October Connector

October 2018


Letter from the Chairman

Dear OWASP Community,
We are quickly approaching AppSec USA the premier event for the application and software security community.  I hope that you have decided to attend!  If you haven't registered yet, please do so we still have seats available for our exceptional hands-on training and for the many talks being hosted on Thursday and Friday.

The AppSec Global conferences hosted by OWASP are created by the community for the community.  This is your place to come together and talk with colleagues, learn new techniques and meet new colleagues working in software security.    We hope you will join us and enjoy a week of learning and networking.

While we are focused on AppSec USA, we continue to encourage you to become active in OWASP, supporting projects, leading chapters and being a member in good standing.  We value your support and hope that you value OWASP and its contribution to software/application security.

I look forward to seeing you soon in San Jose, California for AppSec USA!!
Your Chairman,
Martin Knobloch
OWASP Chairman of the Board of Directors
Voting opens October 8, 2018, for OWASP Global Board of Directors
       3 seats are open for this election
OWASP Foundation Staff Announcement:

Dear OWASP Community,
We are pleased to announce that Lisa Jones has decided to come on board full-time with OWASP as Manager of Sponsorship and Projects.  While consulting with OWASP over the last several months;  Lisa has been very helpful and hands on. She has willingly accepted and performed well on all types of tasks and duties. Her technical background and willingness to do whatever needs to be done blends well with the OWASP way of working.

While she is currently focusing on AppSec USA,  after the conference she will direct more of her energy to support Kelly with sponsorship fulfillment, logistics, collections and other duties allowing Kelly more time to focus on selling and facilitating new relationships.

In addition, Lisa will work with Harold to support the administrative duties for projects, assisting him in all areas ensuring that the project leaders have OWASP's full attention and support.

Please join me in welcoming Lisa Jones to OWASP.

Best Regards,
Karen Staley
Executive Director
