Currently Working On
- OWASP Marketing
- I am managing the OWASP Marketing deliverables for the foundation.
- I am managing the relationship with the Marketing company hired to deliver some materials for us.
- The Ops Team and I discussed our current relationship with them, and the deliverables they have provided us.
- We made decisions on these pieces, and recommendations on creative brief adjustments.
- We met with the Marketing company this week, and communicated our decisions to them.
- I am currently coordinating a webinar with the Marketing company, to communicate out their recommendations to us to our community.
- Projects in SalesForce
- All existing project meta data has been entered into SalesForce.
- The challenge now is implementing a workflow that will help me manage the data and the relationships between each piece of information.
- I am currently working with Kate to figure out a short term solution for this.
- The long term solution is to build SalesForce portals that will allow project leaders the ability to self manage their data.
- Women in Security Event Module
- I met with several volunteers at the New York City volunteer meeting for AppSec USA 2013.
- Some of these volunteers are interested in bringing the Women in Security event module back to AppSec USA this year.
- I helped collect volunteer information, created a mailing list, and I am managing the conversation to help get this event module to the conference this year.
- We are currently developing guidelines and entry requirements for new candidates.
- Projects at AppSec EU
- Several members of the Ops Team and I met with Dirk, the local events planner for AppSec EU 2013.

- Dirk already has speakers lined up for the OPT, and I am putting together a "Call for Entries" for the OSS.
