OWASP Global Connector November 26, 2013

Global OWASP Connector - November 26, 2013

2013 Project Summit

I just wanted to take some time to thank all of the OWASP Project Leaders that participated in last week's project talks, and the OWASP Project Summit at AppSec USA in New York.  Both activities were great successes.  They could not have been as terrific without your hard work, dedication, and contributions.  I hope to see you again next year! Samantha Groves

Proposed Change to Corporate Membership Model

Comment Period Open

The board voted to move to a tiered corporate membership model.  This enables organizations to support OWASP at a variety of levels.  We are still working on the details of the updated membership matrix.  We are seeking the input and feed back from current and potential corporate supporters on the proposed model.

Please take a few minutes to review the proposal and provide us with your feedback.  You can email us at support@owasp.org
