What is red teaming?
Red teaming is a step above traditional pentesting. It is an offensive objective-driven exercise that simulates real-world attacks by replicating the Techniques, Tactics and Procedures (TTP) of real-world adversaries. It is the most realistic way to assess an organisation's ability to prevent, detect, and respond to cyber attacks.
The role of the red team is to simulate an attack on your organization while causing minimal disruption to day-to-day operations. By setting the objectives to reflect a real-world attack scenario, the engagement becomes representative of the specific threats facing an organization and assesses its ability to defend and respond to the next attack.

It is a deep dive into the risks and vulnerabilities of the business and is also designed to exercise internal teams and their procedures for such an event.
