Adversaries across the globe, from nation-states to criminal organizations, hold our businesses, democracy, and society at risk through cyberspace. Our mission at AttackIQ is to help solve that problem.
It’s as much about how you accomplish your work as it is about the work you accomplish. That’s why our culture is simple: work with purpose and make the most of each day. As a team we cherish curiosity and value camaraderie. We show respect for new ideas as well as the faces behind them. We’re transparent and push one another to constantly improve. But most of all, we enjoy what we do.
We are the sum of the contributions of all of our employees. We play to win and openly discuss options when our goals compete. We unite to deliver results for our company and customers.
We put the customer at the center of everything we do. Surpass expectations, every time.
What do you do when no one else is looking? Our teams act with integrity and honesty and focus on putting ourselves in the shoes of others.
We never give up seeking creative ways to solve problems.
We share information. Share mistakes. Share victories.
We empower our employees to work in an environment that is conducive to creating the optimal work/life balance. In addition, every one of us is dependent on one another, with our time, with our knowledge, with our craft. It’s the heart of who we are as organization.
