Cybersecurity threats and data loss incidents numbers are increasing, and have made it imperative for both small and large organization to conduct frequent penetration tests to identify and mitigate cybersecurity threats. By hiring a group of expert bug hunters every now and then, organizations can test the integrity of their information security system. A simulated attack is the best way to identify hidden vulnerabilities in your security infrastructure. This is where a red team comes in.
Red Teaming involves a full-scale attack simulation designed to find out how well the organization’s staff, network, applications, and other physical security controls can withstand a real-life attack. It is like a penetration test on steroids. In layman terms, Red Teaming is an ethical hacking method often done without the knowledge of your staff and other stakeholders to find hidden vulnerabilities in your system and determine how your company would survive if attacked by real hackers.
