Globally, there was one YP event per week for the entire year. There were a great variety of technical events, facility tours, networking evenings (including “speed networking”), as well as career- and leadership-development seminars. YP committee collaborations to share best practices, joint YP and student events, and fun social events were also organized. It is fantastic to see all the different events that have taken place around the world this year. Flyers and photos from these events are available on the YP Community Page. We hope that these will inspire YP groups to host events in their own areas.

ISPE has a new special interest group (SIG) to work on IT cybersecurity. The Special Interest Group was formed under GAMP®. A conversation with Jason Young of Silver Bullet Security, who heads the new group, provides details about the Special Interest Group.
