OWASP Global Projects Report

Currently Working On

  • Technical Project Advisors: Work Update
    • I have put together another version of the project assessment criteria.
    • This version was based on the first test assessments conducted by the advisors.
    • This version eliminates redundancies between the product assessment and the project health assessment.
    • Additionally, we have separated out the focus of each assessment.
    • The Project Assessment focuses on the project health based on OWASP best practices.
    • The Product Assessment focuses on the quality of the deliverable.
  • Women in AppSec: AppSec USA 2013
    • The Women in AppSec grading has now begun.
    • Kait, our new Grants & Fundraising intern, has been helping with the administrative work for the program.
    • We have collected the letters of recommendation sent to us from each of our applicant's references.
    • We have separated them out, and placed them into the folders of each selection committee member.
    • We intend to finish the grading by September 23rd.
  • Meet our new Grants & Fundraising Intern
    • Our Grants & Fundraising intern has now gone through the orientation process, and she has begun to work on program activities.
    • She has been working on getting set up on the wiki, and learning how to create and edit wiki pages.
    • Kait will be putting together the content for the Women in AppSec Program Page.
    • Additionally, she is putting together content for our marketing page.
    • You can read more about her week by reading her Intern Weekly Report.
    • Start Date: Monday, September 16th 2013.
    • Internship End Date: Monday, January 13th 2014.
  • Grants and Fundraising Strategy
    • I now have more time to work on strategic planning for projects, grants, and fundraising since Kait is helping with the admin work for several of our programs.
    • I have been working on outlining and writing the grants and fundraising strategy to raise funds for projects and programs for 2014.
    • This week, I worked on developing the strategy outline, and I am analyzing the macro and micro environment OWASP exists within.
  • Google for Non-Profits: YouTube Channel
    • I helped Project Leader, Jonathan Marcil, submit an application too Google for Non-Profits on behalf of OWASP.
    • We had to apply to Google so we could link his YouTube channel to our foundation account with Google.
    • Unfortunately, the application was unsuccessful, twice.
    • However, we managed to get it approved with a bit of persistence.
    • Jonathan is all set up to put together our official YouTube channel on behalf of the foundation.
    • Thank you Jonathan for your hard work on this, and for taking this project on.
  • Daily Project based queries and requests

    • Global AppSec questions.
    • Funding queries.
    • Travel availability.
    • Project based administrative help.
