I'm not 100% au fait with ISC2's board election process but as I understand it the sitting board proposes a bunch of candidates, while the general membership can propose their own "independent candidates" as well. If you aren't into nepotism and fancy the idea of fresh faces at the top table, you might like to consider supporting some of the independents who need endorsement from at least 500 members in order to qualify and get their names onto the ballot papers.
I'm aware of the following five independents so far:
- Tadd Axon
- Seth Hardy
- Javed Ikbal
- Rolf Moulton
- Wim Remes
[Thanks to Jack Daniel for compiling the list.]
If anyone else wants to stand as an independent, do please let me know and I will gladly update this posting.
