Radically Open Security is a nonprofit computer security consultancy founded by Melanie Rieback in 2014, whose organizational structure is based on the principle of “ethics by design”: prohibiting dividends, investors, and exits.

Being a platform, ROS is a 100% virtual organization that does not have a physical office but manages a network of freelance pentesters, most of whom are also active in the global hacker and open source community.
