OWASP Global Projects Report

Currently Working On

  • Active Project Audit
    • The Project Audit is now complete.
    • I reached out to every project leader listed in our inventory, and asked them to confirm the status of their project.
    • The majority of our Leaders responded, and their project activity status was marked accordingly.
    • Those that did not respond were sent 3 messages before their project was marked inactive.
    • Due to the audit, the number of active OWASP Projects in our inventory went down from 169 to 132.
    • I have also created an OWASP Project Leader Mailing List, and I added all of our confirmed active Leaders to it.
    • The next audit will take place on February 2014.
  • Women in AppSec: AppSec USA 2013
    • This week, I met with Dawn-Marie Hutchinson, Head of Information Security at Urban Outfitters.
    • We spoke about her participation in the Women in AppSec Panel.
    • Everything is ready to go on her end, and she will reach out to us closer to the date with any logistical questions she may have.
    • Additionally, the Women in AppSec Team are still putting together a selection committee to help review and select the winning candidates.
    • Women in AppSec Program Selection Criteria: 1st Draft.
    • 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.
  • Fundraising & Grant Writing Intern
    • 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.
  • Projects in Salesforce
    • 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.
