Congratulations Kostas!!!

Great work. Maybe you can explain to the OWASP leaders how you have managed
to involve the government, as this work can be extrapolated to other

In my case, the Catalonian Government (www.gencat.cat) also refers to OWASP
in several public documents, and our projects are taken into account when
assessing and deciding on a provider.. For example:

- Specifications of recruitment files (page 138):

- Activity report (page 65):

- Promoting a new web portal (page 12):

All this makes our work seen in a serious and professional, thus gaining
prestige in our country.

We could make a sharing of the actions taken to involve governments. Surely we
can all contribute our grain of sand. :-)
