The Global Industry Committee was created during the OWASP EU Summit in Portugal. The primary purpose of the Global Industry Committee is to work with industry executives to gather requirements from industry, work with Membership, Projects and others.

Mission Statement

To expand awareness of and promote the inclusion of software security best practices in Industry, Government, Academia and regulatory agencies. We will accomplish this through outreach; including presentations, development of position papers and collaborative efforts with other entities.
