Hi Gregg,

Please read email below.

I think you as the leader of the OWASP iMas project is one of the best
candidates to answer this question ;-)

> 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
> title)
> 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.
