Red Teaming

What is Red Teaming?

Although Penetration Tests and Vulnerability Assessments are important for understanding your organization’s exposure to cybersecurity risks, they may not fully prepare your employees, executives and Incident Responders against realistic cyber threats. Red Team Services aim to improve your assets and personnel’s readiness through a realistic security attack simulation that can target your organization’s cyber, physical, and human information security elements.

 

How does Red Teaming work?

During red teaming engagements, Priority’s Red Team, utilizes open-source intelligence (OSINT) and threat intelligence to create realistic attack scenarios relevant to your organization, its infrastructure and personnel.

 

Each attack scenario has one or more specific objectives tailored to your organization, which, under other circumstances, would cause significant damage to your organization’s assets, reputation or regulatory compliance. The objective may include the following:

  • Highly confidential data theft or exfiltration
  • Access to highly sensitive physical locations
  • Disruption of processes or critical systems

 

As the Red Team goes through the defined scenario, it mimics the tactics, techniques and procedures of real-life threat actors, putting your organization’s incident response and crisis management team to the test. For the operation to be effective, it is essential that the incident response team members are not aware that the attack originates from a planned Red Team engagement, which will ensure they react as if a real security incident had occurred.

 

A debriefing is conducted at the end of each Red Team Engagement, to analyse the executed scenario, and identify key areas of improvement. When acting as a simulated threat agent, the Red Team can propose additional steps that, when implemented, would improve the organization’s detection, prevention and response procedures.
