This team of volunteers evaluates, processes, and reviews security reports and fixes, helping to ensure that Drupal as a project maintains its status as highly secure software. In this Tag1 Team Talk, Tag1 Managing Director Michael Meyers is joined by Drupal Security Team member <a href="https://www.drupal.org/u/mlhess">Michael Hess</a>. In this installment, they will talk about what the Security Team does, who does it, and how. They will also differentiate between the Security Team and the Working Group, and how their responsibilities overlap but are not the same. If you’ve ever reported a security issue, or wondered how security reports are handled, this talk explains it all. And if you’ve ever considered joining the Drupal Security Team, get the inside scoop on how that happens, here.

As organizations get larger, the number of websites companies need also increases. From Human Resources, to sales support, to customer service and support, different groups in your organization may have some similar needs, but different access levels. Making these websites turnkey can reduce the amount of time your IT or devops teams need to spend standing up resources. It can also significantly reduce development costs when you have a deployable website instance that can be used to fulfill the needs of several organizations in your company. In this first part a two part series, Tag1 Managing Director Michael Meyers talks with CIO Jeff Sheltren, and Senior Infrastructure Engineer Travis Whitehead about the challenges large enterprises face, and the software-based solutions Tag1 is using to help our customers be more successful with standardized website deployments. ### Additional resources - <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/eks/">EKS</a> - <a href="https://www.pulumi.com/">Pulumi</a> <em>For a transcript of this video, see <a href="/transcript-deploying-new-enterprise-web-applications-minutes-part-1" title="Transcript: Deploying New Enterprise Web Applications in Minutes - Part 1">Transcript: Deploying New Enterprise Web Applications in Minutes - Part 1</a>.</em> Photo by Amir Hanna on Unsplash</p><div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/deploying-new-enterprise-web-applications-minutes-part-1" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/lynette-miles" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="lynette@tag1consulting.com">lynette@tag1co…</span></span> <span>Wed, 04/21/2021 - 11:26</span> Wed, 21 Apr 2021 18:26:12 +0000 lynette@tag1consulting.com 325 at https://www.tag1consulting.com A Deep Dive Into End To End Encryption (E2EE) in Yjs - part 2 https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/deep-dive-end-end-encryption-e2ee-yjs-part-2 <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>There are significant challenges in implementation of E2EE protocols, from who handles the security, to ensuring all participants can access the same data.
