+1 NB. 

I've had the pleasure to work hand in hand with Marina, Michael, and Ragashree on several projects across the different areas of focus for the Security TAG. The three of them are exceptionally talented and possess a great deal of security expertise. They are innate leaders who are making an impact contributing in more ways than one; maintaining software, creating content, and building community.
