Experience Level: Intermediate
I am independent penetration tester. A penetration test is a method of evaluating the security of a computer system or network by simulating an attack from a malicious source, known as a Black Hat Hacker, or Cracker. I specialize in external penetration tests or attacks from the Internet. While I prefer network and host penetration tests, I will do website or web application penetration tests as well.

This means that my clients can be anywhere in the world. Therefore, there is no limitation on the location where you can find potential business. However, only certain sizes and types of companies would be interested in a penetration test. They would have to have computer systems on the Internet such as firewalls, VPN devices, email servers, web servers, etc and must also be a sufficient size to afford the cost of the test. This can range anywhere from $5,000 to $120,000 per test. It is very important for any sales agents that I use to be very knowledgeable of not only information systems but also information systems security in order to make these kinds of sales happen. Also, keep in mind that I speak English as my primary language and this will be a limiting factor.

Your goal will be to find me businesses that are would have a need for this type of testing, be interested in having this sort of testing done, and can afford to pay the going rate for this type of testing. When you do find them, you will arrange a meeting between them and me. It is very important on who you contact to pursue this. Only certain individuals within an organization can be approached for this type of service. The individual must be management level, has the budget for the level of expenditure involved, and also authorized to sign a contract. This means the individual will mostly be at the director level or of equivalent responsibility.

I will meet with all prospective clients in order to get an idea of the scope of the work involved and any requirements that they may have. Due to the remote nature of the work, these meetings will occur online through a site such as GoToMeeting. After we are able to meet, which will most likely be several times, a proposal will be sent to them. Should they accept the proposal, a contract would be signed.

Once a contract is signed and payment is received from them, which happens before any work commences, I will pay you your commission. The commission will paid at a rate of six percent of the contract value.

My target for this year is $50,000 in new business. This would make the commission $3,000 in total. This can be done in parts or all at once. If you are able to secure five contracts for $10,000, ten for $5,000, or one for $50,000 it does not matter. Either way would be fine. Commission will be paid as it is accumulated.

If you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them. If this sounds like something that you are interested in doing, and you feel that you would be successful at, please let me know. Before you answer, please keep in mind, commission is only paid after contracts are signed and I receive payment from the client. There will not be any pre-payment of commission. If there are no contracts signed, there is no commission.

Please reply with your rate, experience, and areas of strength.
