Red Teaming is a full-scope, multi-layered attack simulation designed to measure how well a company’s people and networks, applications and physical security controls can withstand an attack from a real-life adversary.

A Red Team Assessment does not look for multiple vulnerabilities but for those vulnerabilities that will achieve their goals. To put red teaming in layman’s terms, it is a “simulated real life attack” — a way for independent security teams to test how well an organisation would fare in the face of a real attack.

The Red Teams mission is to emulate the tactics, techniques, and procedures used by adversaries and real life attackers. The goal is to give real world simulations and hard facts on how a company will respond, fill gaps within a security program, identify skill gaps within employees, and ultimately increase their security posture.
