Chris Fuenty joined CENIC a mere 16 months ago in November of 2016. In this short time he has already made a lasting impact on the Systems and Tools team and more broadly on CENIC as an organization. In particular, Chris's outstanding work in the area of IT security, through his diligence in incident response and forensic investigation, as well as his contributions to the creation of ongoing security standards, is noteworthy. In addition to his accomplishments in security, Chris has led desktop support refresh efforts and worked on projects such as systems infrastructure, perfSONAR, and MOSAIC. As Chris continues to learn and grow, we look forward to many future achievements to come. We proudly celebrate Chris Fuenty as our first CENIC Star for 2018!
