Our Core Values

Always Building Trust – In order to achieve our mission, many people need to trust us with their most sensitive information… so that we can protect it from those with evil purposes.


Boundless Learning – To most efficiently succeed in our mission, we need people who see no bounds to their ability to learn, whether technical, psychological, professional, or otherwise.


Communicating with Clarity – What we do is hard to understand… but it’s critical to be understood for us to succeed.


Driven to Protect – At our core, we believe hackers are winning… and because of this, we are always on alert… observing weaknesses, teaching people, and fixing problems… knowing that the safety of those we care about is on the line.


Embracing Adaptability – It’s our job to assume the enemies have more funding, more people, and are able to learn at the speed of blur… therefore, we need to always be observing, analyzing, and willing to rebuild on a moment’s notice.
