one of the most advanced information security tests an organisation can undertake
Red teaming is a scenario led engagement which simulates real-world cyber threats or which is made to challenge your blue-team in the most complete, exhaustive and accurate manner.
Unlike penetration testing, red teaming is goal based and our consultants will utilise any route possible, within the set scope, to gain access to a privilege level or set of resources that could be highly impactful.
These engagements can be useful to any organisation wishing to test their robustness in the face of cyber-threats. However, they are more suited to larger scale organisations that have a global presence and considerable attack surface, those that have critical assets they are required to protect, that have been undertaking regular penetration testing or have advanced internal security teams.

what we test
Our consultants will look to gather information from multiple sources, utilise various techniques and attempt numerous routes in order to achieve their goal. The routes we use are dependent on the scope set, but can include a combination of:
Your digital estate is often bigger than you think. Every connected device, website, application & server provides a potential way in. Our consultants will look to understand your estate, probing and testing to exploit potential opportunities.
Staff can be your strongest line of defence, but they can also be your weakest link. Our consultants can use a variety of methods, such as social engineering and open source intelligence (OSINT), to obtain credentials and gain access to your network.
Our team are experienced in conducting physical red team operations and, if instructed, will look to manipulate their way into premises. Once inside they will attempt to gain access to sensitive areas, or confidential information unchallenged.
Once inside your network, our security consultants will look to expose any poor security processes and controls. This could include poor internal password management, ineffective privilege access levels and a potential lack of incident response.
Red team engagements are complex, and our approach will be unique to your organisation, security posture, digital estate and the goals set. Broadly speaking, each assessment will go through the following stages:
