Jim and Fabio,


I could  use your guidance and collaboration on this effort.


Perhaps we can have a quick call to formalize our approach and potential topics. Ultimately it would be great to coordinate with the Summit in Sweden in June


I would love to have all the CISO’s discuss emerging trends in the AppSec space and then take questions from the attendees in Sweeden.


Just some thoughts.

Your text look great.  

However, there seems to be a potentially parallel effort going on in the Global Industry committee.  I don't know if you get the GIC notes?  There seems to be an initiative to create a CISO level group from the financial industry, which Joe has indicated he would assist with.  The notes I have on this follow.

If Joe and others are putting together a CISO panel, should we perhaps support that effort, and not put together another group?  Or would another group (perhaps more technical, or a different level) add any value?

Let us know what you think.  Hopefully Joe can fill us in, as well.  We can then close the circle with Tom and Colin Watson.

You can reach me at this email (jerry.kickenson at verizon.net, or at jerry.kickenson at swift.com).

Best regards,

Hi Joe
That sounds of interest.  Is it worth writing up some notes proposing
its scope, objectives and the resources required?  It's often down to
us as individuals to do the legwork.

I sent this on December 3rd but it must have been bounced...Jerry,

Here this is what I prepared. Feel free to cc Joe and me on your message to Tom.


The purpose of the OWASP Financial Services Sub Group is to define and rank requirements from the industry for OWASP to address and consider as projects to support the maturation of software security practices for the industry.


The Financial Services SIG will reach out to selected leaders in software security programs and facilitate a consensus based process for defining requirements and priorities for potential OWASP project work that will directly benefit financial service firms. The initial deliverable from this SIG will be a list of potential project requirements in rank order with descriptive information available for each one. 


OWASP has been a vital and essential part of the promotion of best practices in software security and growing the awareness of the need for mature software security practices among the development community. This effort will produce a list of potential project requirements that reflect the financial service industry's needs to improve awareness and capabilities leveraged by software developers through OWASP projects and engagement. 


Please give me your email address.

Hope you had a great holiday. 

Do you think you'll have time to draft a mission/purpose statement for the OWASP financial services SIG we can pass by Tom? I can probably make some time over the next week or so if you are too busy.

Let me know what you think.
