Southfork Security is a recent startup in the ICS/SCADA security world but is not new to the space. It was founded by researchers at Idaho National Laboratory with significant combined security experience. At INL we worked with vendors, asset owners, and policy makers for over a decade to improve critical infrastructure security, reliability, and efficiency.
We spun off INL for two primary reasons. The first is to build security tools to help critical infrastructure. Second, the researchers at Southfork Security believe third party vulnerability assessments, on-site security evaluations, and responsible disclosure are necessary pieces to securing our nation's critical infrastructure. We founded Southfork Security in order to continue providing that service as DoE and DHS scale back their assessment efforts. We like hacking things and we don't want to stop.
With the experience gained and relationships made at Idaho National Laboratory, Southfork Security can provide exceptional products and services to our customers and partners. We've worked hard to create a worthy reputation at INL and we plan on exceeding it in our new venture here.
Beyond hours on the clock, we like to play as hard as we work and actively participate in the security community and capture the flag events, or "hacker fights". Security is more about a lifestyle for us. Our company policy advocates community participation, contribution to open source projects, donation of time or money to relevant causes (like the EFF), and other activities to make this world a better place.
When you do business with Southfork Security you're not just getting talented researchers who consistently deliver. You are getting people who live, eat, and breathe cybersecurity.
