Based on what we’ve observed this first year in our community, here are some future goals that we’re working toward:

  • Expectations for Ideas in Progress: We intend to update our members regularly about the ideas that are being worked on.

I’m so proud of how far we’ve come in only one year. We've had impactful discussions, great product feedback, and valuable insights into the security programs and security cultures that each of you has built.
