OSR Security & Cyberwarfare Curriculum
Those in the intelligence and security communities are well aware of the impact of information and cyber warfare and the importance of their roles in protecting personal, corporate and governmental data. To enable this population's efforts in the Windows space, OSR has created a new curriculum of material that utilizes its unique expertise in Windows operating system internals. This Security & Cyberwarfare Curriculum provides content that is core for cyberwarfare and security researchers, analysts and software developers to acquire in order to effectively understand, analyze, and protect Windows systems.

With more than 15 years of Windows internals experience, industry-recognized expertise and an in-depth understanding of how the operating system works from a source code level, and a close working relationship with Microsoft, no other organization is better suited to offer a core curriculum for information security and cyber warfare.
OSR's Client List is extensive, and there are very few Customer Projects we've engaged in over the years that would be in any way described as "commodity", "trivial" or "run-of-the-mill". Organizations in the public and private sectors around the world know that they can turn to OSR when they need definitive expertise as opposed to guesses or when no other organization can help them. This is the value that we bring to the table.
Let's be clear though - as we always tell prospective customers, we know what we know, and we know what we don't know. So while we will certainly claim that no one knows more about OS internals, driver development and that we can provide the necessary background for researchers, analysts and devs to secure or exploit a Windows system, we're not a "cleared" facility, nor are we actively engaged as anti-virus or anti-malware experts.
A Unique Community
Over the years of working with corporate and government clients in the security, information warfare, and cyberwarfare fields, we've come to understand the unique needs of this community. While nobody on the OSR staff maintains a security clearance, we've taught and consulted for offensive and defensive teams.
Our Unique Talent
One important aspect to understanding security on Windows is understanding how the operating system works. This implies a solid understanding of internal data structures, processes, and procedures. And key to utilizing this information is a strong set of analysis skills, gained through practical experience. These are precisely the areas in which the OSR engineering team excels. Let us share our experience with your team.
