Abricto Security is an offensive security consulting firm comprised of experienced security consultants, architects, penetration testers and IT professionals whose mission is to help our clients protect their most valuable assets. Each client has a unique set of risks, capabilities, and technology infrastructure, and our scoping and engagement process is designed to deliver tailored solutions that maximize effectiveness and value. We are dedicated to empowering our clients to understand and take control of their information security risk.

Abricto Security derives its name from the South African Abrictosaurus; a nimble dinosaur known for its cleverness and skill. Much like the Jurassic Period, the offensive security world requires quick minds and strategic movements to keep ahead of the ever-changing threat landscape.


We are a team of security leaders, consultants, ethical hackers and cloud professionals. Our backgrounds may be varied, but our objective is shared: to protect you with the knowledge and expertise necessary to keep your organization and information secure. View us as your cyber security subject matter experts, passionately and actively testing your organization’s security posture to identify and mitigate real-world business risks. Nice to meet you.
