First Chapter Meeting

September 2019 Update

Thanks to NIST Fellow Ron Ross for speaking to our members on September 12th.  Delighted that Dr. Diane Murphy invited several of her students to attend his talk at Marymount University in Ballston. Our board has been busy making plans for our remaining events for the year.  We're also pleased to announce a new partnership with the DC chapter of the Cloud Security Alliance.  We will cross promote our events and also have a joint meeting before the end of the year, so stay tuned.  They are putting together a boat cruise on Thursday September 26.
