Hi Matt,

thanks for bringing this on the board list.

I agree with Matt in that I see no problem at this point to have a 
conversation with RSA on potential cooperation. To my knowledge we have 
in the past not spend a lot of money on that, and I see no reason to 
change that.

I also agree that we should prioritise our activities to maximise our 
outreach and strategic goals.

Therefore, I would like to encourage reopening communication with RSA to 
explore opportunities that are of interest for OWASP to spread our mission.

I suggest that we put this item for discussion and conclusion at our 
next board meeting on June-14.

Best regards, Tobias
