About us
PowerInside Security Lab started in 2020 in Toronto, Canada.

We are a team of talented professionals with 20+ years of experience in software development and cyber security, both offensive and defensive. We are curious about hacking -- and passionate about helping you protect against it. We examine your infrastructure, code and smart contracts through the hacker's eyes. Our team members have eWPTXv2 and OSCP certifications and have won CTF competitions.

We relate to each other without hierarchy or a need for consensus. Trusting co-workers is our default means of engagement. We believe that freedom and accountability are two sides of the same coin.


We bring your whole selves to our work. We reject the idea of showing only "the rational" and "the professional" parts of us. Here, we celebrate the vulnerable, the emotional, and spiritual within us. We embrace the calling to reclaim wholeness, within ourselves and in our connection with life and nature.


We view PowerInside as having a soul, a creative impulse and a purpose of its own. We place trust in the abundance of life and our ability to distance ourselves from our ego.
