Currently Working On

  • OWASP Projects at AppSec USA & EU
    • I received the go-ahead to start planning the project event modules for AppSec USA.
    • The local event planning team decided to have the Project Leader Workshop and the OWASP Projects Summit.
    • The Project Leader Workshop is a three hour event module that brings together current and potential OWASP project leaders to discuss project related issues and topics.
    • The OWASP Project Summit is a smaller version of the much larger OWASP Summits. This event module gives our project leaders the opportunity to showcase their project progress, and have attendees sit down and work on project tasks during the event.
    • I will start preparations for these two modules next week.
    • The AppSec EU project modules are still under discussion.
    • I will reach out to Dirk on May 17th, 2013 to discuss his decision.
  • Determining Active Project Status
    • This is a status update on this initiative.
    • I am reaching out to each leader individually to confirm these pieces of data for all 154 projects.
    • Flagship projects are completed.
    • Labs are completed.
    • Incubator projects are in the 2nd of 4 phases.
  • European Commission Grant Opportunity: Proposal Status
    • Seba and I have finished our work on the OWASP section of the European Commission grant proposal.
    • The grant opportunity has the potential to help a hand full of OWASP projects with resources and funds.
    • Seba and I presented our internal proposal to proceed to the Board of Directors last week, and it was approved.
    • The proposal has now been submitted to the European Commission.
    • We expect to hear back from the EU Commission with a decision towards the end of 2013.
  • Women in Security: AppSec USA 2013
    • The team is currently working on putting together documentation for the Sponsorship document.
    • The plan is to reach out to different organisations for sponsorship.
    • You can find more information on the AppSec USA website.
    • We are currently attempting to raise $3,000.00 for each winner.
    • We plan on having 2 winners for 2013.
    • The total amount we are requesting is $6,000.00 to cover conference fee, training fee, travel and accommodation for both winners.
