OWASP board member since 2009. Elected to position of global Vice Chair, September 2011.
OWASP Board tenure from 2009 to 2015
Eoin Keary has been with OWASP since 2004. He is based in Ireland and runs a software security practice, bccriskadvisory.com and edgescan.com
He was on the Global Board of the OWASP foundation from 2009 to 2015. He was the first democratically elected to the board member in 2009. During this time Eoin assisted in founding the OWASP legal entity in Europe and has helped provide structure to OWASPs finances and strategy.
Eoin believes the projects OWASP delivers are a key aspect of the foundation and also very important in helping both developers and security professionals in building more secure software.
Eoin previously lead the OWASP Testing Guide and currently the OWASP Code Review Guide and also contributed to other OWASP projects such as OWASP SAMM, OWASP CISO Guide & CISO Survey, OWASP Cheat sheets, and the OWASP ASVS & ZAP as a reviewer.
Eoin believes OWASP needs to focus more on outreach to the software development community and also involve itself more with the industries which rely on software to achieve business and social goals by assisting organisations, CISO's and security communities in writing and defending software infrastructure.
To this end, Eoin frequently delivers free technical and executive awareness workshops to help organisations achieve their goals in a secure manner.
