Our team

Our team has decades of offensive and defensive cyber experience in senior positions in both the government and corporate arena. As ‘poacher turned gamekeeper’, KAZUAR is using this intelligence experience – alongside word-leading knowledge of cryptography – to develop an approach to cybersecurity that includes every level of the human, hardware, software stack, from keyboard to cloud. We believe that anything is possible. We share an intense passion, determination, and commitment to bring an urgently needed new approach to an escalating cybersecurity problem.
