Black Cat White Hat Security

Why Cats?

Black is also commonly used to represent power, control, and authority, which are all qualities that many hackers strive for. Additionally, black is often associated with rebellion and non-conformity, which aligns with the anti-establishment ethos of many hackers.
In the context of hacking tools and software, "black" may also refer to tools that are designed to bypass security measures or gain unauthorized access to systems. For example, a "black box" is a term used to describe a device or software that is used to test the security of a system by attempting to break into it, often without any knowledge of how the system works.
 
Black Cats are known for...
Beauty: Black cats are often regarded as beautiful and sleek animals.
Charm: Black cats are often regarded as charming and charismatic animals, which can make them a joy to be around.
Mysteriousness: Black cats are often associated with mystery and magic, which can add an interesting element to their personality.

In hacking, the term "grey hat" is often used to describe a hacker who operates somewhere between the extremes of "black hat" (malicious hacker) and "white hat" (ethical hacker). Grey hat hackers may engage in activities that are technically illegal, but with the goal of exposing vulnerabilities and improving security, rather than causing harm.
The term "grey box" is also sometimes used in the context of software testing, to describe a testing approach that combines elements of both "black box" and "white box" testing. In grey box testing, the tester has partial knowledge of the system being tested, but is not fully aware of its inner workings.
 
Grey Cats are known for...
Calmness: Grey cats are often known for their calm and composed demeanor, which can make them great pets for people who prefer a more laid-back lifestyle.
Affectionate: Grey cats are often very affectionate and love to cuddle with their owners, which can make them great companions.
Sophistication: Grey cats are often regarded as sophisticated and elegant animals, which can add a touch of class to any home.

White hat hackers may be hired by companies or organizations to test their security systems and identify potential vulnerabilities before malicious hackers can exploit them. They may also participate in bug bounty programs, which reward individuals for discovering and reporting security flaws in software or systems.
The term "white box" is sometimes used in the context of software testing to describe a testing approach in which the tester has full knowledge of the system being tested, including its inner workings and code. This is in contrast to black box testing, where the tester has no knowledge of the system's internal structure or code.
 
White Cats are known for...
Purity: White cats are often associated with purity and innocence, which can make them a calming and soothing presence in the home.
Elegance: White cats are often regarded as elegant and refined animals, which can add a touch of sophistication to any home.
Friendliness: White cats are often very friendly and social animals, which can make them great companions for people who enjoy spending time with their pets.

We are a White Hat establishment, and we love cats. We symbolize the color of the cats as a training tool and to represent the knowledge of your cybersecurity plans and policies. The system knows nothing about you and your security posture. You are guided by the Black cat (Loki) as we have no knowledge of your current systems. As you answer questions and compile your risk, the Grey cat (Artemis) guides you as we are gaining knowledge. When you have acknowledged and have plans for your risk, the White cat (Thor) will help you finish the initial assessment process. Once you have gained knowledge on how to use the system, you can have the cats take a nap.
