Hi all,
The FDIS of ISO/IEC 27001:2013 has been released. There are a number of changes from 27001:2005. Is it time to consider overhauling our article on 27001? The article is currently a little dusty and unwieldy, and as other standards/frameworks converge on 27001, I think the importance of this article increases... bobrayner (talk) 15:36, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

Having looked at more sources, much of the 27001 article is tied to the old standard; the new standard now seems notable in its own right and there are dozens of sources out there pointing out differences, so I went ahead and started a fresh article for the new standard. I think this would help reduce confusion once I've finished checking the incoming links &c - since various other pages which talk about "27001" will actually be talking about aspects of 27001:2005 which have since changed or been removed. bobrayner (talk) 22:09, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

Conduit and Browser hijacking[edit]

We're having a discussion about WP:RS for identifying malware on Talk:Conduit (publisher network and platform)#Browser_Hijack. I'd like to solicit advice from folks more knowledgeable than myself about this topic. Terrible Tim (talk) 20:30, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for your time,

Information Security Certifications[edit]

Hi all,
I'm concerned about {{Information Security Certifications}}. It seems to take up quite a lot of screen space (more than the content in most of the articles), but it's woefully incomplete.

  • Navboxes tend to work well when they cover topic areas with clear boundaries, and where there are connections between individual articles, and where all the things you could reasonably put in a list will actually pass the notability guideline; but none of those three apply here.
  • There are lots of certifications which don't have articles, there are lots of vendors which only manage one or two certs (but they still take up the full width of the page), there are far more certs which aren't even listed in the navbox, or which straddle different topics.

What should we do here? Delete the template and replace with meaningful content in some of the articles? Overhaul the template somehow? Replace with categories? Or what? bobrayner (talk) 14:17, 3 December 2013 (UTC)

Link all certs without articles to the company that provides the cert. User still has a quick way to see what certs the vendor has and can go to the page for more info. Sephiroth storm (talk) 19:30, 3 December 2013 (UTC)
Maybe this is mostly an autohide issue. I'm not clear on how this works but the template is expanded in CompTIA and collapsed in EC-Council. I don't see any difference in the article source code. ~KvnG 14:46, 6 December 2013 (UTC)


I don't know the field well enough to tell, but the new article Casperspy is at best confusing and at worst, may be advertising for someone selling malware. If someone with some expertise could take a look and advise, I'd appreciate it. Thank you. SchreiberBike talk 07:23, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Is OpenCA notable?[edit]

I removed a PROD on OpenCA after a Google search. Regardless, the article needs work. (talk) 02:26, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
