CSA-DC Chapter: January Meetup


The DC Metro Area Chapter (CSA-DC) of the Cloud Security Alliance is pleased to invite you to our January meetup! This is a fantastic opportunity to network with DC Metro Area thought leaders and learn more about our mission.

Our region includes a diverse range of businesses, government organizations and academic institutions as well as many heavily regulated industries such as the U.S. Government, Healthcare and Financial sector. Our mission is to help the local IT community (you) succeed. This includes having appropriate influence on policy around IT Security Regulations and Privacy via position papers. We will also help our community network and share lessons learned by developing collaborative guidance for IT Modernization incorporating security-by design.
