Steve Senz reports that the Security team has almost completed all of it committed deliverables.
The Security COE portal will be launched at the March luncheon at DOE. This will be the place that anyone within the company can ask a security question, find the latest news about products or standards, and read a monthly blog about a security topic from one of the team members. We hope this will excite and infuse an appreciation for security in our daily activities.
We are just starting work with the IT Team to develop an InScope SSP so that we can continue to support federal program, but also assure our employees that the company is providing the protection mechanisms and procedures to protect their personal information.
We have delivered a connections spreadsheet to NOAA. NOAA is using this in future SSP documentation and this will be the first InScope branded product from the COE.
Finally, we are working with Tom to develop security related offerings that we can deliver to clients.
The Architecture COE is still getting its wings, but all in all we’re gaining steam! We’ve been using exciting new tools like Slack and Trello to keep in sync with one another with great success! Right now the team is developing a workshop aimed at teaching software developers how to architect their code in a way that focuses on the problem domain, keeps the code base clean, and improves communication between developers and their clients. Several participants have chosen to elevate their status to contributors, and we’ve even added a new member, Shamim Mehbub!
