What you need.
An independent expert partner to help maximise your understanding and optimise your architecture.
We never partner or receive sponsorship for any of our research – allowing us to be impartial, honest and focused. We never deviate from increasing our industry knowledge, that can help improve security spending or improve security vendor positioning. We ask the tough questions so you don’t have to.
You wouldn’t expect your medical practitioner to perform a procedure simply based on their expertise. You would want them trained, certified and assessed like any other industry expert. The Cyber Hut are experts. Trained in multi-disciplinary security sectors. We have the badges (and scars) to prove it.
You require a clear, strategic and influencing voice, for architecture design comments, independent thought leadership content or a conference key note. Clarity and direction help fulfil the tactics and implementation. The Cyber Hut are called upon as cyber security influencers.
A digital storefront experience for a range of independent applied research and advisory services on the global identity, access & cyber security industry.
A world where every digital interaction has a foundation of usability and security.
Research that is awesome.
The Cyber Hut (formerly Infosec Pro) was started in 2009, by Simon Moffatt. It is a leading research, insight and analysis resource, focusing on the market, design and architecture of the products and services that help keep information secure and available.
Cyber security is complicated. Threats continually evolve. Startups emerge and technology changes. The Cyber Hut provides a virtual analyst experience – deconstructing the industry analyst functions into bite sized chunks, accessible via a digital store front.
We’ve been there; got the security t-shirt.
Being qualified isn’t just to show we know what we’re talking about. It helps us to understand what is being asked of by the profession. It helps us to understand, what our clients are working towards, the language they use and the challenges they are facing.
We contribute back to the security community through talks, membership articles and standards.
