Is it possible that REN-ISAC could look at doing background checks (with
the applicant paying for it) instead of the 2 vouching members. I know
my organization has 1 REN-ISAC person and but I think the next one is
over 6 hours driving away which does not really build up a relationship
that I would count as 'strong' relationship. This doesn't relate much to
me as I am not 100% security aligned so wouldn't qualify anyway...
however, the actual security organization is growing and the other
people will need to be able to join so that our 1 guy can take a vacation.
