Who We Are

Security Research Labs is a Berlin based hacking research & consultancy firm with offices in Hong Kong and Jakarta. Our team of young, brilliant and incredibly motivated ethical hackers advise international companies on IT security and work on strategic research projects with the aim of making the world a safer place.

Our hackers are responsible for uncovering vulnerabilities such as BadUSB, Shopshifting and the Android patch gap. Meanwhile, one of our most successful Hack the Beach participants (now a colleague!) uncovered how the cloud exposes private IP cameras. Watch his talk here:

You could be the next to present your high-impact project from Hack-the-Beach at an international conference. We’d be honored to help you get there!
