Who We Are

If you know your enemy and you know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy or yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

— Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Piratica was founded in 2014 as an external resource for organizational leadership and senior management and as a force multiplier for internal and external IT support teams. At the core of our business is the understanding that the first and most important part of any solution is to correctly and completely identify the problem.  We work discreetly with client organizations to help them identify and understand potential risks to their organization from cyber attack. Our goal is to not only enable the client organization to understand their infrastructure and security posture but to also help them understand the tools and techniques used by those that may seek to wreak havoc by damaging systems, accessing trade secrets or intellectual property or stealing the sensitive data of clients, vendors or patients for sale on the black market.
The Piratica team maintains a number of industry certifications and has more than 20 years of experience and has operated in both civilian and military environments. We leverage that experience with industry best practices and standards from the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES), National Institute of Standards in Technology (NIST) and Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM) to provide our clients with a strategic advantage against ever evolving and aggressive threats to the confidentiality, integrity and stability of their technology assets.
