Welcome to AppSIC :: The Application Security Consortium

Lots of folks seem to have a malign hobby of founding security consortia, foundations, industry forums, etc.

Here is one more: AppSIC :: The Application Security Consortium: "The Application Security Industry Consortium is a community of security and technology experts united to establish and define the international cross-industry application security standards and measures"

Is this a real one, like WASC and OWASP, or a fake one, like SECMET and GAISP? Who knows...

It seems like the ones run by technical people survive (some thrive!) while others founded by those of more management pervasion seem to die off.
