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.
- To read the full descriptions, please visit the advisory role descriptions document.
- Categorisation of OWASP Projects
- I have begun categorising our OWASP projects into the Builder, Breaker, and Defender categories.
- Currently, our categorisation is limited so I have begun to increase the search criteria for our projects.
- Additionally, I have begun to label our projects based on OWASP Open SAMM criteria.
- The labels are as follows: Governance, Construction, Verification, Deployment.
- The plan is to allow users to find projects based on these labels on our projects wiki page.
- Project Leader Responsibilities & Expectations
- I am currently working on putting together documentation that outlines a Project Leader's responsibilities, and our organisational expectations of them.
- I am also developing a "How to run a successful OWASP project" document.
- Jim and I are developing a brand usage guideline for our projects.
- An OWASP Project Lifecycle infographic is being developed as well.
- I hope that these "How To" documents and graphics will help project leaders understand their responsibilities, and how to leverage the OWASP Project infrastructure for success.
