[BOARD] Ken Armstrong has joined the Editorial Board



Ken Armstrong of CanCERT and EWA-Canada has joined the Editorial Board
in a technical role.  His addition helps to reduce several gaps in
Board membership.  As a member of an incident response team, he will
help to round out that particular perspective of CVE.  His experience
with the Canadian government adds a government-based perspective to
the Board.  In addition, the membership of another Canadian
organization brings the Editorial Board one step closer to being a
truly international organization.  Below is a short bio:
