Our teams

We have the following awesome teams

Supervisory Board

Hacker initiatives like these, tend to have their own dynamics: sparks lead to flames, which die out or lead to wildfires, wasting energy along the way. To keep our minds focused on our goal to make the digital world a safer place and provide helpful hackers a solid platform, we installed a Supervisory Board of cyber security heavyweights. Each board member also represents a sector we try to get along in reaching our goals, i.e.: law enforcement, intelligence services, cyber security companies, academia and hackers.



The board of directors is responsible for strategic leadership of DIVD.



Providing some sense of direction to a bunch of hackers, aka advanced cat herding.



The CSIRT is the engineblock of DIVD. It is responsible for scanning the internet and notifying the system owners as well as running our CVE Numbering Authority activities.



DIVD has two teams highly skilled security researchers who seek and report vulnerabilities as a voluntary service next to their jobs. DIVD sees to it they follow our Code of Conduct while we provide them a firewall for journalists, lawyers and recruiters. Meanwhile, their research also serves as an empirical base to discover trends in security, stimulate security awareness and develop new methodologies in vulnerability research and disclosure. So, although you will probably never meet our researchers, you may hope they are checking your systems right now, before the bad guys do…


IT Services

Taking care of the IT of hackers in a non-hacky way so they don’t get hacked.



When you have IT, you have IT problems. When you have an organisation of hackers you have even more interesting problems. Team helpdesk is here to help.



Translating l33tsp3ak to human and the other way around as well as maintaining this awesome website.


Security, Risk & Compliance

Hackers need security and compliance too, and there are plenty of risks to manage as well as ethics to consider.



These coders code awesome code for us.



Caring for our volunteers to the maximum extend.
