Red Team Exercises

A Realistic Approach to the Security Testing

Derived from military exercise terminology, a red team exercise simulates a real-life
  threat to your organisation, targeting all possible elements, including the cyber assets,
the personnel that work for your organisation, and the physical assets. This assessment
is a simulation of a sophisticated attack against your organisation, where a variety of
tactics, techniques, and procedures will be used.

What is a Red Team Exercise?

It is a security assessment that enables an organisation to assess its overall readiness and awareness using realistic
scenario-based controlled incidents. Red teaming goes above and beyond vulnerability assessments and penetration
testing, as it takes all components within the organisation into scope and has a realistic scenario-based approach.
Ultimately, red teaming allows organisations to mature their cyber capabilities and kick-start transformation programmes.
Targeting the people, processes, and technology to understand where the security weaknesses lie
and how to remain cyber resilient by empowering your blue teams is a key outcome of a successful
red team assessment

Tools and Techniques Used in Our Red-Team Exercises

Red teams will attempt to apply the same tools and strategies that actual attackers use. However, red teamers don’t harm anything, unlike cybercriminals. Instead, they highlight gaps in a company’s security safeguards.

Why Do You Need Better Red Team Exercises?

Well, an effective red team exercise entails understanding your attack surface, where security weaknesses exist, and what
assets are most enticing to threat actors, as well as developing the ability to detect, all while guaranteeing a quick and
effective response
“It’s a four-legged stool with good stability. Remove any one of the legs…
and the structure collapses. “
As your organisation changes, new technology and policies must be strategically integrated rather than tactically
(and maybe haphazardly) applied, and compliance should be the result of the strategy rather than its sole
