Purchase Details

License Terms. Please Download and review

License is either single entity or multiple entities. For single entity, you may use the chart for one organization's SOC build. For MSSPs or consulting firms, a minimum payment must be made per organization for each use.

Pricing is sliding scale. Minimum of $35, maximum of $5,000. It is difficult to specify the appropriate price because organizations vary substantially in how they will use this. I prefer to have the information available to organizations who need it. You can pay the minimum ($35) and if it provided substantial value, pay more later..

Note, purchase of the chart does not entitle the purchaser to consulting regarding use of the chart.

Note, no physical chart will be sent. An e-mail with the Gantt chart in Microsoft Project (mpp) file format will be sent. I send an email manually once I see the paypal notification, usually within 24 hours.
