The Training Accreditation Committee (TAC) ensures that the standards expected by the IISP and its Partners for Information Security training courses for professionals and users are maintained. All applications are reviewed by the TAC following an initial evaluation by the IISP Secretariat, and then by an Assessor. The TAC considers recommendations made by the Assessor, and makes a decision on the outcome for each applicant. The focus in particular is on the more borderline cases. Feedback is provided to applicants via the Secretariat, or in person by a member of the TAC if potentially contentious. TAC members will help with mentoring where necessary. The TAC Chair is Pete Fischer and the Deputy Chair is David Alexander.
TAC meetings are called by the Secretariat as necessary. The majority of meetings will be held via conference call, but at least 1 face-to-face meeting will be called each year. Information relevant to each meeting is sent to TAC members at least 1 week in advance of the meeting. Members views are fed back to the Secretariat, collated and sent to members in advance of the meeting, the expectation being that TAC members will submit reviews as well as attending meetings.
