OWASP Project of the Month


  • AppSec APAC 2014
    • I spent all of last week in Tokyo, Japan helping with the OWASP AppSec APAC 2014 global conference.
    • Laura Grau and I were the only two staff members that attended the event.
    • The OWASP Japan chapter put on an amazing conference this year.
    • It was excellent to see the team work so efficiently to put on the event.
    • There were a few lessons learned, but overall it was an excellent experience.
    • I primarily helped run the merchandize store at the event, and I participated in the Women in AppSec panel.
  • Women in AppSec: AppSec APAC 2014
    • The Women in AppSec program at AppSec APAC 2014 was absolutely excellent.
    • I have to thank the OWASP Japan team and especially Okada-san and Dracea-san for making the panel session such a success.
    • I am taking lessons learned from this session, and I am going to apply it to other conferences if they choose to run the program.
    • Our winner was Hiromi Tsuchiya, and our runner-up was Ikue Yamanishi.
  • Graphic Designer Update
    • We have finalized the last interviews for our part-time graphic design role.
    • Our final candidate has now been selected.
    • We are in the process of putting together an offer for our selected candidate.
    • We hope to have the new designer start very soon.
  • 2014 Project Summit
    • I have been working on getting some ideas for summit sessions from the community for our 2014 Project Summit.
    • The summit will be taking place in Cambridge, UK this year in June.
    • I currently have one session scheduled for the summit lead by Kostas.
    • I have a few other community members interested in contributing session ideas as well.
    • I am working closely with them to hash out their ideas.
    • I will keep working on this effort.
  • 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 donation questions.
