My name is Riccardo ten Cate i am a freelance penetration tester from the netherlands who is specialised in web-application security.

Beside penetration testing i am also specialised in secure application development and guiding development teams building applications secure by design.

My experience taught me that the current level of security the current web-applications contain is not sufficient enough to ensure security. This is mainly because web-developers simply aren't aware of the risks and dangers waiting to be exploited by hackers.

Because of this me and my brother Glenn ten Cate decided to develop a framework in order to create a open-source guiding system available for all developers so they can develop applications secure by design.
