comment What person should I write a penetration test report as?
I think it's really depends on the company. I remember when I was at school I was taught to use the passive voice for reports, then one day I took a class where I lost marks for using it and was told to use the active voice.

@nocomprende it's actually another problem with the question being asked, it speaks as if all OSs are the same, which they are not. Windows is one of the most bloated OSs.

comment Why would security cover things like natural disasters?
@gnasher729 you misunderstood: I said an employer is less likely to higher a security consultant rather than some sort of sort of construction worker for things like the roof or fire proofing.

@Burgi that's what I thought but when I said that in class everyone laughed and said it's for pedestrian safety.

@Josef wouldn't that require a background in carpentry or structural engineering, and be best left to those types of professionals? Plus feel free to stop using exclamation marks and bold letters.
