What Are Red Team Exercises and What Part Do They Play in Cybersecurity?
Penetration testing is an increasingly common part of cybersecurity and compliance regulations. The truth is that in many cases, the best way to get to the root of IT vulnerabilities in a system is to expose them to controlled but realistic attack scenarios that probe every interaction and connection in that system. In many cases, organizations will take penetration one step further and use what has been called red team testing.
Here we’ll discuss the difference between typical pen testing and red team exercises, how red team testing can help you better understand your security risks, and why that’s important for your organization’s compliance efforts.
