Comments (on the PDF version):

Page 3: At the end of the first paragraph under "Log Generation and Availability", you have "... is often required for security purposes, (audit log), sometimes with alerts ..." - I don't think you meant to put commas around the parenthetical "audit log"...

Page 3: Paragraph starting with "Although the most secure approach" doesn't finish the thought. I think combining the first two sentences makes it clearer, e.g.:

Although the most secure approach is for devices to continually send out log information to an external repository as events occur, this is often neither practical nor justifiable.

Page 7: Question 6 is multiple choice, right?

Page 8: Question 7 could also be multiple choice for a, b, or c... My recommendation would be to break this into two questions: "If you are implementing logging, where is it kept?" and "How to you implement billing?" with "Logs", "Simple copy count", "other", and "not implementing billing".

Otherwise shaping up very nicely - thanks for working on this, Bill!
