Red Team is the process of using new Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs) to simulate real world threats in order to measure and train the effectiveness of human resources, processes and technology positioned to defend an institution / organization.
Red Team aims to understand security operations as a whole (people, processes and technology) to reveal vulnerabilities, flaws, errors. As a result of Red Team participation, you can identify your security vulnerabilities and risks, but more importantly, Red Team operational processes allows understanding the threat to Blue Team and its operating capability.
- Measure the effectiveness of personnel, processes and technology used to defend a network. How do you know if Blue Team TTPs are effective?
- Aims determining whether Blue Team needs practice to improve and or measure Blue Team’s ability to be affected by a potential threat or not.
- Aims that threats or threat scenarios that are scripted within the Red Team plan are tested and be understandable. Red Team interactions can be designed to implement specific scenarios. Scenarios may include attack like zero-day, ransomware or other unique attacks.
