What is Red Teaming and why it is important


A penetration test in cybersecurity entails ethical hackers attempting to break into a computer system with no element of surprise. The blue team (defending team) is aware of the penetration test and prepared to defend themselves.

Physical penetration, social engineering, and an element of surprise are all used by a red team. The blue team is unaware of the presence of a red squad and will take it as a genuine threat.

A red-teaming assessment resembles a penetration test, except it is more focused. The purpose is to put the company’s detection and reaction skills to the test. The red team will use all means at their disposal to gain access to sensitive material as quietly as possible.
