Draft - Mission Statement

Global Industry Advisory Board (GIAB)

The Global Industry Advisory Board was created in March 2013 as the successor to the Global Industry Committee. It's goals are to expand awareness of and promote the inclusion of software security best practices in Industry, Government, Academia and regulatory agencies and be a voice for industry. This will be accomplished through outreach; including presentations, development of position papers and collaborative efforts with other entities. The board is governed by the Global Industry Advisory Board Governance document.

Its activities are: - advocating industry interests and building relationship with industry and eventually improving our corporate membership and influence. - initiating new industry related projects and building synergy between these industry related projects and promoting them (e.g. Industry links, CISO guide, CISO Survey, etc.).

Membership explains how to become an OWASP organization supporter or individual member. But you don't have to be an OWASP Member or Committee Member to contribute.

The current GIAB members joined for a 12 month term - see Global Industry Advisory Board Governance. We would especially welcome new members who can widen our covered industry areas and geographic coverage (e.g. Africa, Asia and South America) and who have time to contribute proactively.
