An organization’s security posture is derived from its stamina to threat actors, not security auditors. With attackers using a broad spectrum of tools and tactics to compromise corporations a new service has arisen – the Red Team.
Building a security defense program robust enough to handle the challenges of modern threats requires a complete understanding of your infrastructure, applications, systems, and network-enabled devices and their vulnerabilities. Without a comprehensive approach to the current state of your security protocols, it’s impossible to effectively manage and improve your resilience to threats. With modern attackers using a broad spectrum of tools and tactics to compromise corporations, the need for a new service has arisen – the Red Team.
CybeRisk Red Team Assessment Service Overview
With the proliferation of cloud-based infrastructure, along with mobile, social media, and Internet of Things (IoT) technology into the business space, new security challenges have arisen. This is making it necessary for organizations to implement new and effective security solutions to protect their infrastructure, data, and reputation.
The best way to protect your industry from the myriad security threats which exist today is to be proactive in taking the fight to the cybercriminals. A robust and complete security solution with a professional and experienced team behind you will provide the appropriate response to the increasing number and sophistication of these attacks.
The CybeRisk Red Team solution will address all vulnerabilities in your infrastructure with a comprehensive assessment of your current security posture. Once this has been established, the Red Team can prioritize solutions based on areas of greatest vulnerability. Point-in-time validations of the effectiveness and design of security architecture can be updated across all touch points and backed up with industry intelligence and best practice.
However, it is not enough to implement a security strategy and then step away. The modern digital threat landscape is an ever-shifting one and requires flexible and agile thinking. Therefore, it is essential to carry out periodic status checks and review of your organization’s security posture and adjust and shift priorities in response to new threats.
The CybeRisk Red Team
By adopting a goal-orientated viewpoint, the CybeRisk Red Team assessment can focus on handpicked assets which are directly related to the real-world activities and behaviors of those who would compromise the security of your organization. These potential engagements can be defined in part by the needs and technical sophistication of your industry and objectives can range from limiting access to a sensitive data source, or ongoing monitoring, such as when listening in on channels which may be vulnerable to data exfiltration.
Once the objectives of the Red Team assessment have been established, online discovery is carried out to assess the extent of the infrastructure which is vulnerable, and a full intelligence gathering initiative is conducted to holistically evaluate the present state of site security – both physical and digital. Once this data has been collated CybeRisk can create a plan of attack and design a bespoke security solution with a focus on the goals and objectives of your organization, including, but not limited to:
- External and internal applications
- External and internal infrastructure
- Protection against recruitment of personnel and outside contractors
- Protection against physical infiltration and espionage.
Part of the CybeRisk Red Team assessment service is that you the customer is involved at every step of the process. From planning to implementation and beyond, you have the power to customize and adjust the plan, as the needs and goals of your organization shift and develop. We combine our security expertise, with your in-depth knowledge of the industry, to establish the rules of engagement going forward.
The limits and boundaries of the exercise are therefore set by the customer. Regular audits will ensure everything is continuing as planned, and to identify any weaknesses which may become apparent due to new and emerging threats.
When testing for the potential of personnel being recruited by attackers, CybeRisk will continue to work with you to identify vulnerable targets and departments on which to run simulations designed to test whether such efforts are likely to be successful.
Physical infiltration and espionage can be protected against by working symbiotically with your existing security personnel to identify weaknesses and pain points, which may be vulnerable to attacks. The goal is to create an environment of open and honest cooperation between the CybeRisk Red Team, you, and your staff, working towards a single objective – the security and continued success of the organization.

A cyber breach can happen at any time. Determining whether your organization is prepared can happen in one of two ways: either in the course of a cyber breach or by conducting a War Games exercise.
