Project Division Updates

Currently Working On

  • OWASP Asia Leadership Outreach Project
    • This Asia Leadership Outreach Project came about during the discussion Dhillon and I had about OWASP at the Kuala Lumpar, Hack in the Box event.
    • He mentioned that he has offered OWASP a booth at the Kuala Lumpar, Hack in the Box event for a few years, but local chapters have not represented OWASP very well.
    • We suggested developing an OWASP Malaysia and Singapore outreach project that would involve a workshop, and the co-running of the Hack in the Box booth by members of both chapters.
    • I have put together a proposal where I outline a 3 day outreach initiative that aims to bring more experienced chapter leaders to the region for a workshop.
    • Read the full proposal for more information.
  • Development of Technical Project Advisor Requirements
    • This item involves the new management work flow for project reviews that was proposed for 2013.
    • Projects Review Process Proposal
    • It will involve a working group of technical project advisors headed by a member of the board.
    • The working group will be made up of the following areas: Secure Development, Secure Lifecycle Activity, Static Analysis, Dynamic Analysis, Governance, and Education.
    • These roles will be responsible for reviewing projects, and increasing the quality of the project review process and criteria.
    • I have put together role description and experience requirements for each technical advisor volunteer role.
