  • Involve people to adopt OWASP

Survey: should we set up a local survey to interview the CSO of local Companies about the adoption of OWASP Guidelines in they company? Should be interesting for OWASP to know how many companies adopt OWASP and also to know the Return of Security Investment (ROSI) related the implementation of security process in the Software Development Life Cycle (Secure Design, Threat Modeling, Code Review, Web Application Penetration Testing)?

  • Involve media
