Cybersecurity red teaming is a multi-layered attack simulation designed to assess an organization’s security controls. The idea is to emulate attacks from real-world adversaries and see how the organization’s defenses hold up. Ultimately, organizations can take the lessons they learn from a red-team engagement and apply them to strengthen their security posture. Highly trained “red teamers” will emulate adversaries by exploiting technology like networks and applications; people like staff, contractors, and partners; and physical assets like buildings, data centers, and operational platforms. In this episode, special guests David Hunt, Alex Manners, and Brian McCord discuss what red teaming is, how people get started in the red teaming world, how organizations employ red teams, and what the future holds.
