It takes an offensive mentality to build a cyber defense capability that’s consistently effective. That can only be achieved by emulating realistic cyber attacks to stress test your organization’s security capabilities across people, process, and technology. Our Adversary Simulation services are designed to do exactly this; by replicating sophisticated targeted attacks, we can assess your organization’s ability to prevent, detect, and respond to the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that would be used against your estate.
In isolation, adversarial simulation exercises, such as red teaming, can't and won't lead to an uplift in your security posture. Instead, they should be delivered alongside other defensive initiatives within a continuous cyber security program—otherwise known as rainbow teaming—to support its development. This holistic approach uses capabilities across predict, prevent, detect, and respond (PPDR) to test, measure, design, and implement improvements that increase your security posture—one capability of which is the adversarial approach.
Adversarial simulation must be authentic, but it must also be a safe learning experience that develops and improves your security team. Over the years, it’s our communication, collaboration, and safeguarding practices that clients have celebrated the most. For those operating in and outside of regulated industries, our project management approach keeps them in safe hands, guiding them through the process and working to limit the inherent risks associated with a live, hands-on-keyboard attack simulation.
Our adversary simulation exercises are planned and executed by an offensive security team whose understanding and application of the attacker mindset can be attributed to years of research, tooling development, and testing, and access to the real-world experience of our global incident response (IR) and threat detection capability. Having worked on the frontline and honed these skills for over a decade, we've delivered threat intelligence-led, industry-specific security assessments globally, including CBEST, TIBER-EU, and iCAST. We also hold CREST CCSAS and CCSAM certification.
As part of our contracted breach and attack simulation services, our offensive security consultants have been able to successfully realize Computer Network Exploitation (CNE), facilitating reconnaissance and espionage, as well as Computer Network Attacks (CNA) with the potential to cause damage, destroy, or disrupt computer networks.
Targeted Attack Simulation (TAS) is our adaptable methodology for offensive testing, which blends elements of red, blue, and purple teaming approaches. It acts as a master framework on which a range of customizable solutions are predicated. TAS-based exercises are goal-oriented and authentically replicate the behavior of a specific APT and threat actor whose motivations and means are unique to your organization. These are designed according to your desired security and/or business outcomes, including:
Our approach to offensive engagements logically applies the attacker mindset, using our consultants’ direct experience of detecting, responding to, and researching cyber attacks. This gives us a holistic, technical understanding of how real-world threat actor groups operate, how their attacks materialize, how they evade security controls, and how organizations can effectively defend themselves.
