The Open Security Foundation (OSF) is an internationally recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit public organization seeking senior leaders capable of providing broad-based perspective on information security, business management and fundraising to volunteer for an Advisory Board. The Advisory Board will provide insight and guidance when developing future plans, an open forum for reviewing community feedback and a broader view when prioritizing potential new services.
OSF was founded in 2004 and has been operated by information security enthusiasts since its inception. We exist to empower all types of organizations by providing knowledge and resources so that they may properly protect, detect and mitigate information security risks. We believe that security information and services should be easily accessible for all who have the need for such information. We promote open collaboration between companies and individuals, provide unbiased information to uphold educated decision-making, and attempt to eliminate the need for redundant works while striving to improve organizations’ overall security posture.
Prospective Advisory Board members should show an ability and willingness to:
- Participate actively in all meetings of the Advisory Board (2 times per year and as otherwise needed)
- Represent OSF and its mission to organizations and the general public
- Review and provide feedback for proposed OSF plans
- Chair and serve as members of committees
- Assist in locating and developing funding sources for OSF
