Defense in red team isn’t just about finding holes but to continue the sports analogy, a good red team engagement will also provide a playbook to improve that defense in the future.
Effective red teaming operations don’t end with the discovery phase. You want to work with a red team consultant that offers remediation assistance and re-testing. After all, the real legwork happens in the weeks or even months of effort it takes after our initial engagement to implement remediation controls.
Instead of moving on as soon as the ink dries on the final report, work with a penetration testing team that provides ongoing support to ensure your business fully comprehends the findings (impact, likelihood, criticality) and is on the right track toward remediation.
If you’re a small to midsize businesses, you might think red teaming isn’t for you. “I’m too small to be a target,” you might theorize. But in fact, this is exactly the line of thinking that puts an organization at risk. If you were a bad actor, wouldn’t you want to go after the guy who’d never expect it? While you might think no one would care enough to hack into your company, businesses of all sizes — and individuals — are regularly victimized.
And it’s not just about sensitive information. Bad actors are also trying to take over the technologies that power our lives. For instance, they might be looking to access your network to better hide their activities while taking over another system or network somewhere else in the world. Your data doesn’t matter. It’s your computers they want to infect with malicious software so that they add your system to a botnet group.
