Dave

Please find below a brief summary of the GIC for the OWASP Board
meeting later today.

New members
---------------------

Following the summit in Washington DC, we are pleased to welcome Joe
Bernik, Alexander Fry and Yiannis Pavlosoglou to the committee.  GIC
member Eoin Keary has also been elected as an OWASP board member -
congratulations.

Dave Wichers was appointed as the GIC board representative at OWASP
board meeting on 1 December 2009, replacing Tom Brennan who has moved
to the global chapters committee.

Key recent/current work
----------------------------------

1. Daniel Philpott and Rex Booth have led a team of people undertaking
a review of NIST SP 800-37r1 FPD.  They provided 73 comments and
received a very warm response from the head of FISMA efforts at NIST.

2. Following discussions by Dinis Cruz with ENISA people at IBWAS09
Madrid, Dinis arranged a conference call to discuss possibilities for
collaboration.  As a result of this CW will work with the OWASP Cloud
‐ 10 Project to contribute to the development of Common Assurance
Metrics for ENISA's Cloud Computing Information Assurance Framework.

http://www.enisa.europa.eu/act/rm/files/deliverables/cloud-computing-information-assurance-framework?searchterm=cloud

[Note there was also a separate request to help with ENISA's mobile
applications project - one expert from OWASP with relevant expertise
to contribute 5-10 days to the project from Jan to Sept 2010 -
probably not a GIC action?]

3. A Testimonials page is being prepared with Sebastien Deleersnyder -
once we have 3-4 initial testimonials, an invitation for more will be
sent to the OWASP Leaders list.

4. Initial contact has been made with the UK's CESG at CrestCon in December.

5. A response was made to NIST IR 7628 Draft Smart Grid Cyber Security
Strategy and Requirements.

Tuesday 5th January to discuss the committee's aims for the year.  We
will provide a briefing for the next newsletter tomorrow.
