Dear UK Chapters

This week, the Information Commissioner's Office launched their
consultation process for the Personal Information Online Code of
Practice.  The OWASP Industry Committee is coordinating an official
response from OWASP and would be pleased to receive any suggestions or
comments for inclusion.

This is not a technical document, and is most likely to be read in
organisations without their own security, compliance or data
protection staff.  Some extracts from page 7 of the draft document:

   "...build in security and privacy from the very start..."
   "...if your website offers auto-completion..."
   "...review your security arrangements on a regular basis..."
   "... assess the risks of a security breach..."

Further details at:


If you have any comments, perhaps email them to me directly, and we
will create a draft response and circulate that.


Colin Watson
Global Industry Committee
