Subject: Information Risk Executive Council - Application Security


Dear Kate,


By way of introduction, my name is Sonny Kim, a research analyst at the
Information Risk Executive Council (http://irec.executiveboard.com
<http://irec.executiveboard.com/>  ). Our organization provides executive
education and best-practice research to Chief Information Security Officers
(CISO) at Fortune 500 companies.


As part of our ongoing research on approaches to securing software
development we have followed with great interest the developments at OWASP.
Further, in our conversations with our members, they have cited your
methodology and research as part of their application security programs.
Given these considerations, we would like to invite a speaker from your
group to join us as a guest panelist in a teleconference we are preparing
for Tuesday, January 13, 2009 at 11:00 am EST. 


In particular, we are focused on providing high-level strategic guidance on
how to embed security into the SDLC - from a roles, activities, and process
standpoint. We have found that while application developers generally are
very compliant with general security policies, they often suffer from
limited awareness of good coding practices. What we propose to discuss is
methods to heighten the priority of secure coding among this constituency.


Just to provide some logistics, our plan is for us to introduce the topic,
share research findings and provide a roadmap for discussion throughout the
call. We would then turn over to a speaker from OWASP for a 15-20 minute
presentation (including some time for Q&A). We typically host 200+
participants on the line and have found that previous guest panelists have
enjoyed the moderated discussion and insight into the challenges faced by a
diverse audience - across various industries and countries.


Please let me know if a speaker from your organization is available to join
us, or if you have questions about our program or this teleconference. You
can contact me by replying to this email or by phone at 1-571-303-4931.  I
look forward to speaking with you soon.


Thank you for your time and consideration.
