Welcome - lets talk about ISC2 (no censorship) Closing of CISSP Forum

So now, not only has ISC2 decided that they will close the original, 20 year old CISSP Forum (with 15 days notice none the less) but now it is NOT actively censoring discussion about the same (this post is now locked so no one else can comment)

 

 Update: do I get a badge for being an idiot and not noticing the "Join Group Button" thanks @Baechle)

 

For any CISSPs that may wish to comment, you have to join the CISSP group to reply (which begs the question is it truly private? Can anyone read the posts and just not reply?)

Dain,

 

It's not locked.  You have to join the group.

No, unfortunately, reading them is still public.  But like I said, it's a step in the right direction.

a step in the right direction, going down an unnecessary, difficult, useless path for the sake of self promotion is not really all that much of a bonus.

 

To quote 

         We have created a CISSP Group on the Community that is only

         accessible to those who hold a current CISSP certification.

 

 

Do we know if anyone can read the posts (CISSP or not)?  If so I'd say that the above, coming as official communication from ISC2, is problematic

I was able to read messages in CISSP Group before joining it.

Unsure if its googled or not (not sure how long that particular borg would take to grab a new discussion)

Dain, I think that the back end is is likely Google.  I believe it's indexed nearly immediately.  I have no proof of that, but other threads have taken less than a day to show up in Google.

CISSP Group seems to be protected from Google but the general posts are not.  For example, using a different browser than what I'm logged into the Community with I Googled "show us how to enrich site:community.isc2.org" (https://www.google.com/search?ei=5lwQW_L-PInasQWen5TABQ&q=show+us+how+to+enrich+site%3Acommunity.isc...) and the first hit gave access to https://community.isc2.org/t5/ISC-Updates/Show-Us-How-You-Enrich-Enable-Excel-amp-Earn-Badges-in-the... in (ISC)2 Updates.

 

However, user profiles are publicly searchable.  For example, I Googled for my username, "jdl site:community.isc2.org" and the first hit was my Community profile page!  Notice in the screenshot I am not logged in.

Good job (ISC)2!
