CSA UK AGM Updates

Our Chapter Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held last week, kindly hosted by Trend Micro. With respect to Chapter business, the following outcomes were noted:
  • Lee Newcombe - elected to Vice-Chair
  • Lewis Troke - elected to Director of Research
  • Paul Simmonds - elected as General Board Member.
Each appointment lasts for two years. It was encouraging how many of the attendees expressed an interest in two of our other positions - Director of Events and Director of Communications - and so we hope to be able to fill those positions shortly.  The more observant amongst you will note that we currently have only a Vice-Chair as no-one was nominated for the role of Chair - Lee Newcombe (your author :)) will deputise whilst we await a candidate willing to put themselves up for election as Chair.

It was a positive interactive session with some great content being presented by knowledgeable practitioners. Many thanks to Dave Walker of AWS for a fantastic technical session on using Lambda to automate DevSecOps, Craig Savage from VMware for walking through the cultural and governance issues associated with adoption of hybrid cloud, Francesco Cipollone for sharing practical lessons learned from a number of public cloud deployments and to Bharat Mistry for showing how API-enabled security tooling is the way forward.  The slides from the day will be added to this post as they become available.

As ever, we are here to support the UK cloud community.  Feel free to contact us with ideas for what you want from your chapter in terms of outputs and activities!
