CCC Newsletter- January 2024

By February 27, 2024No Comments5 min read

Hello Community Member,

Welcome to the New Year. We’re excited to continue to connect with you and help drive innovation. You’ll hear from us on a monthly basis (at least) for any news and insightful information.

A quick reminder of what we’re about: Confidential Computing Consortium is a community focused on open-source licensed projects securing DATA IN USE and accelerating the adoption of confidential computing through open collaboration. We welcome all members and projects to be involved and engaged. We’re all contributors to shaping the future of Confidential Computing.

Without further ado, let’s get into the content.

CCC Presence in 2023

We wrapped up a busy year of growth and lots of activities. By bringing in the new Executive Director, Mike Bursell, along with our community members’ participation, we’ve increased our presence at industry conferences significantly.

You can hear from Mike on how his first year at CCC as the ED has been and where he is looking to take on in 2024 in his blog.

Technical Community

In 2023 we focused on growing three things: our projects, ecosystem recognition, and our community. Our technical community made great strides on each of these. Our open-source project portfolio is wider and more mature. Outside of the CCC, we contributed security expertise to public documents and standards organizations. As we grew to deliver these projects and papers, we maintained our emphasis on growing a positive community where everyone is welcome, and anyone can learn and contribute.

Welcome, Sal Kimmich

We’ve started the year off strongly with the addition of Sal Kimmich to the CCC staff team as Technical Community Advisor. Sal has lots of experience in open source communities and security, and is already shaking up what we’re doing (in a number of excellent ways). Expect to hear lots more from Sal. Read more on Sal.
