What is Red Teaming?

Red Teaming is used to test an organization's detection and response capabilities. Our Red Team attempts to access sensitive information in any way possible and as undetected as possible. This assessment emulates a malicious actor actively attacking and attempting to evade detection, similar to Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) or cyber threat.

Differences between Red Teaming and Pentesting

The decision whether to perform a pentest or to use a Red Team can only be made in accordance with the company's own objectives. Our Red Team attempts to access sensitive information in any way possible and as undetected as possible. This assessment emulates a malicious actor actively attacking and attempting to evade detection, similar to Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) or cyber threat. A Red Team Assessment does not look for multiple vulnerabilities, but rather the vulnerabilities that can be used to achieve its goals. A pentest, on the other hand, is designed to uncover as many vulnerabilities and configuration issues as possible, exploit them, and determine the level of risk. Methods used by the Red Team include social engineering, electronic as well as physical pentests, and all methods that are also generally used in a security assessment. A pentest often takes 1-2 weeks, while a Red Team Assessment can take 3-4 weeks or longer. Several Red Team experts often participate in this assessment.

When should Red Teaming be used?

Red Teaming

However, a Red Team Assessment is not suitable for everyone and should be conducted by organizations with mature security programs. These are organizations that frequently run pentests, have most vulnerabilities patched, and generally have positive pentest results. The following added value is generated:

  • Measurable detection and response capability of IT security
  • Realistic risk understanding for the organization
  • Help with the elimination of identified attack vectors
  • Understand how attackers move through Network Lateral Movement and steal sensitive data through Data Exfiltration.

Red Teaming operations have narrowed down the goals and the simultaneous approach. They often require more people, resources and time as they go deeper to fully understand the realistic level of risk and vulnerability in terms of an organization's technology, people and material resources.
