What is a CSA Chapter?

Our chapters are made up of local security professionals who volunteer to increase cloud security awareness in their local community and provide outreach for CSA research, education and training resources. They work to solve cloud vulnerabilities and challenges, by collaborating with other experts in the field to establish cloud security best practices. Chapters offer participants an opportunity for leadership in regional communities, and the chance to establish thought leadership in their field.
