What is a Red Team Exercice?

Red team exercises are similar to penetration tests in terms of execution, as they replicate a real hacking scenario using the same techniques as hackers. However, red teaming differs from pentesting, as it is a much deeper assessment specifically designed to replicate a skilled and persistent attacker attempting to breach your cybersecurity by any means necessary, without focusing on a specific technology. It provides a better perspective of an organization’s current cybersecurity posture, as it directly challenges the effectiveness of employees and systems to detect and respond to a real-world cyberattack.

These simulations provide differing perspectives on your organization’s ability to detect and respond to an active hacking attempt.

Examples of Red Team Exercices

Generally aligned with an organization’s risk management strategy, red team exercices must be tailored to a specific objective. This means that each red team engagement presents different parameters and targets, each adapted to the desired outcome. Here are examples of red team projects:

Attempting to gain the credentials of a specific IT administrator through phishing emails to further infiltrate the organization's technologies.

Gaining unauthenticated access into the Office 365 tenant to intercept communications and conduct Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks.

Circumventing an internal network's detection systems to exfiltrate a mission-critical database.

Breaking out of an industrial network's segmentation to compromise smart production lines and cause denials of service.

Red Teaming vs Penetration Testing

Although both assessments share the same general objective, both present different depths of analysis.
