Centers of Excellence

Researching Advanced Technologies and Emerging Threats to Stay Ahead of Attackers

Our Centers of Excellence (CoE's) serve as the nerve center for ongoing research and knowledge dissemination on critical platforms, technologies, and emerging threats. They yield ongoing methodology refinement, skills progression, and custom tools development allowing us to conduct specialized assessments and provide informed remediation advice for our clients.  

Additionally, insights developed by our experts are fed directly into our training courses to ensure they always contain the latest information on the threat landscape and defensive tactics. Each CoE is led by our foremost expert in that field covering the following platforms:


Automotive

Offensive and defensive research critical to the automotive industry including connected car hacking, software vulnerabilities, protocols, and communications

Mobile

Research and tools development for all major platforms (Android, iOS, Windows Mobile, and Blackberry), APIs, communication channels, and commonly-used hardware components

Cloud/Web

Security research on cloud infrastructure as well as the applications that run on those platforms, the APIs they use for integration and communication, and the technologies used to build them

DevOps

Aligning software development and IT operations teams with respect to security, using technologies, tools, and processes including micro services, containerization, continuous deployment, and various development methodologies

Embedded/IoT

Ongoing expertise and research spans multiple chipsets, RTOSs, and deployment platforms

Desktop/Native

Ongoing research on "classic" software applications that remain critical to many enterprises, including binary reversing, targeted exploitation, and threat analysis for this often neglected set of software applications
