The Global Industry Committee was created during the OWASP EU Summit in Portugal. The primary purpose of the Global Industry Committee is to work with industry executives to gather requirements from industry, work with Membership, Projects and others.

Mission Statement

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. We will accomplish this through outreach; including presentations, development of position papers and collaborative efforts with other entities. Powerpoint of Accomplishments

Committee Plan

Step 1: Identify specific organizations worth working with to spread the OWASP gospel

Step 2: Prioritize the proposed liaisons based on potential impact, and also realistic likelihood of the organization actively working with us

Step 3: Execute, leveraging global OWASP resources as much as possible to maximize impact

Step 4: Evaluate progress & repeat Step 1-3
