2 OWASP AppSec Europe New Manifesto / Vision Enabling organizations to develop, maintain, and purchase applications that they can trust Consolidate all OWASP Projects in one strong vision Focus OWASP efforts in one positive and focused target Create a package that companies will want to buy (i.e. join as members) Build on past sucessess

3 OWASP AppSec Europe OWASP is about a community who cares Built on great foundations built by our contributors Independent Focused on creating a better workd Great peer to peer participation Emphasis on local community building

4 OWASP AppSec Europe Objectives Organize OWASPs world Deliver quality products, of highest standard, usable by small and large companies Professionalize OWASP delivery More support for projects (both local and global) Maintain and Improve OWASPs brand Improve the quality of the web applications that we use everyday

5 OWASP AppSec Europe Today The current software / web development process is a mess No standards or Metrics Little understanding of the threats Small number of attacks create comfort zone Strong business model to reward Features and Performance Weak business model to reward security Server based code creates false sense of security due to very limited per-review Shoot the messenger practices (UKs Dan and US xyz guy) make it even worse

6 OWASP AppSec Europe Today II Strong awareness that something is wrong Weak awareness (and agreement) of what to do about it Security Industry is part of the problem (Snake Oil sellers and wild marketing claims) Too much money is being made today by security vendors (with the current insecure world) Market-Leaders are only marginally better than everybody else (or even less when adjusted for their market-share) Clients dont know what to ask for and how to commercially reward good vendors

7 OWASP AppSec Europe Today III Current Security Model is based on the: Lack of attackers (as in Quantity) Attackers skills Unsophisticated Malicious business Model (i.e. difficulty to monetize Digital Assets) Plenty of Low Hanging Fruit still available (Phishing, Spam, sale of Boot Nets, Identity Theft) Basically we are betting that the gradual security improvements that we are making everyday are bigger than the attacker's numbers, skills and business model

8 OWASP AppSec Europe Today IV What organizations need, is to be able to: develop, or maintain, or purchase applications that they can trust We need Assurance that Applications will: do what they are designed for are securely coded can be executed in secure Sandboxed environments will not dramatically increase the risk to our assets
