OWASP Global Projects Report

Currently Working On

  • Determining Active Project Status
    • This is a status update on this initiative.
    • I have completed the first round of requests for all Flagship, Labs, and Incubator projects.
    • I am now going through the list, and e-mailing the non-responsive Leaders once again.
    • Today, I have gone ahead and re-sent my request for a 3rd time to un-responsive Leaders.
    • If I do not get a reply by Friday, 26th of July, then I will mark the project as inactive.
    • The same process will be used for the unresponsive Leaders of Incubator projects.
  • Fundraising Intern
    • I am starting the process of recruiting a fundraising Intern for our grant research and writing initiatives.
    • I will be making the internship opportunity live by next week Monday.
    • I am looking for a student or recent graduate to help with grant research, writing, and volunteer coordination.
  • Project Event Modules: Information Wiki Page
    • I have created a How to Host an OWASP Projects Event Module page for our regional conference planners.
    • The information on the wiki page describes the different types of project event modules that we offer support for.
    • Additionally, readers can get more information on what it takes to add one of these event modules to the conference offering.
    • The goal of this page is to give readers an overview of how to engage our OWASP Project Leaders with activities that bring value to conference attendees as well as our Leaders.
  • Project Summit: AppSec USA 2013
    • I continue to plan the logistics for the project summit taking place at AppSec USA, this year.
    • I continue to gather estimates, flight, and roadmap details from Leaders.
    • We are still finalizing travel arrangements and timetables for each project.
    • I hope to finalize the planning for this module, soon.
  • Women in AppSec: AppSec USA 2013
    • The team is still in the fundraising stage; however, we are now accepting applications.
    • We have raised $500.00 via the OWASP Boston Chapter.
    • We have also raised $500.00 thanks to the OWASP Long Island Chapter.
    • Lastly, iSEC Partners have donated $3,000.00 to the Program.
    • We are only $2,000.00 from our goal this year.
    • Women in AppSec Application Form.
    • The application deadline is Monday, September 09, 2013 at 5pm GMT.
    • If you know of anyone who might be interested in sponsoring $2,000.00 to the Program, please reach out to me and let me know.
  • Personal Development
    • I am still taking my online course from Coursera.
    • The course topic is Information Security and Risk Management in Context.
    • I hope to be done in a few weeks.
  • Daily Project based queries and requests
    • This has not changed much since I began the post: questions are very similar in nature.
    • Global AppSec questions.
    • Funding queries.
    • Travel availability.
    • Project based administrative help.
    • Project status information.
    • Several project donations questions.
    • Marketing questions.
    • Grant funding questions.
    • OWASP Social Media Updates.
    • What's happening with projects, questions.
