Who we are.

Get to know us from all sides

We know exactly what we want to achieve for your #CyberSecurity and what we have to do for it.
We want that to be transparent within our vision and mission statements.

While the content for the statements was immediately obvious to us, the form presented us with a challenge: On the client side,
professionalism is our top priority; internally, our corporate culture thrives on just the right amount of craziness. Suit and tie at the customer meeting vs. hoodie and sneakers in the hacking lab.

How do you bring all that together in one statement? We don't think we can, and so we present our two modus operandi in different statements:


Our goal is to use our knowledge and experience in IT security to protect all people who are part of our community of values.

For each of our customers, working with us should be a special experience from which real value is created.

We are proud of our community and confirm the trust placed in us through outstanding quality and uncompromising transparency.

We want to spread security in your networks with the efficiency of a computer virus.

We want to infect you with our enthusiasm for a sustainable and secure digitalization.

We want a community that grows through exchange and faces new challenges fearlessly through mutation.

We want to be known globally for the best hackers, the most innovative ideas and the greatest passion for your IT security.
Our mission is to save and protect lives by making the digital infrastructure of companies sustainably secure.

Our moral compass is the basis
for all our decisions.

We can best fulfill our mission if as many people as possible cooperate.

That's why we see the people behind the screen and listen. We network and share our knowledge transparently.
We offer the best hackers a safe home and train the IT security elite of tomorrow with them.

We serve everyone by sustainably strengthening our customers' network immune system and treating acute wounds pragmatically and efficiently.

We take a holistic view of IT security and see the people behind the screens.

We work freely and independently.

We make the IT Security Elite of tomorrow by networking and sharing our knowledge.

We are a sworn community that gives each other support and motivates each other to peak performance.

ProSec in 15 years

We travel into the future and make our vision a reality.

The setting

Externally, not much will have changed: We will remain at a central location. Our team will grow to match the expansion of our areas of responsibility. However, the number of employees will always remain within a range that feels like family. It's just the right scale to achieve our goals while maintaining community spirit and focus.

More security for all

We are doers. That is why we will remain loyal to our customers from the private sector in the future, because here we can easily implement our agile method of working. Direct, personal contact with companies keeps our finger on the pulse. This means we always know exactly which attackers are currently using which methods. The direct protection of customer data and systems motivates us in our daily work to always give our best.

We will expand our work in the public sector: we advise authorities and governments in Germany and at European level. 

In this way, we not only protect individuals, but also defend our democratic values in their entirety against potential attackers. 

The public sector offers the right means to use our skills to develop and implement completely new methods

and approaches.

The challenges of breaking new ground motivate our experts on a professional as well as on a personal level.

All people should benefit from our work - either directly through cooperation with us or indirectly through our influence on business and politics.

By combining private and public sector customers, both sides win: Governments and public authorities 

get an overview of the current threat situation from the private sector and benefit from our hands-on experience. 

Companies from the private sector, in turn, benefit from our research and development work in the public sector.

All our customers - national, international, from business and governmental levels - win above all through the high intrinsic

motivation of our employees. For them, IT security is a matter of the heart that they pursue with logic, intellect

and true passion.

ProSec stands for Elite

We are the elite in cyber security: When you think of IT security, you automatically think of ProSec. We achieve this status not through quantity, but through quality.

"The best hackers come to us."

ProSec shapes the entire industry through pioneering knowledge: We develop new methods and make niche methods known. We are the first port of call for young talents and old hands who want to put their skills to good use and make a difference.

ProSec stands for Family

An above-average salary is nice, but it is not the reason why our employees like to start the new working week on Mondays. Along with to motivation in terms of content, it is also our colleagues who make us happy to work. There is absolutely no room for an elbow mentality here.

"Money does not add value."

We see ourselves as a family where mutual loyalty is paramount. We share the same ethical and moral values and work together to protect and embody them.

We share our knowledge

We can't achieve our vision of a secure digital world for all on our own. That's why we want to share our knowledge and methods with fellow campaigners, so that together we can achieve even more. Our knowledge base is intended to be used by everyone who deals with the topic of IT security. Our goal here is qualitative reach via an unparalleled collection of expertise.

"If it exists somewhere, ProSec has it - otherwise, probably no one does."

In addition to providing high-quality technical articles, we network with colleagues from market companions via the shortest possible, pragmatic channels.

We thrive on pragmatism

ProSec aims to make career paths in IT Security more pragmatic and diverse. This includes the co-design of InfoSec curriculum: We would like to wire pentesting and offensive security more at universities in order to supplement theoretical teaching with practical elements.

"Living and showing pragmatism. Getting career pathways right in InfoSec."

For future generations, we want to reduce bureaucratic hurdles on the way into our industry: A degree in computer science is not useful or necessary for all career paths. We would also like to rethink the industry's usual certificate landscape: It always takes pioneers to do something first. This is only possible if we break away from well-trodden paths and look for new solutions.

2022 employs #ProSec Ethical Hackers not only at the main headquarters in Polch, but also in Munich and Berlin. In addition to several governments, we mainly serve medium-sized customers as well as corporations.

What our customers continue to appreciate is our pragmatic approach to the fight against cybercrime.

A CISO once said to us "I love that you can do compliance but you don't have to, it makes every process pragmatic and quick to implement"!

We have made this our guiding principle, because let's be honest: Compliance and over-bureaucracy only slow down InfoSec. We make Infosec understandable and actionable - #ThinkBeforeYouClick.

We employ the world's best penetration testers to make this possible. Consequently, certifications such as the OSCP or the OSCE are frankly kindergarten here and are already required of our junior penetration testers.
