Red-team tests are detailed security assessments that rely on the application of complex hybrid attack scenarios by utilizing both physical and digital attack tools. This allows our clients to measure their preparedness against advanced threats such as corporate espionage, sabotage, or state-supported APT actors.
As a general term, red-team testing can be defined as an "open-scope attack simulation with a specific objective" specifically applied for testing the effectiveness of an organization’s overall security (both physical and digital) against a specific concern or threat.
With red-team testing, it is possible to:
- Discover the impact of errant implementations, such as a misplaced CCTV camera or an entrance turnstile, together with their indirect impact on the organization’s IT infrastructure security.
- Find out how a VIP room, which is thought to be extra-secure, can be prone to eavesdropping due to social media or an over-curious executive assistant.
- Identify how your crucial prototypes, strategic reports, or other important R&D knowledge can be extracted from without the organization, following a complex attack that includes a combination of physical penetration, social engineering, and third-party vendor risks.
