Purple Team Assessment
Intelligence Driven Cyber Security Operations
Our purple team assessment integrates the skills of our Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR) and Threat and Attack Simulation (TAS) Teams, turning tabletop exercises into dynamic live-fire scenarios. These authentic attack simulations, led by offensive professionals (Red) with the guidance of experienced DFIR specialists (Blue), comprehensively evaluate your organization’s security posture and incident procedures, revealing any vulnerabilities and offering top-notch recommendations based on best practices.
By embracing Purple Team Assessments, your organisation can effectively diminish its threat profile through the utilization of realistic and coordinated attack scenarios. These assessments combine the efforts of your Blue Team defenders and Red Team attackers, enabling the simulation of authentic cyber threats that may go undetected using traditional evaluation methods. The collaborative nature of Purple Team Assessments encourages the exchange of knowledge between these teams, fostering a deeper understanding of defensive and offensive strategies. Through a recurring cycle of assessments, your organization can continuously refine its security strategies and bolster its incident response capabilities. This approach not only validates the efficacy of your current security controls but also mitigates the risk of successful cyber attacks, aligns with regulatory compliance mandates, and provides concrete evidence of potential risks to executive stakeholders. Ultimately, Purple Team Assessments pave the way for a heightened security posture, fortified incident response readiness, and an enhanced culture of proactive cybersecurity measures.
Our approach to Purple Team Assessment
During this phase, the red team collaborates closely with the blue team to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your security program’s capabilities, controls, and technologies. The areas of focus include monitoring, active defense, response, and physical security measures.
- Perform active exploitation of the pre-defined tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP)
- Define an open collaboration session with your security operations and incident response staff
- Provide recommendations and incident insights into investigative techniques based on awareness of your capabilities and solutions
- Assist with confirmation of relevant detection and prevention outcomes to ensure valuable coverage and progress
Whenever the red team identifies any control weakness or gap, we stand ready to assist the blue team in making improvements or creating additional controls. This may involve developing modifications, rules, signatures, or integrations specifically designed to address the identified deficiencies.
Each purple team assessment is strategically crafted to empower your internal security team toward self-sufficiency. Our training program, led by the expertise of our Threat and Attack Simulation team in conjunction with our Digital Forensics and Incident Response team, offers valuable direction and guidance on threat investigation processes, enabling your team to grow and excel in handling security challenges effectively.
During the concluding phase, our team delivers a comprehensive report detailing our observations throughout the test execution, documenting all activities and responses. This report presents a summary of your overall security posture and includes recommended remediation efforts. Additionally, upon delivery, our team can conduct further remediation testing as needed.
