Help and Support

Looking for some answers about how Enterprise Participation will impact you?  Look no further!  The following tables will help you figure out how you, and others, are impacted and what you need to do next.

Bottom line, what's different?

  • Instead of two tiers of membership (General and XSec), there are now four core communities (General, Officer, Ops, and Affiliate)
  • If you are currently a Member Rep, you will still be a Member Rep and also be added to the Ops core community
  • The Ops community is for those who meet our traditional guidelines (protection and response for the entire institution)
  • XSec has not changed (job requirements, vetting, vouching); the pre-requisite is 6 weeks of good standing in Ops
  • The General core community is for security practitioners that don't meet Ops requirements
  • The Officer core community is for executives with a stake in information security
  • The Affiliate core community is for trusted experts to participate in special interest groups
  • Refer to the EP page for full descriptions of the communities and roles
