Kind of surprised this number is so low honestly.

But, anyone on the board who works at a CNA, consider this please. He's 
handing out assignments on oss-sec, which in 2015, is kind of the wild 
west to a degree. This is not some researcher coming to your shop, 
disclosing an issue in your product, where you have the most expertise. 
Kurt is typically assigning IDs to an absurd amount of third-party 
libraries, many of which your company uses. Even if you don't know it.

So... welcome Kurt! I advocated for you to be on the board for almost 
three years, and I apologize in advance. =)
