Targeted Assessments for Mature Security Teams

Red Team Engagements are extremely focused evaluations that attempt to exploit sensitive data properties in the network by exploiting the vast reach that an external intruder may have had. Unlike the conventional penetration test, where our security experts are attempting to identify and exploit some potential vulnerabilities in a given scope—such as a web application—these commitments mimic a real cyber assault on the company.

Infopercept, a pioneer in these advanced projects, has grown a world-class team of offensive security engineers and analysts.

What is a Red Team Engagement?

Red Team Commitments are an important example of the tangible danger raised by the APT (Advanced Persistent Threat). Assessors are advised to compromise predetermined properties, or "flags," through means that a malicious attacker can use in a legitimate assault. Such detailed, dynamic security reviews are ideally tailored to organisations trying to improve a mature security enterprise.

Why are Red Team Engagements Important?

By leveraging this rare mix of attack capabilities, we will evaluate the attack mechanism to compromise the vital business properties. We will figure out where bugs reside in your network, software, IoT gadgets, and staff. We will also assess the efficacy of your security surveillance and alerting capabilities, as well as the vulnerabilities of your incident management policies and procedures.

The shown influence of the test paints a much broader vision that will help your company prioritise and prepare your future security measures.

Structured Red Team Methodology

  1. Scope
    Penetration monitoring is generally concerned with the assets to be included in the scope. However, the purpose of the Red Team Commitments is to compromise essential market properties; and the scoping process identifies fields to be omitted from the evaluation. It's broken down into the following steps:
    • Compile a list of the red team targets or "flags" to be captured during the evaluation.
    • Set up a definitive 'Regulations of Participation,' specifying the particular practises that are permitted—such as on-site psychological engineering and other techniques.
    • Note exclusions from the attack surface, such as some IP addresses, programmes and staff.
    • Confirm the official evaluation date and time zones, if applicable
    • Acquire a letter of authorisation—sometimes alluded to as a Get-out-of-Jail-Free-Card—for any on-site operations.
  2. Information Gathering and Reconnaissance
    The initial work undertaken in every black-box evaluation is to collect details. It incorporates a multitude of Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) tools for collecting data on the target organisation and is crucial to the operation. The aggregation of both public and private intelligence collection approaches helps Infopercept to establish an early strategy or attack framework. Examples of information that we target during identification are as follows:
    • External IP network set, hosting providers, and open ports or utilities.
    • Online and/or smartphone frameworks, along with related endpoints for the API.
    • Personal Names, Email Addresses, Phone Numbers and Subsequent Details (like social media profiles).
    • Previously compromised passwords and other forms of information.
    • IoT and various embedded devices used by the company
  3. Mapping and Planning of Attack
    After finishing the initial collection of information, the process shifts to our approach mapping and attack methodology. The method differs greatly, based on our intel from the previous stage and the footprint that has been created. These measures can include the following:
    • Enumerating secret environment subdomains and prepping programmes.
    • Analysing cloud systems for potential malfunctions.
    • Checking the authentication method for poor or default credentials.
    • Correlation of network and web systems of publicly and privately established bugs.
    • Mapping any known bugs for future manual attack vectors.
    • Construction of social-engineering scenarios
  4. Executing Attack and Penetration
    The diversity of knowledge collected in the early stages laid the groundwork for a whole range of attack options in all applicable vectors. These attack options can include the following options:
    • Attacking providers with previously mapped vulnerabilities in the previous step.
    • Compromising evaluation structures or sandboxes (often have fewer security protections).
    • Accessing any servers using breached data or brute force.
    • Targeting workers using a range of psychological methods.
    • Combining attack vectors, such as client-side vulnerabilities, via phishing emails.
  5. Reporting and Documentation
    Reporting is crucial to knowing the benefit you get from the Red Team interaction. Our reviews are the best ones in the industry. The papers are structured to be quickly digestible but complete in the results, giving both the probability of manipulation and the possible effects of each weakness. In addition, each vulnerability requires a remediation plan to minimise the risk associated with the vulnerability.
