Red Team Assessment is an offensive operation which is carried with the aim of compromising the target (i.e. an organization or its assets) through any possible entry point. The goal of this exercise is to assess how strongly your organization can hold up to a prominent security attack.
Visibility Over Risk.
Red team assessment can also be used to test an organization’s security policy compliance, its employees’ security awareness, and the organization’s ability to identify and respond to security threats and incidents. This targeted exercise gives you the visibility in evaluating the severity and impact of real-world security risks.
Objective Oriented Approach.
Every business has its own kind of risks and threats. A robust approach is necessary in order to assess all the risks a business might have. It is also essential to consider relevant threat actors for any given business. To ensure these concerns are addressed, our red team assessment approach strategically targets critical business functions which when compromised have direct impact on the organization. Each threat is considered to be an objective that has direct impact on your organization if any of these are achieved.
Initial understanding of the business domain and objectives. The Red Team experts compile a list of potential threats that are relevant to the enterprise’s domain. Based on the objectives, attacks will be simulated for assessment.
This phase has two iterative activities- reconnaissance and threat simulation. Reconnaissance includes exploration of the attack surface of the enterprise. Threat simulation is to assess the security risks on business functions.
This phase generates two reports- the analysis report which gives summary and details of simulations performed and attack surface overview, and the Executive report that gives a synopsis of the activity and recommends strategy.
