Home > About CWE > CWE/CAPEC Board  


The mission of the CWE/CAPEC Board is to set and promote the goals and objectives of the CWE/CAPEC Program to ensure the ongoing adoption, coverage, and quality of Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE™)/Common Attack Pattern Enumeration and Classification (CAPEC™).

Members of the CWE/CAPEC Board include Technical Implementers that provide input and guidance regarding the creation, design, review, maintenance, and applications of CWE/CAPEC entries; Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) who are domain experts in weakness and/or attack pattern fields and represent a significant constituency related to, or affected by, CWE/CAPEC; and Advocates who actively support and promote CWE/CAPEC throughout the community in a highly visible and responsible manner.

Through open and collaborative discussions, Board members provide critical input regarding domain coverage, coverage goals, operating structure, and strategic direction. All Board Meetings and Board Email List Discussions are archived for the community.
