Test your ability to detect and respond to threats with a real-world cyber-attack simulation
For a truly extensive assessment of security defences, a full-scale cyber-attack simulation is as close as you can get to understanding how prepared your organisation is to defend against a persistent human adversary.
A Red Team Operation from Redscan is designed to far exceed the remit of traditional security test by challenging the effectiveness of technology, personnel and processes to detect and respond to a focussed attack.
Discover how prepared your organisation is to respond to a real-word cyber incident by testing the effectiveness of technology, personnel and processes to identify, contain and remediate a focussed attack.
Identify security risks
Learn whether critical assets such as systems and data are at risk and how easily they might be compromised by malicious actors.
Uncover little-known weaknesses
By mirroring the tools, tactics and procedures (TTPs) used by criminals, Red Teaming can help identify and address little-known vulnerabilities that an attacker might seek to exploit.
Receive important post-operation support to address any complex security vulnerabilities identified.
Focus cyber security investments
Prioritise remediation of weaknesses so that future investments in cyber security deliver the greatest benefits.
Pushing your security defences to the limit
Today’s persistent cybercriminals will exploit any and all vulnerabilities to compromise your organisation. Without knowledge of the latest cyber security risks and attack methodologies however, identifying weaknesses across your IT network is impossible and can result in critical assets being exposed.
A Red Team Operation from Redscan is designed to exceed the remit of a penetration test to provide an in-depth, multi-layered assessment of your organisation’s defences. This real-life cyber-attack simulation thoroughly assesses the preparedness of your technology, personnel and processes to defend against a highly-sophisticated attack.
By comprehensively challenging virtual and physical security controls, a Red Team engagement identifies weaknesses in technology, processes and human behaviour.
Unlike a penetration test, Red Teaming is undertaken over an extended period of time to include reconnaissance and a methodical approach to attack execution.
Multi-blended attack methods
A Red Team Operation goes beyond the methodology of a standard penetration test, using black hat tools and methods such as social engineering and deployment of custom malware, to covertly infiltrate a network and highlight data that can be compromised and exfiltrated.
Detailed, custom reports provide key stakeholders with a complete overview of the Red Teaming Operation undertaken plus the actionable intelligence needed to help prioritise and remediate risks identified.
What to expect from a red team engagement
By providing regular feedback and reports throughout your Red Team Operation, our CREST certified ethical hackers ensure that all required stakeholders are kept up to date.
Here’s what you can expect to receive throughout a Redscan Red Teaming engagement:
An operation overview
A high-level overview of the operation for executive and management teams.
Detailed technical feedback to enable in-house security and IT teams to recreate findings.
A comprehensive risk analysis of the red team’s results.
Tactical and strategic recommendations, including clear advice to help address vulnerabilities identified .
Breaching defences by thinking like the adversary
Redscan’s CREST and OSCE accredited ethical hackers possess an in-depth knowledge of the latest advanced tools and methodologies employed by cybercriminals. Use of black hat tools, custom malware and social engineering enables us to simulate the real-world tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) that determined and persistent adversaries employ.
Our Red Team uses a systematic, repeatable and intelligence-driven testing methodology to thoroughly assess the ability of your organisation to stand up to real-world, simulated cyber-attack.
Prior to any operation, we work with you closely to define the objectives and rules of engagement. Red team operations are conducted in the strictest of confidence and unlike real-life attacks are not designed to cause damage or disruption to infrastructure and business operations.
Redscan’s Red Team Operations service uses a systematic approach to uncover holes in your organisation’s cyber security defences.
In-depth research and analysis identifies valuable information that can be used to exploit weaknesses in target systems, processes and human behaviour.
Where appropriate, malicious code is developed to exploit vulnerabilities.
Malicious code is typically delivered via social engineering. A highly-targeted spear phishing attack, for instance, can lure unsuspecting employees to open a compromised email attachment or click on a malicious website link.
Malicious software is installed on target assets to provide our ethical hackers with greater network visibility and remote access to systems.
Command and control
Multiple command channels are created to ensure access to compromised systems and assets is maintained should one channel be lost.
Once a system is compromised, attempts are made to access other areas of the network by compromising users with high administrative privileges, such as sysadmins.
Using compromised systems to attack other systems on the same network helps to bypass restrictions such as firewall configurations which may otherwise block access.
Once target data and assets have been located, attempts are made to compromise or extract it from the network without being detected.
