Red teaming.

The full-throttle approach to testing your cybersecurity. Find out how your cyber defences hold up against a real cyber attack with our world-class testing team. 

What is red teaming?

Red Teaming isn’t your typical security assessment. Unlike the methodical approach of penetration testing, red teaming is about imitating real-world attacks that emulate adversaries’ tactics, techniques, and procedures. These tests provide a litmus test of your organisation’s readiness, exposing security program gaps and skill deficiencies within your workforce. The beauty of red teaming lies in its unpredictability; each engagement is a unique challenge and situation. Some might target personal information, while others could zero in on financial data or domain administrator access.

How good are your defences?

Many well-funded, mature companies have a security budget that allows for investment in vulnerability management programs, regular penetration testing, SOC teams, and incident response. Yet, breaches still happen to these large companies.


Imagine if those attackers came to your company with the same tactics. How would you detect it, how long would it take, and could you figure out what they did?

These are the questions a red team engagement aims to answer in a controlled environment.

The MITRE ATT&CK® Framework

At OmniCyber, we follow the MITRE ATT&CK® framework, a globally-accessible knowledge base rooted in real-world observations of adversary tactics and techniques. It encompasses two main components: PRE-ATT&CK and ATT&CK Tactics. Through this framework, we achieve several critical objectives:


  • Test controls and their efficacy
  • Ensure coverage against different techniques
  • Understand gaps in visibility or protection
  • Validate the configuration of tools and systems
  • Demonstrate where different actors would be successful or would be caught in the environment
  • Avoid guesses and assumptions with controls by knowing exactly what is detected or mitigated and what is not

A Comprehensive Approach

PRE-ATT&CK and ATT&CK Enterprise combine to form the full list of tactics that happen to roughly align with the Cyber Kill Chain. PRE-ATT&CK mostly aligns with the first three phases of the kill chain: reconnaissance, weaponization, and delivery. ATT&CK Enterprise aligns well with the final four phases of the kill chain: exploitation, installation, command & control, and actions on objectives.
