Australian security board survives members’ vote
Directors of the Australian Information Security Association (AISA) have survived a membership vote on whether they should be removed from their roles.
An extraordinary general meeting was held on Friday in response to a petition that sought to topple the association’s current leadership by sacking its entire board, which had been gathering signatures since February.
Of those that voted: 53.9 per cent voted ‘no’ to removing all current directors from their positions, 41.5 per cent voted ‘yes’, and a further 4.6 per cent were present and abstained.
The EGM achieved a record rate of participation, doubling the votes cast at the organisation’s last AGM, AISA said in a statement.
