Red & blue teaming

Red Teaming & Blue Teaming are two different approaches to identifying vulnerabilities in your organisation’s cyber security strategy. In a continuously evolving environment, this is no luxury.

What are red & blue teaming?

The ways in which we work (together) are constantly evolving. Cloud solutions are gaining ground, we work from home more often, and our assets are also geographically dispersed. Malicious entities deliberately abuse this state of affairs. Using red and blue teaming, we can identify the vulnerabilities in your cyber security strategy. This is a practical exercise in which different cyber security teams compete against each other for the purpose of optimising the organisation’s security systems. 

The red team are the attackers. They receive a specific assignment from the client. The blue team acts as the defenders, who are trying to improve the client’s security on a daily basis. The role of blue team is often played by the SOC, in its absence, the organisation’s own IT department. 

What are the benefits?

Insight in vulnerabilities

Red teaming provides you with an actionable list of attack vectors. 

Cybersecurity

Blue teaming increases your organisation’s defensive capabilities and sharpens your detection and response procedures. 

“Out-of-the-box” approach

An “out-of-the-box” approach often reveals previously unsuspected vulnerabilities. 

All-around approach

We look at your organisation’s security through the eyes of both a defender and an attacker.  

What will you get?

  • The Red Team provides you with an up-to-date view of your organisation’s vulnerabilities and reveals which of these vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited by malicious entities.
  • Customised advice will help you learn how to address these vulnerabilities and prevent potential threats.
  • Het Blue TeamThe Blue Team provides you with a longer-term perspective and allows you to increase your organisation’s defensive capabilities.geeft u een perspectief op de langere termijn en laat u toe de defensieve capaciteiten van uw organisatie te verhogen.
Red & blue teaming

How do we work ?

  1. During a kick-off meeting, we determine together with you the objectives and what exactly needs to be tested.
  2. Drawing up a concrete assignment.
  3. Briefing of the red team acting as attackers.
  4. Carrying out the test, with the red team attacking and the blue team defending.
  5. Reporting the findings, potential vulnerabilities and concrete action points for your cybersecurity strategy

 

Why is this a priority? 

Cybercrime remains a hot topic. More than 4 in 10 companies said they had fallen victim to some form of cyberattack last year. To protect yourself, red & blue teaming must permanently be at the top of your priority list. This is the only way can you withstand potential attacks and focus on your core business with the necessary peace of mind.
