The TAG is composed of approximately ten members selected by the TAG, and one or more liaisons appointed by REN-ISAC management. The TAG is primarily composed of REN-ISAC members, but may contain individuals not eligible for REN-ISAC membership. Individuals drawn from outside the REN-ISAC membership will be given the privileges of membership during their TAG appointment.
Among its activities, the TAG:
- performs an annual survey of the REN-ISAC membership to evaluate existing information product and services and to develop recommendations for new or improved products and services
- produces Technical Advisories for dissemination that cover topics that may have broad impact to the community
- provides to REN-ISAC written recommendations developed from the survey, other input gathering, and the combined experience of the TAG members. The reports will critically evaluate existing REN-ISAC products and services; identify and prioritize issues, questions, and opportunities; recommend new or improved services and products; and recommend technical methods, tools, relationships, and analytic techniques to support or improve products and services.
