March 2013 – 7×24 Exchange Central Virginia Meeting Recap
The 7×24 Central Virginia Chapter meeting was held on March 18th of this year at the Wyndham Virginia Crossings Conference Center. We had two speakers for this event. Our first speaker was Michelle Poe, Virginia Economic Development Authority Manager, Business Attraction with the Virginia Economic Development Authority. This was a great talk regarding the Data Center activity in the commonwealth of Virginia. There were several key facts about how Virginia is known to be a leader in the Data Center Market, and why we have attracted some of the larger companies here on the East Coast. Our feature presenter was Rick Henson, VP, Security Operations at QTS Data Centers. Rick gave a great talk about the security measures required for a Data Center of their size. He also made us aware of the other aspects it takes to make a Data center secure for the client and also have access to their information. Both presentations are available on our website. We had 62 members in attendance.
