Our story began with our co-founder, Candan Bolukbas, trailblazing cybersecurity avenues as a certified ethical hacker (CEH) for NATO. Thanks to Candan's expertise, NATO was able to uncover existing cybercriminal loopholes exposing member countries. Candan's work led him to an epiphany: vulnerable third party contractors were stepping stones to the primary target.
