Here are the most interesting items that have come across our desks, laptops and phones this week. As always, EveryCloud has no known affiliation with any of these unless we explicitly state otherwise.

A Cheat Sheet

Sans Digital Forensics and Incident Response Cheat Sheets is a collection of assorted, handy incident response cheat sheets. It’s a helpful reference for commands, processes, tactics, tips, tools and techniques that was compiled by Sans DFIR, the experts in incident-response training.


A Website

EventSentry is a comprehensive, well-organized resource for Windows security events and auditing on the web. It allows you to see how events correlate using insertion strings and review the associated audit instructions. This was recommended by _deftoner_ as an “online DB where you can search for Windows Event Log by ID, OS, error code, etc. I do a lot of auditing on a big network thru event log IDs, and sometimes I found rare errors — and there is not a good DB with all of them. Not even Microsoft has one.”


A Free Tool

IIS Crypto allows administrators to enable or disable protocols, ciphers, hashes and key exchange algorithms on Windows Server 2008, 2012 and 2016. You can also reorder SSL/TLS cipher suites from IIS, implement best practices with a single click, create custom templates and test your website. Available in both command line and GUI versions. EOTFOFFTW tells us, “This tool has been very helpful in configuring SSL settings for Windows IIS servers.”


A Podcast

Risky Business is a weekly podcast that covers both the latest news and thoughtful, in-depth discussions with the top minds in the security industry. Hosted by award-winning journalist Patrick Gray, it is a terrific way to stay up to date on information security.


Another Free Tool

Ditto saves all your clipboard items so you can access them later. It works with anything that can be put on the clipboard — images, text, html and custom formats. The simple interface includes search and sync functions for ease of finding what you need. Thanks go to Arkiteck for suggesting this one!


Have a fantastic week and as usual, let me know any comments.
