[BOARD] Tom Stracener has joined the Editorial Board
Tom Stracener of Hiverworld, Inc. has joined the Editorial Board. He
has been the lead in the development of Hiverworld's vulnerability
database, wrestling with a number of issues (e.g. content decisions)
that the Board has been discussing with respect to CVE. My
conversations with him (and other Hiverworld personnel) indicate a
strong understanding of some of the fundamental challenges that this
community faces with respect to sharing vulnerability information and
conducting effective risk assessment.
