"If you're outsourcing your technology development or
contracting additional support for your technology team,
you must consider Chris Hobbs as your partner. In addition
to being one of the best developers I have ever worked
with, he approaches all his engagements with care,
passion, and a high standard of excellence. Chris has been
and remains an invaluable member of our GPA team both as
our former Chief Technology Officer and as our lead
Technology Contractor today. He is a trusted advisor and a
champion for our mission, our business, and our success. I
highly recommend Chris to any organization from nonprofit
to startup to corporate."

"The City of Siloam Springs has contracted Christopher
Hobbs for annual network and physical security audits
since 2015. Chris always treats us to a complete and very
thorough service involving weeks of preparation followed
by clearly outlined penetration test. He sets schedules
and makes sure the appropriate staff are aware of his
activities. Per prior agreement, unless he finds a
serious security flaw, he will remain unseen until the
testing period is complete. At that point he provides a
very detailed report that includes well researched and
easy to understand recommendations for tightening up our
network security. Of note is the social engineering
portion of the test. His staff will attempt to gain access
to predetermined locations via interaction with our
employees. Because of this, we've been able to educate our
staff and better secure data belonging to our customers.
During the post testing phase, he provides one on one or group reports and is happy to answer any questions in a way that is easy for all staff to understand. I highly recommend Chris for security testing."
- Sam Dee, I.T. Manager - City of Siloam Springs
"I began working with Christopher Hobbs in 2016 when I
needed a third-party audit of a website API and database I
was having developed. This was a critical step since we
were collecting health information and data integrity was
a top priority. After having multiple organizations
either give me bloated service quotes or outright state
they would be unable to meet the stringency of my
requirements, Chris stepped in. He was polite, prompt and
professional every step of the way even though we had a
number of delays and set-backs on our own end through no
fault of Chris. In the end, his audit was wonderfully
thorough and the feedback we received gave us an even
better product than we started with, leading to a secure
API we still have in use today. I cannot recommend Chris
enough to anyone needing similar coding and development
services and would gladly work with him again if given the
opportunity. Thanks, Chris!"
