly identified within the Community. The guidelines below were developed to ensure the Community serves the purpose outlined above and creates a professional, safe and rewarding experience for all participants. (ISC)² reserves the right to edit or remove any content in violation of these guidelines. Community users who violate these guidelines may also be subject to further action up to and including a permanent ban from the Community. At the sole discretion of (ISC)² staff, users in violation may receive warnings prior to a permanent ban, but clear, blatant violations may be removed immediately, and any offending users banned.
Enforcement of Guidelines
(ISC)² employees will be properly marked by a lime green icon containing the word “(ISC)²". These are members of the Community who will share their knowledge and expertise on (ISC)² products and services.
By using our Community, you agree to these rules, as well as the Website Access Policy for the (ISC)² Community. Content that violates the Website Access Policy or these rules will be removed, and violators may be banned from using our Community.
If you have any questions about the Community or are unsure about any of these guidelines, please feel free to reach out to anyone with the ADMIN (Administrator) tag next to their username, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
UPDATED: October 2020
