We have had a great start to the year by partnering with HTCIA Silicon Valley for January's meeting. HTCIA Silicon Valley Chapter President Cynthia Navarro presented on open source investigations. Copies of Cynthia's presentation are on the website available to chapter members.
In February, Syd Trujillo of Samsung hosted a meeting with an engaging presentation on the Insider Threat by our partners in the FBI and in March, our chapter held the 55th Annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Day at the Fremont Marriot where eighteen officers were recognized. Thanks to LEAD Chairman and ARVP Carlos Galvez, CPP and his committee for making the arrangements for this great event.
On April 26th, our chapter will hold their 3rd Annual Women in Security Event at NVIDIA. Registration is now open and we are currently seeking sponsors for this event. Thanks to WIS co-chair's Alana Forrest and Kim Whitworth as well as members of their committee for putting this together.
Registration is now open for the CPP Review on May 23rd and 24th, at Adobe in San Francisco. This review will cover all subjects contained in the review and is being presented by dedicated volunteer CPPs. Special thanks to Gordon Ladds, CPP for hosting this event at Adobe.
I would also like to thank Cindy Doyle and Debb Rodriguez co-chairs for Membership who have gone over and above connecting with our members and Cindy's outreach to get the Young Professionals group up and running.
Lastly, I would like to ask the membership for assistance in finding space for our chapter meetings this year as well as suggestions for future monthly speakers that would appeal to the membership. We are currently looking for a space for our May 17th meeting as well as a speaker. If you have space available for up to 50 members or know of potential speakers, please contact me directly.
