Heise is offering IT Security consulting for free. But should you trust them?

 

 

 

 

Heise created a portal for companies to assess their IT security.

Details can be found here: https://www.heise-consulter.de/ 

You don’t have to register to take part of the survey which assesses your company’s security.

If you want anonymity, check this page.

It is important to mention who sponsored the initiative: Sophos, Baramundi, GateProtect, Fortinet, Microsoft, Telekom and others. So, I think we can expect a not-so-independent opinion about your security standpoint. But, hey, it is better than nothing !

However, the first thing you see when you go to the page is this:

heise-consulter

 

Come on Heise… you have good sponsors, do a proper testing.

The funny thing is that the problem above occurs only when using Chrome and IE.

Firefox doesn’t report anything strange with the certificate.
