Radically Open Security is the world's first not-for-profit computer security consultancy company. We are prototyping an innovative new business model - using a Dutch "Fiscaal Fondswervende Instelling" (Fiscal Fundraising Institution) to provide a commercial front-end that sends 90% of our profits tax-free to a backend foundation (StichtingNLnet) that has supported open-source, Internet research, and digital rights organizations for almost 20 years. The other 10% of our profits will go to an employee profit-sharing scheme, in which the secretary accumulates profit-sharing rights as quickly as the CEO. Additionally, due to our low management/overhead costs, we can afford to pay competitive wages to our computer security consultants.
We're an idealistic bunch of security researchers, networking/forensics geeks, and Capture The Flag winners that are passionate about making the world more secure. We believe in transparency and openness. And our goal is to secure the society that allows us to run a company in the first place.
