During their 11th Plenary in San Jose, California, ETSI ISG NFV Officials and Working Group chairs provided an overview of the group's achievements to date (Phase 1: 2013-2014) together with a snapshot of the ongoing Phase 2 work due for completion early 2016.
This was done in the form of a set of 6 short tutorials, each presented by a Working Group Official. Telecom TV was present and filmed these tutorials which are now available as a good overview for NFV newcomers.

ETSI NFV#11- Security (SEC) Working Group
Igor Faynberg, Chair SEC Working Group
While NFV has its issues security wise, overall it actually presents some unique opportunities to address security problems, says Igor Faynberg. That seemed like an overstatement three years ago, but has been proven correct and the SEC group’s approach has been to ensure platform security first: “If we make that secure everything else can be built on to top,” he says. Lawful interception, however, is as yet an unsolved problem.
