What is red teaming?

Red teaming looks for all the unnoticeable gaps to get into your organisation. It looks for back doors, open windows and any way of getting in that won’t be spotted by you. This testing provides you with real-world scenarios to help you identify and understand where your gaps are and advise how you can patch them up. If you would like to find out more about red teaming fill in a contact form and we’ll get in touch. Nettitude provides advanced network protection through red team testing techniques. The majority of threats against your networks, data and systems are humans. They do not follow automated patterns like machines. They don’t shoot in straight lines. They don’t come knocking on the front door.

Looking For Red Team Testing?

Real attacks will be aware of your countermeasures. They will look for the backdoors, less observed routes, the unexpected entry points. They will come over the roof, through the tunnels and from the air. They will be believable, credible and will hold up under examination. They will have a history, a purpose and even the ability to explain their presence.

Red Team security testing provides you with a method of testing these scenarios. Not just what threats would be successful but also how well equipped your company is to detect, react and block such attempts. Red Team exercises often operate over an extended time and combine multi-faceted testing approaches that are designed to not only seek to penetrate an organisation but verify the response, monitoring and incident response investigation process and actions.

It includes physical security testing, social engineering, 3rd party relationships, hacking, malware insertion, pivoting and human manipulation. It looks at the response, the detection, the success rates and the defence failures. It gives you remediation advice, threat protection strategies and a route to more robust information assurance.

Frequently Asked Questions about Data Privacy Security

What is an incident response policy?

An Incident response plan or policy is a process you create before you experience a cyberattack. This is so that your team has a procedure to follow when you do experience a data breach. Nettitude follows the CREST Cybersecurity Incident Response process which is broken down into 3 phases: preparation, response, and follow up. Having a breach plan gives you the confidence to quickly nullify any threat to your data privacy security.

Why is data privacy security important?

Although it has always been important, the implications and need for higher security are coming into play now that technology is indispensable to everyday life. Using apps, browsing websites, and shopping online are all examples of how your data will be stored and managed online. For organisations today, the threat of cyber theft is a pertinent one. Having comprehensive data privacy plans in place can reduce and mitigate the risks of such events.
