Starting a red-team program but not sure where to begin? Looking to improve your existing red-team operation? Before getting too far in the cyber weeds, go back to the basics with SafeBreach’s new white paper: “The Fundamentals of Modern Cybersecurity Red Teaming.”
Red Team 101
Building a successful cybersecurity red team doesn’t have to be complicated, but it does require a commitment to assembling the right people, processes, and technology. Rather than merely testing one-off security controls like a firewall or an anti-virus system, red-team testing is more holistic in nature and designed to test the security posture of entire organizations and their employees.
A red-team testing exercise not only identifies security flaws and seeks to penetrate defenses, but also tests how the organization reacts and how effectively it responds to any successful attack. The best red teams will figure out a way to exploit some flaw. According to Deloitte, 94% of organizations that run red-team testing face some level of successful penetration.
