Is this "Community" worth anything to us?

Is this supposed to be a replacement for the CISSPForum mailing list?  If so, it has a ways to go.

 

It looks very similar to the other "forum replacement" from a few years back, and has a similar lack of content.  That one died fairly quickly.  Or, if it didn't die, became irrelevant.

 

The guidelines are basic (if banal, and somewhat repetitive: "Be Respectful" and "Staying Respectful"?), but some aren't very clear ("Other Removable Content: Please do not post advertisements or links to content that violate our guidelines").

 

Is there any way to create new topics for postings, aside from "Welcome," "Certifications," "Industry News," "Ask ISC2," or "Security Congress"?

New things like this will always have a way to go. It is much better than a mailing list though since you can comment inline rather than have a misguided thread.

 

Hopefully they leverage this as a way to get us talking rather than for advertising.

Oh, I won't let you get away with that one.  First, I like email.  It comes to me: I don't have to make a separate point of going to a Website for a blog or a posting, to find out what's new.

 

Of course, I've been doing email for over thirty years, and have learned how to do things like inline comments.  And, I've got to say, I can make inline comments a lot easier in email than with the wretched editor they've saddled us with in this "Community" (or whatever we are supposed to call it).

Now, I did manage to do it.  But I had to abandon my first attempt before I figured out that you have to start the post, then figure out where you want to put part of the message, then "quote", then delete the part of the quote not relevant to the first part you want to reply to, then make sure you have space for the second part, then quote again, then delete the part that isn't relevant to the second point you want to make, etc.

 

Sorry, email is a LOT easier than that.

And then, of course, by the time I get through all that I forget to reply to your second point.

 

Yes, I agree.  I hope they start using it for more than advertising.  But I'm not holding my breath.

 

And I still want to know how to create new topics.

Re: Is this "Community" worth anything to us?

Thank you so much for posting!  This is only the start for the new (ISC)² Community. Members of CISSPForum have done an outstanding job helping each other and sharing best practices for a long time. This community is not meant to be a replacement, but our hope is you will also join us here and contribute to building a strong community on our new platform.

 

After a pilot launch at the 2017 (ISC)² Security Congress, we began inviting members to this forum yesterday. In 24 hours, we had more than 3,000 (ISC)² members sign up. We’re already seeing great conversations starting.  It is our hope that community members will value the ability to quickly connect with one another on a wide range of topics. Conversations will drive the development of the community and help us expand the types of discussions and forums based on your areas of interest. That’s the collaboration we’re trying to foster here with the new community.

 

This is only the start. We’re also very excited about how this new platform will scale and grow with the community.  As specific topics become of interest among community members, (ISC)² will create new boards and groups. 

 

We hope you continue to join us here and add to the discussion. And please share your advice for success. As an active member of the CISSPForum, we would love to hear your suggestions.

I think ISC2 needs more aggressive and hands on approach to further enrichment and networking by ISC2 members. An org of this stature and having such large number of members should be organizing lot more face to face and online seminars where members can intereact and share with each other.

Hello!


We are certainly interested in connecting members as much as possible, and try to do so with our in-person events and online webinars. We hope this Community is another way for members (and non-members alike) to connect. We also welcome ideas and feedback, so feel free to message me any time you have suggestions.

 

Thanks so much for being part of this Community!

I like this site so far. I do wish there were more involvement by other members.

Re: Is this "Community" worth anything to us?

Well, I've certainly tried to answer a couple of questions. And you can understand why ICS2 would do it - it is a "shiny thing" that can be pointed at and claimed as a great achievement.

 

Whether it is significantly more useful than email lists or not, I am going to wait out. It is certainly more inconvenient - yet another website I have to remember to visit. So, I'll hit it once a whenever or so.
