ATTACK SIMULATION

To be sure of their effectiveness, cyber defences must be regularly stress-tested against current adversarial tactics, techniques, and procedures.
An Attack Simulation exposes the organisation to a credible threat in an authentic setting. It provides the opportunity to test and exercise prevention, detection,
and response capabilities and controls over the course of a realistic, end-to-end cyber attack.

Let’s talk

CAPABILITY OVERVIEW

Many variations of Attack Simulation exist in the cyber security marketplace today, from clandestine black-box testing to the collaborative review and improvement of controls, forcing many buyers to choose between pre-defined services. Our flexible delivery model is not constrained to a specific approach and can be tailored to deliver the information and outcomes you need. 

Our Attack Simulation methodology is designed to be authentic and realistic, but also highly pragmatic. We marry technical excellence with a consultative approach to ensure that the engagement is aligned with your requirements, often deviating from an industry standard approach and creating novel delivery models to solve specific client detection and response challenges. 

OUTCOMES

Validate capability effectiveness

Test and exercise your teams in a realistic live environment to accurately assess strengths and weaknesses

Identify improvement opportunities

Highlight capability and control gaps across people, process and technology to build further cyber resilience

Demonstrate business risk reduction

Communicate risk exposure, and the value of investment, by highlighting the business impact of an attack

Further your security initiatives

Achieve your desired outcomes and gather evidence to evolve and improve your security operating model

SOLUTIONS

The list below isn’t exhaustive and we regularly combine elements (and add new ones) to create custom solutions, solving unique challenges and delivering specific outcomes for our clients.

A Red Team is typically a covert, clandestine exercise performed from the perspective of a realistic external attacker, leveraging adversarial tradecraft and tooling relative to the threat profile of the organisation being targeted. We use a flexible delivery model, ranging from full, black-box simulation of an external attacker, to an assumed compromise scenario where the attack is launched from a pre-existing foothold on the network, to meet a range of client requirements and budgets.

Purple Team

A Purple Team is a collaborative approach to measuring detection efficacy and highlighting capability and control gaps. Whilst a Red Team exercise is designed to prove that compromise is possible by achieving a specific, high-impact ‘goal’, a Purple Team is designed to more broadly evaluate and improve the efficacy of detection controls along various attack paths. It is optimised to focus on improvement over realism, substituting the black-box nature of a Red Team for a more engaging testing and learning environment.

Ransomware Simulation

Ransomware attacks are one of the most prevalent cyber threats facing organisations today. As a skilled and motivated attacker will inevitably breach even the most hardened external defences, it is important that organisations maintain layered defensive controls. We assess your overall susceptibility to ransomware attack, and the effectiveness of prevention and detection controls in either blocking malicious activity or prompting containment of the threat; from perimeter breach, to encryption, to recovery from backups. 

Malware Simulation

Endpoint-level anti-exploitation controls are among the first lines of defence against internet-based threats. Effective malware defences must both prevent and detect the running of malicious executables enabling an attacker to achieve code execution on a device. We target a standard end-user device and account with normal levels of privilege, delivering and running a range of malware executables in a controlled environment to assess the efficacy of technical malware defences.

EDR / MDR Assessment

Organisations looking to evaluate the efficacy of a third-party product or managed service typically simulate a large volume of offensive actions against a small number of devices. However, this type of approach fails to replicate the flow or context of a real-world scenario. We use a goal-focused approach which assesses solution efficacy in a realistic, representative environment and considers various aspects of the service, including managed elements, providing the evidence to enable confident investment decisions to be made.
