It all started with a WarKitteh…
Our founder, Gene Bransfield, made it a professional goal to present at DEF CON – the world’s largest and longest-running underground hacking conference. He was accepted to present at DEF CON 22 in 2014 with the presentation “Weaponizing your Pets: The WarKitteh and the Denial of Service Dog.” In that talk, Gene described how he configured a microcontroller, added GPS, Wi-Fi, battery and storage; and miniaturized the solution to a form factor that fit into a cat collar. He then put the collar on a cat, and that cat wandered around Washington, DC doing Wi-Fi Scanning. The talk was very successful and is one of the most popular talks in DEF CON history [check it out]. Shortly after the conference, people began asking that he make the WarKitteh as a product, and so he founded WarCollar Industries.
Shortly thereafter, the company where he’d been working for 8 years was sold. Gene realized the opportunity to start his own company, rolled cybersecurity services under the WarCollar name, began work as WarCollar on May 4th, 2015, and has been growing the company ever since.
WarCollar’s mission is to maintain a community of innovative cybersecurity experts who leverage each other’s strengths to pinpoint cybersecurity problems and recommend appropriate mitigations.
Our vision for the future is to build and maintain a tight-knit core of cybersecurity mission experts and to raise awareness of the urgency of cybersecurity education overall.
