Red Teaming

What is Red Teaming?

Red Teaming activity is a goal based security assessment, In which Red Team acts like a real world attacker or enemy to get a clear picture of security from their perspective. Unlike Pentesting, Red Teaming activity is designed to clearly demostrate, how can the malicious hackers/attackers can exploit the security vulnerabilities by chaining them together to acheive a bigger goal, mainly compromise the main infrastructure of the company.

Red team may consists of some internals from the company, but it is recommended to add externals in the red team to make a group that can think and act like an external real threat whose aim is to compromise the target using any type of attack vectors.
