Question: How and why did you become a member of CSA Minnesota Chapter?
"I became a CSA member in 2019 - in my professional role, I interact with security professionals day in day out, and it was vital for my success to understand the trends and use cases that folks were leveraging in the cloud. I had been involved in a few other security industry groups as well, but felt that CSA best fit what I was looking for in terms of education available and the broad member base."
