What is Red Teaming?
Red Teaming (a.k.a. Objective Based Penetration Testing) is an adversarial attack simulation against an organisation. It requires a holistic overview of the organisation and is designed to achieve a specific objective.
The primary goal of the exercise is to assess the organisation’s ability to prevent, detect, and respond to cyber-attacks and discover potential weaknesses that may not be identified through standard vulnerability and penetration testing exercises. A thorough Red Teaming exercise will expose vulnerabilities and risks regarding technology, people, process, and physical.
Red Teaming serves to complement other forms of security testing (e.g. penetration test, vulnerability assessment, code review) and should be incorporated into the security testing exercise of an organisation as it grows in its security maturity level.
