To Do List (no owner)

  • Create OWASP Summit Powerpoint presentation for distribution at OWASP Chapter meetings and presentation at OWASP NYC Conference (please check one initial example here)
  • Figure out how to setup an OWASP conference call , and book one for the next couple days
  • Create a message for Managers and non-technical professionals who might still be interested in the conference (following Brandi's comments)
"I am interested in application security BUT I am not a technical developer--I am a manager of a team inside the security group who now has to think about appsec.
"... I have run into a few folks like this in my travels around ... and I see very clearly how this peripheral audience has great interest in what we offer but looks at the listing 
of talks and does not see a good path of how to be involved.  We even see this at chapter meetings here in ...--execs and managers come out when there is a wider net around the talk. ...
  • Contact the leader of the OWASP Portuguese chapter and get them involved in the Summit
  • Support the Key Working Session: OWASP_Advisory_Board . The first step is to sort out who will be the first set of OAB members
  • Support the Key Working Session: ISWG:_Browser_Security . The first step is to get Arshan to complete the action plan so that we start contacting all major Browser developers (Kuai Hinojosa - I will work with Arshan on this)
  • Support the key Working Session: ISWG:_Web_Application_Framework_Security . The first step is to get Arshan to complete the action plan so that we start contacting all major Web Framework developers
  • Contact the OWASP Top 10 leaders and contributors to get them to start working on the action plan for their Working Session at the Summit [[1]]
  • Sort out a solution for remote dial-in for contributors that are not able to go to the Summit. There needs to be a technological solution (Skype?, equipment required on the day?) together with a process (where will people dial-in?) and people (who will participate? (I like the idea that people have to pre-register before the event, so that we keep track on who is going where (maybe we can even dial out (Skype) from the Summit, or only give the name of the Skype account used to the remote people who participate)

Completed Tasks (with links to work done)

  • Create OWASP letter to University of Algarve regarding partnership - Eduardo Neves , Josh P (Status: Done and waiting feedback from University of Algarve)
