OWASP Global Projects Report

Currently Working On

  • Technical Project Advisors: Work Update
    • The Advisors and I met this week to discuss their test reviews of the following projects:
    • We went into a good amount of detail describing our experiences with the test assessments during our meeting.
    • We primarily found major redundancies throughout the assessment questions on both types of assessment. (Health and deliverable review)
    • We concluded that we will need to remove the redundancies, and create another version of the criteria that we can then re-test using the same projects above.
    • We also discussed the inconsistency between all three project templates.
    • We all agreed that the Cornucopia Project template is very visually appealing and easy to read.
    • It is a great example of what we would like OWASP project wiki templates to look like.
    • We decided to use the Cornucopia Project template as a starting point for creating a new wiki template for OWASP Projects.
  • Women in AppSec: AppSec USA 2013
    • The application period is now closed for the Women in AppSec Program for 2013.
    • We had a total of 36 respondents that applied to the program.
    • We are now in the process of collecting reference letters for all of the applicants.
    • I am also creating grading sheets so the selection team can split the initial grading of the candidates.
    • Candidates will be invited for a telephone interview with the selection team based on their scores.
  • Meet our new Grants & Fundraising Intern
    • My search for a Grants & Fundraising intern is now over.
    • Kait Disney-Leugers has been chosen to take on the internship.
    • I am currently setting her up with all of her accounts, and I have sent her an orientation packet.
