"Why hire a red team? Because if you're going to get hacked, better to have someone do it on purpose than by accident!"
"Why worry about vulnerabilities? Just invite the hackers over for tea and let them point out all the weaknesses for you."

Red Team Assessment

Red team assessment, also known as red teaming, is a method of testing the effectiveness of an organization's security measures by simulating an attack from an adversary. Red team assessments typically involve a team of security professionals who act as the attackers and attempt to breach the organization's defenses. They can be conducted on a regular basis to ensure that an organization's security measures are up-to-date and effective.

WHAT IS
Red Team Assessment

DigiALERT is a company that specializes in conducting thorough Red Teaming assessments to safeguard an organization's infrastructure from potential security risks. Our objective is to simulate real-world attacks to uncover vulnerabilities in an organization's security posture and offer recommendations for improvement. Our assessments can be tailored to meet the unique needs of each organization and can focus on various aspects of their infrastructure, such as networks, systems, applications, and personnel.

Our team employs a range of tactics, techniques, and tools, including social engineering, network and infrastructure penetration testing, and physical security testing, to test the organization's defenses. We simulate various types of attacks, including APT, targeted attacks, and insider threats, to assess the effectiveness of an organization's incident response plans and identify areas for improvement in their cyber security posture.

Once the assessment is complete, we provide a comprehensive report that outlines the vulnerabilities found, their impact and severity, and recommendations for improvement. Our aim is to provide organizations with actionable insights that will help strengthen their defenses and reduce their attack surface. Organizations can trust in DigiALERT to deliver a solution that ensures their security posture is robust and prepared to face any type of cyber threat.

Types of
Red Team Assessment

As digiALERT, we specialize in various types of red team assessments. Here are a few examples:

  1. Penetration Testing: We simulate a real-world attack on your organization's networks, systems, and applications to identify vulnerabilities and assess the effectiveness of your security controls.
  2. Social Engineering: We conduct simulated phishing campaigns, pretexting, and other social engineering techniques to test the susceptibility of your employees to security threats.
  3. Physical Security: We conduct on-site assessments to evaluate the security of your facilities, including the effectiveness of access controls, surveillance systems, and security personnel.
  4. Wireless Network Testing: We assess the security of your wireless networks by identifying vulnerabilities and evaluating the effectiveness of your wireless security controls.
  5. IoT Security: We evaluate the security of your Internet of Things (IoT) devices and networks, including smart home devices, industrial control systems, and medical devices.
  6. Mobile Application Security: We assess the security of mobile apps by identifying vulnerabilities and evaluating the effectiveness of security controls in place.

Statistics on
Red Team Assessment

According to a study by the Ponemon Institute, 91% of companies have experienced a successful cyber attack.
A study by the SANS Institute found that organizations that conduct regular penetration testing are able to identify and remediate vulnerabilities 69% faster than those that do not.
According to a study by Forrester Research, companies that conduct regular penetration testing are able to reduce the risk of a successful cyber attack by as much as 30%.
A study by the Center for Internet Security found that organizations that conduct regular penetration testing are able to reduce the number of successful cyber attacks by as much as 85%.
According to a study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), organizations that conduct regular penetration testing are able to reduce the cost of a successful cyber attack by as much as 50%.
A study by Verizon found that organizations that conduct regular penetration testing are able to reduce the time to detect and respond to a cyber attack by as much as 70%.

How do we do
Red Team Assessment

At digiALERT, we specialize in red teaming assessments to identify and mitigate potential vulnerabilities in an organization's security posture. Our process includes the following steps:
  1. Scoping and objectives: We first define the scope and objectives of the assessment, identifying the systems, networks, and applications that will be targeted during the assessment.

  2. Information gathering: Our team conducts extensive research and reconnaissance to gather information about the organization's systems, processes, and people. We use this information to understand the organization's current security posture.

  3. Planning and execution: Using the information gathered, our team develops a comprehensive plan of attack and carries out simulated attacks on the organization's systems, networks, and applications.

  4. Monitoring: Our team closely monitors the organization's response to the simulated attacks and assesses the effectiveness of the organization's security measures.

  5. Reporting and recommendations: After the assessment is completed, our team provides a detailed report that includes a comprehensive analysis of vulnerabilities and weaknesses, as well as recommendations on how to improve the organization's security posture. We assist in implementing these recommendations to strengthen the overall security posture.

WHY RED TEAM ASSESSMENT
WHO NEEDS RED TEAM ASSESSMENT

Red team assessments are an advanced form of penetration testing that simulates a real-world cyber-attack scenario on an organization's networks, systems and applications. They are conducted by a team of security experts, using the same techniques and tools as real attackers. These assessments are necessary for organizations to improve their security posture and protect against cyber threats. They help identify vulnerabilities that may have been overlooked by traditional assessments, and evaluate the effectiveness of an organization's security controls. Organizations of all sizes and industries, such as government organizations, financial institutions, healthcare providers, and technology companies can benefit from Red Team assessments by reducing the risk of a successful cyber-attack and increasing their ability to detect and respond to a cyber-attack.

How often is Vulnerability Assessment recommended
When it would be performed

The frequency of vulnerability assessments is typically determined by the organization's risk profile, the criticality of its assets and the rate at which new vulnerabilities are discovered. In general, it is recommended that organizations conduct vulnerability assessments on a regular basis to ensure that their systems and networks are secure and  compliant with industry regulations.

For some organizations, conducting a vulnerability assessment once a year may be sufficient. For others, it may be necessary to conduct assessments more frequently, such as every quarter or even monthly. 

There are several circumstances in which an organization may want to conduct a vulnerability assessment:

  1. When implementing new systems or networks: it is important for an organisation to assess them for vulnerabilities to ensure that they are secure.
  2. After experiencing a cyber attack: it is important to conduct a vulnerability assessment to identify any weaknesses that may have contributed to the attack and to implement measures to prevent future attacks.
  3. When complying with regulatory requirements: Many industries, such as healthcare and finance, have strict regulations in place that require organizations to regularly assess and address vulnerabilities in their systems.
  4. When making significant changes to an organization's infrastructure: such as upgrading software or hardware, it is important to conduct a vulnerability assessment to ensure that these changes have not introduced any new vulnerabilities.
