Red Team

Test your defenses against attacks through red teaming, an offensive exercise where simulated attacks test your people, processes, and technology.

Overview

Red teaming is the simulation of an advanced persistent threat. Redspin uses the techniques and methods of known malicious groups to identify and quantify the resilience of your organization. 

Blue teaming is the opposite of a red team, actively monitoring for anomalies and quarantining the potential threats. Blue teams work to identify gaps in your security and either fix the issue or add appropriate monitoring to detect incoming threats.

Red team vs. blue team exercises can benefit organizations of all sizes.Test your cybersecurity defenses against threats or assess your security team’s preparedness against a simulated, real world cyber attack. 

Red teams are the attackers, usually unaware of the blue team’s defenses, and the blue team is unaware of the exercise.

Critical Insight

By having a third party assume the attacker role, your organization is better able to expose security gaps you’d otherwise not uncover in other penetration tests.

Mimics Real World Attacks

The blue team, as the “victim” is unaware of the attack and doesn’t know which part of the infrastructure will be attacked.

Having a partner that is actively monitoring our systems, trends, local and global threats not only saves the Virtua IT Security team time, but provides us with the ability to proactively look at potential threats to plan accordingly. The partnership with CynergisTek has allowed us to focus on compliance, developing risk programs, policy and procedures leading to a culture focused on making us more secure.

Tom Gordon

CIO, Virtua

Security has become a necessary and critical strategic pillar for our organization, and it is too broad and complex for a provider organization to keep up with on their own. Having a partner like CynergisTek with depth and breadth of knowledge and expertise is a crucial asset for our organization. I can’t imagine navigating these issues without them.

Vice President, Chief Information & Compliance Officer, Saratoga Hospital

CynergisTek’s social engineering and phishing service was an excellent training tool for our organization. A third-party assessment of how our policies and procedures would stack up against a real threat was eye-opening and provided us with valuable information we can leverage to continue to enhance our security posture.
