Education is the most powerful weapon used to change the world

Having trained thousands of students on the art of network and application exploitation for the past decade, it's safe to say we enjoy teaching others how to own networks and applications. Our courses are developed from the work we perform for clients, so that you get a better understanding of how to exploit real-world scenarios.

Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT)

Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT)

Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) is publicly available information including radio, television, newspapers, journals, the Internet, commercial databases, videos, graphics, and drawings. We can mine and correlate this information to profile a person or company in order to find or track an individual, look for affiliations or look for relationships between people or companies.
