Global Industry Committee/Verticals
The Global Industry Committee was created during the OWASP EU Summit in Portugal. The primary purpose of the Global Industry Committee is to work with industry executives to gather requirements from industry, work with Membership, Projects and others.
To expand awareness of and promote the inclusion of software security best practices in Industry, Government, Academia and regulatory agencies and be a voice for industry. We will accomplish this through outreach; including presentations, development of position papers and collaborative efforts with other entities.
Step 1: Identify specific organizations worth working with to spread the OWASP gospel
Step 2: Prioritize the proposed liaisons based on potential impact, and also realistic likelihood of the organization actively working with us
Step 3: Execute, leveraging global OWASP resources as much as possible to maximize impact
Step 4: Evaluate progress & repeat Step 1-3

Membership explains how to become an OWASP organization supporter or individual member. But you don't have to be an OWASP Member or Committee Member to contribute.
The current committee members joined for a 12 month term - see How to Join a Committee and Global Committee Pages. We would especially welcome new members who can widen our geographic coverage (e.g. Africa, Asia and South America) and who have time to contribute proactively.
