While it is impossible to know when your business will be the target of a cyberattack, an attack simulation (a.k.a. a “red team” exercise) is as close as you can get to understanding your organization’s level of preparedness.
Unlike penetration testing, red teaming is a focused assessment designed to test an organization’s detection and response capabilities against a simulated threat actor with defined objectives, such as data exfiltration. Organizations that already conduct regular pen tests and have a mature vulnerability management program may benefit from red team security services.
A red team operation from Kroll is designed to exceed the limits of traditional security testing by rigorously challenging the effectiveness of security controls, personnel and processes in detecting and responding to highly targeted attacks. Our team evaluates your organization’s response to an attack, helping you identify and classify security risks, uncover hidden vulnerabilities and address identified exposures so you can spend more time prioritizing future growth and investments.
Our red teaming process is built from the ground up to give you adaptability, clarity and support, allowing you to act with confidence.
Kroll's approach to red teaming gives you a clear, real-world view of your security posture and provides an actionable strategy with quickly recognizable benefits. Here’s what you can expect to receive in your red team report:
