Hello to OWASP Board list:

An opportunity has come up for an OWASP spokesperson to provide some
information to Info-Tech Research Group.  They is writing a report about
"Mobile App Security: Don’t expose your mobile apps in a vulnerable world –
cover your apps with the right secure development best practices".  (Long

If you are interested in participating as an OWASP Spokesperson, a sample
of their questions and the contact details are listed below.  Please
contact Mr. Wuytenberg if you would like to participate.

"Received the following inquiry via our Sales Force Customer Service
Contact form:
We are looking to interview an expert about this topic and were wondering
if there is someone at OWASP that would be able to add insight to our
report (Anyone that can speak at a business and technical level for mobile
app security). While we have provided a couple sample questions below, we
do not use a script to interview. The questions asked will depend on your
individual experience. The goal is to learn about what you’ve observed in
the space, and gain practical insights that we can share with our clients.

1. What trends are you seeing the mobile security space as it relates to
development practices?
2. How would you define a highly secured mobile application?
3. From our research, we found that improving security for a mobile app
from a dev perspective looks at techniques which focus on data handling,
caching and logging, and server side security. What specific development
techniques have you come across that have proven to increase the security
of the mobile app?
4. What do you think are the major challenges when it comes to testing
mobile apps for security today? What approaches do developers and testers
take to effectively address those challenges?

We would be attributing quotes to OWASP and the interviewee in the report
and list the company as a contributor to the research well. Do you think
this is something we can look in to? Ideally we’re hoping for an interview
by the end of July at the latest.

If you have absolutely any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to
call or email me.

Thank you very much.
