Currently Working On

  • OWASP Marketing
    • I am managing the OWASP Marketing deliverables for the foundation.
    • I am managing the relationship with the Marketing company hired to deliver some materials for us.
    • The Ops Team and I discussed our current relationship with them, and the deliverables they have provided us.
    • We made decisions on these pieces, and recommendations on creative brief adjustments.
    • We met with the Marketing company this week, and communicated our decisions to them.
    • I am currently coordinating a webinar with the Marketing company, to communicate out their recommendations to us to our community.
  • Projects in SalesForce
    • All existing project meta data has been entered into SalesForce.
    • The challenge now is implementing a workflow that will help me manage the data and the relationships between each piece of information.
    • I am currently working with Kate to figure out a short term solution for this.
    • The long term solution is to build SalesForce portals that will allow project leaders the ability to self manage their data.
  • Women in Security Event Module
    • I met with several volunteers at the New York City volunteer meeting for AppSec USA 2013.
    • Some of these volunteers are interested in bringing the Women in Security event module back to AppSec USA this year.
    • I helped collect volunteer information, created a mailing list, and I am managing the conversation to help get this event module to the conference this year.
    • We are currently developing guidelines and entry requirements for new candidates.
  • Projects at AppSec EU
    • Several members of the Ops Team and I met with Dirk, the local events planner for AppSec EU 2013.
    • We decided on bringing the Open Source Showcase, and the OWASP Projects Track (OPT) to the conference this year.
    • Dirk already has speakers lined up for the OPT, and I am putting together a "Call for Entries" for the OSS.
  • 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.
