WHAT IS RED TEAMING?
In order for an organization to understand the true risks posed by a sophisticated, targeted attack, red teams are absolutely necessary to improve detection and response capability. A red team exercise is a full spectrum cyber-attack simulation that mirrors the way a sophisticated threat attacker would target an organization. By testing the effectiveness of your defensive security controls, sometimes including physical security, a red team will allow you to measure your security program’s true effectiveness when faced with real-world adversarial behaviors and tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs). Compared to internal infrastructure assessments, which are limited to looking for one-off vulnerabilities, a red team effectively tests controls and awareness throughout the entire cyber kill chain.
Context's red team assessment methodology is aligned to the MITRE ATT&CK, CBEST and CREST STAR frameworks. Each engagement is fully customized to the client, starting with an analysis of the real-world threats they are likely to face. The information gathered is used to plan and deliver a multi-stage attack, identifying assets of interest such as key systems and critical data. A detailed report provides comprehensive mitigation advice where vulnerabilities have been identified, and programmatic guidance on improving defensive security posture.
