Project Division Updates

Currently Working On

  • Black Hat EU 2013
    • I attended the Black Hat EU conference this week.
    • I helped set up and manage our OWASP Booth for two days.
    • I was also able to attend the Netherlands Chapter meeting.
    • Martin Knobloch, Dennis Groves, and Anil Pazvant volunteered at the event as well.
    • For more details, please read my Black Hat EU 2013 Post Conference Report.
  • OWASP University Challenge & CTF at Global AppSecs
    • Martin Knobloch and I were able to meet and talk about how to bring University Challenge and the Capture the Flag event modules to AppSec EU Research, USA, and Latam.
    • There were some concerns over space availability for these event modules.
    • We proposed having the OSS, CTF, and University Challenge event modules share a room.
    • We are waiting to hear back from Dirk regarding logistics.
  • OWASP at Hack in the Box: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
    • I had the fantastic opportunity to meet with the CEO of Hack in the Box, Mr. Dhillon Kannabhiran.
    • We spoke about a possible partnership between OWASP and Hack in the Box.
    • We currently have a booth for the Amsterdam event, and I negotiated a booth for us at the Kuala Lumpar, Malaysia event as well.
    • Logistics are currently being developed and planned.
  • OWASP Asia Leadership Outreach Project
    • This Asia Leadership Outreach Project came about during the discussion Dhillon and I had about OWASP at the Kuala Lumpar, Hack in the Box event.
    • He mentioned that he has offered OWASP a booth at the Kuala Lumpar, Hack in the Box event for a few years.
    • However, the local OWASP chapter volunteers have not been able to represent OWASP very well at his conference.
    • We suggested developing an OWASP Malaysia and Singapore outreach project that would involve a workshop, and the co-running of the Hack in the Box booth by members of both chapters.
    • Dhillon agreed that developing a workshop with more experienced leaders giving primary direction, will help the Malaysian and Singaporean chapters understand their responsibilities at similar outreach events.
    • I am currently putting together a proposal for this project.
  • 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.
