Web Application Security Professionals Survey (July 2008)

It’s been a long while since I posted a webappsec survey, Oct 2007. So leading up to BlackHat seemed like an opportune time to hear from the community what they think about the hot button topics of the day. The questions are designed to expose various aspects of web application security industry we previously didn't know, understand, or fully appreciate – and maybe learn a thing or two about our peers in the process. As always the more people who submit data, the more representative it will be, and that means please share the link. All the past surveys have been quite revealing.

TAKE THE SURVEY



Guidelines
- Open to anyone working in, around, or near the web application security field.
- If a question doesn’t apply to you or you don’t want to answer, leave it blank.
- Comments in relation to any question are welcome. All data will be published.
- Submissions must be received by July 25, 2008 (1 week), results posted shortly thereafter.

Publishing & Privacy Policy
- Results based on aggregate data collected will be published.
- Absolutely no names or contact information will be released to anyone, though feel free to self publish your answers anywhere.

Very pointed questions, particularly that last one!

Jeremiah Grossman said...

Yep, did my best to have questions that got to the heart of the matter. Most were pretty good, some could have been better, overall the results are very interesting.

Black box testing makes me want to hit the entire industry over the head with a clue by four... then follow up with a repeated stabbing in the groin.

@ openfly, what do you mean

"Black box testing makes me want to hit the entire industry over the head with a clue by four... then follow up with a repeated stabbing in the groin."

--What's wrong w/ Black Box Testing?

As always, an interesting survey JG. I look forward to seeing the "comments" that people said even more than the actual results.

Jeremiah!

It's good to see new survey. Last one was in October, so time has come for new survey.

> I'll try for every 3 months or so from now on.
Man, I already heard that :-). This time try better.

> Submissions must be received by July 25, 2008 (1 week)
Jeremiah, one weak is not enough. Because I'm very busy man ;-). I come today (only just now found time) and survey was closed already. Better to give more time - for example in January 2007 it was for 9 days.
