Thank you for a successful AppSec EU, and for a productive board meeting
during the conference.
I wanted to pick up where we left off and do some work between now and the
August, some I would like some help with.
1. *OWASP Chapters: *While we have done some great strides in setting
the global events strategy, we need to provide the foundation and staff
some air cover in order for them to comfortable take those events on. In
order to have the same open conversations we have done for global events,
but for the chapters. I would recommend the following:
1. An initial conversation internally with the foundation on the
existing challenges and to document them
2. Present the challenges to the community, discuss potential
solutions in two/three meetings (AMER/EMEA/APAC time zone friendly calls).
3. Document the community feedback and a draft motion for the board
to discuss openly in the August Board meeting.
4. By the September board meeting the community would have had enough
time to provide feedback + for the board to have edited the motion enough
to vote on it.
5. *Ask from the board - *I have a habit of over committing, are
there board members that could help me and Andrew on this to lighten the
2. *OWASP Foundation Strategy: *I have taken a look at the strategy
Karen proposed *(See Link)*
having discussed it with Karen during AppSec EU we are both saying the
somethings which is good. The only point I would make is that it looks too
high level like mission/vision statements. Strategic plans would identify
clear items on *what* to execute on while business plan includes *how *to
execute what has been agreed on. Given that we are in July, for 2018 we
know the tactical issues that need to be worked on so I would recommend we
focus on 2019.
3. *Compliance Committee: * Greg is doing an amazing job on the
Compliance committee charter, I'm personally looking forward to voting on
it. I would also like to note that I'm also seeing some cases of "vigilante
justice", partially do to inaction so changes would be welcome here.
