"We are uncovering better ways of developing
software by doing it and helping others do it.
Through this work we have come to value:

Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
Working software over comprehensive documentation
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
Responding to change over following a plan

That is, while there is value in the items on
the right, we value the items on the left more."
Agile Manifesto

They aren't looking for latest IT fad. They aren't looking for the cool technology. They simply aren't excited or motivated by it.

 

They are interested in how to achieve thier long term business goals.

Case Study 1

 

I was asked by a client to evaluate the security stance of their new website (PHP, MySQL, AWS). Within minutes I has established a variety of vunerabilities which would allow their entire corporate database to be extracted.

 

Within hours we had a tactical plan inplace to resolve. Over the coming weeks, I worked with their development team through a resolution plan.

Case Study 2

 

Following professional Vunerability scan, my client asked me to investigate two high priority issues.

 

Through detailed analysis and mediation with the Security provider; I was able to demonstrate to everyones satisfation that the issues where false positives.

Case Study 3

 

Following automated "Bot" abuse of sign up promotions, a client asked me to prepare a report on mitigation actions.

 

I produced a report walking through how an attacker could produce the "Bot" along with counter-meassures (and potential further attacks an attacker could undertake).
