Red Teaming

What is Red Teaming?

A red team assessment is a goal-based activity which provides inclusive view of the organization from the perspective of a threat actor. The drive of conducting a red teaming assessment is to demonstrate as how a real-world attacker can combine seemingly unrelated exploits to achieve their goal. This assessment process is designed to meet the needs of complex organizations handling a variety of sensitive assets through technical, physical, or process-based means.

Why Red Team Engagement is Required?

According to various reports, over 70% of the attacks, in recent times, occur at an application level. As per several surveys conducted over the years, people are attacking through apps in the 21st century as it is easier than via network layer. Despite the common use of defenses like prevention systems or intrusion detection and firewalls, hackers are still able to pose major legal liability without even being detected or stopped.

A web application is any program that can be accessed through a web server. As web applications often provide access to sensitive data this makes them high value target for attackers.

Methodology

  • Pre-Engagement

    In this section we will discuss about timelines, scoping, location, time of the day to test and other such requirement to start the assessment

  • Information Gathering

    This phase involves collecting information and data about the targets that are going to be hit by the Red Team. Reconnaissance, aka Information Gathering, is one of the most critical steps. This is done through the use of public tools, such as Maltego, LinkedIn, Google, Twitter, Facebook, Google Earth, etc. As a result, it is usually possible to learn a great deal about the target’s people, technology, surroundings and environment.

  • Exploitation

    During this phase, the goal is to compromise servers, applications, networks, bypass physical security controls (ie: gates, fences, locks, radar, motion detection, cameras) and exploit target staff through social engineering by face-to-face, email, phone, fax or sms.

  • Escalation & Internal Reconnaissance

    Vulnerability testing is the process of discovering flaws in web server and applications which can be leveraged by an attacker. Once the potential threats are identified a security test plan is created to identify if these threats can be exploited.

  • Recommendation and Report

    Each vulnerability is ranked based on the threat it poses for the business and not just a universal rank. Our experts also provide remediation guidance, so your developers can fix these vulnerabilities sooner and stay focused on product ingenuity.

  • Revalidation

    Once the reported vulnerabilities are addressed, we will conduct another round of testing to confirm the fixes of identified issues.
