We can conduct vulnerability assessments and penetration tests, but does
it mean you are 100% secure from advanced threat? Does it say your
defenses are growing & increasing in complexity that can match
advancing attacks? For examples banks can be vulnerable to mobile
malware, Oil & Gas industries can be susceptible to Automated Tank
Gouge Hack (a case of a 2015 attack) and you wouldn't know about it
unless someone tried to hack it. And this is what Red Teaming can help
you with, and this activity is a perfect example of the saying "the best
offence is a good defense."
What is Red Teaming?
Teaming is another word for Red Team Assessment; its ultimate purpose
is to enhance security. A Red Team puts themselves in place of a real
attacker whose aim is not to test your defenses but to somewhat
penetrate by all means possible. The assessment is designed to conduct a
full scope, multi-layered attack to measure how well the company's
security infrastructure can withstand an attack from a real-life
adversary. These highly trained security consultants tend to think
creatively to perform attack scenarios to reveal potential
These attacks can provide an opportunity to
identify compromised systems and individuals that make your organization
vulnerable. These vulnerabilities can stem from cultural bias in system
design, flawed conclusions, or the limitations and expectations of an
6% to 28% of the attacks is conducted with the help of current or former employees of the infected organizations - InfoSec Institute
Why you should consider Red Teaming?
is easy to assume your company does not require red teaming for reasons
like, 'My company is too small,' 'we do not store a lot of critical
information' or 'we have a strong security architecture.' But you may be
surprised that most bad actors tend to target companies who are in
these exact assumptions.
It is not just the critical information
that is of interest. IoT, the technology that is an integral part of our
business functions is at risk as well. A successful red team assessment
will be able to identify those unsuspected vulnerabilities. The red
team will perform the test by considering the scale of your organization
and the threats faced by the industry. It can also be customized
depending on the organization requirements.
