Channel people at Microsoft, Google Cloud, Keeper Security and more are among the individuals making waves in the channel this week. Channel Futures’ Channel People Making Waves showcases those who have made an impact over the last seven days.

Controversy and damage control are the name of the game this week. Lawsuits abound, including the conviction of a former CIA engineer who leaked classified hacking tools to WikiLeaks. Another company in the channel is accused of stealing trade secrets. While over at Kaseya, a post on GitHub led to a fiery internal email from management.

There were less controversial stories that also made their mark. Microsoft rolled out its new position, chief partner officer, and officials announced the woman taking that role. Finally, Google Cloud received the U.S. Department of Defense’s Impact Level 4 authorization. What does that mean for the cloud provider?

Find out that and more in this week’s roundup in the slideshow above. You can find our last edition here.
