2012 The Year of Software Security

Committee Chairs,

Now that budgets have been passed, please take the time this week to review and EDIT the page to update your respective committee members: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Global_Committee_Pages

As we kick off 2012 everyone has resolutions now is a good time to reconfirm active individual participation and to allow those that wish to pass the torch or transfer to other committees to do so.

OWASP Project/Chapter leaders:

To join a global committee, the process is VERY EASY simply self-nominate, then ask your peers in your region (example Latin America, North America, APAC, etc..) to support your efforts as a regional voice in the continued evolution of OWASP Foundation: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/How_to_Join_a_Committee

The committees purpose should be looked at as focused task forces establishing a framework with for all community members to utilize focused on global missions around things such as:

- Quality Offerings (Projects/Education)

- Marketing / Public Relations OWASP (Connections)

- Gathering Industry Requirements and Collaboration (Industry)

- Continued Regional Growth (Chapters)

- Global Events and Training (Conferences)

- Setting Value and Governance (Membership)

So we need people from different parts of the world to bring perspectives and contribute the most precious resource professional time.

2012 is the year of Software Security -- there is no doubt from headline news to start-up companies around the world that software and its security is a important part of the global fabric.

Join Us!
