Hackers and cybercriminals constantly search for vulnerabilities in organizations. In recent years, they have stepped up attacks on networks that contain large amounts of personal data.
In this post, I'd like to talk about how to actually apply the concept of “red teams” in your enterprise. First, and foremost, red teaming for cyber security refers to the concept of a small team of hackers reviewing an organization to determine if they can gain access to critical assets. This may not sound much different than a penetration test, but one crucial piece is almost non-existent in a red team exercise: scope. A red team will utilize a web application, mobile platform, physical, social engineer, and network tester as part of a team whose goal is to profile the organization and gain access.
