Open Source in Finance Meetup:  CFI and CDMC - March 2022

March 21, 2022
Our FINOS Community had an incredible time both in-person, and online for the first Open Source in Finance Meetup of the year! We gathered in midtown New York at our silver member Synechron's beautiful office, with food, drink, discussion, and a few of great presentations on FINOS, the Compliant Financial Infrastructure Project, and the CDMC standard as well.
Video and slides are available below.

Talk Abstracts:

So you want to build an IaC registry? - Eddie Knight, Synechron

Drawing from the benefits and difficulties he has seen while working with multiple financial firms undergoing this journey, this presentation by Eddie Knight will follow a fictional team that is working to create a registry of reusable infrastructure as code modules. To bring things home, we'll also learn how FINOS is tackling this problem with input from major cloud providers, fintech contributors, and global industry regulators.

Cloud Data Management Capabilities (CDMC) Global Industry Framework & FINOS – Accelerating Trusted Cloud Adoption - Mike Meriton, EDM Council

CDMC is the global standard for managing data in cloud, multi-cloud and hybrid cloud. CDMC is a free license available from the EDM Council and developed by 100+ companies including the top 4 CSP. In this talk you will learn how the EDM Council and FINOS have partnered to help companies accelerate their trusted cloud adoption with CDMC by developing open source testing scripts and procedures aligned to the CDMC 14 key controls for protecting sensitive data in cloud environments.
