My OWASP Objective:
My Vision for OWASP
The Asia Pacific region has a number of unique challenges. These include language, cultural and distance issues. The majority of OWASP members are from the US or UK geographies. To ensure a global reach, OWASP must meet these challenges head on. This involves growing local, country, and regional chapters. A program must be built to help language-specific translation of key OWASP project resources. OWASP must assist local chapters with planning local conferences, events, and coordinating international speakers. OWASP must also aide in evangelising the mission throughout the region.
We know that the OWASP brand is one of the most trusted brands in Application Security. It is critical that OWASP maintains transparency and be open to members and the community at large.
* Global Outreach - Expanding Asia Pacific
To ensure adequate representation of Asia Pacific region within OWASP, OWASP should assist local regions with chapters, conferences and language translation.
* OWASP - Application Security Evangelism
I firmly believe that OWASP needs to spend more time with developers, project owners and businesses to deliver a few key messages. These messages emphasize that application security is relevant and important. The messages also need to illustrate the current threat landscape. We need to take our wealth of experience and information to the wider community by attending and presenting OWASP to the community outside of the Application/Information Security forum.
