OWASP Global Projects Report

Currently Working On

  • Project Summit: AppSec USA 2013
    • I continue to plan the logistics for the project summit taking place at AppSec USA this year.
    • We are now closer to finalizing the travel arrangements for each project leader.
    • We are in the process of organizing the schedule of project talks for the conference, as well.
    • The schedule is filling up, and I hope to have it finalized soon so we can update the conference schedule.
    • The Project Summit will be taking place in the Sky Room on both conference days.
  • Women in AppSec: AppSec USA 2013
    • The Women in AppSec Planning team is now putting together a process to help select our final candidates.
    • Additionally, we are putting together a selection committee to help review and select the winning candidates.
    • We plan on beginning our selection process after the 9th of September once the application deadline has passed.
    • Women in AppSec Application Form.
    • The application deadline is Monday, September 09, 2013 at 5pm GMT.
    • The deadline for sponsors is Monday, September 09, 2013, as well.
  • Projects at Conferences
    • I have been working closely with the local event planners for AppSec EU and AppSec LATAM on this.
    • We are sending one project leader to Germany next week to present his project at AppSec EU.
    • I have been helping him with his travel and accommodation logistics for the conference, and he is now set to go.
    • Additionally, I helped source two project leaders for the AppSec LATAM conference.
    • They will be speaking about their projects at the event in October.
    • I am helping them book their travel and accommodation for the event, as well.
  • Grants for Projects
    • I worked on three grant proposals for three of our projects this week.
    • One was for the OWASP AppSensor Project, the second was for OpenSAMM, and the third was for the OWTF Project.
    • The project teams did an excellent job of putting their proposals and project plans together.
    • The deadline was close, but we managed to get all of them submitted in time.
    • I just want to say thank you to all of the project leaders and contributors that worked on these grant proposals this week.
    • They are very time consuming, and I am grateful we all tackled them on as a team.
    • Please see the Project Funding Updates section below for a more detailed look at each proposal.
