Consulting Services


in security means:
  • Cheaper - most "advanced", "intelligent", "heuristic", "visionary", or "next gen" offerings are very expensive burnt offerings. The illuminaries behind such ventures know that their offering is of poor quality or doesn't deliver in line with the price tag, but they don't care. They paid off the VC and then some, and can now be found on a beach somewhere nice.
  • We seek to help clients who are interested in saving money and also sleeping better at night. There's plenty of consultancies who will help use your security budget (therein help to get a higher budget in the next financial year), if cheaper is not what you seek.
  • Recent high profile incidents, such as Wannacry, are defeatable with back-to-basics tech from 1995. You probably already have the means to manage risks from ransomware and other such threats.
  • Of course not all new concepts are duds. Some are worth resource investment, and we will help you with those.

Aug. 24, 2023, 11:30 p.m.


Like the catchy title?

Anyway - here's a few cheeky scripts for testing a handful (for now) of aspects of the CIS Benchmarks 2.0 for Azure. You have to populate the subscriptions.txt file for each.
