Adversary Simulation - Become Proactive Rather Than Reactive to Potential Threats
As discussed in the first blog of this series, when going through our recent rebranding process our team took a long hard look at the list of services we offered. On the back of this, we decided to sort our services into a more coherent structure to make it easier for clients to understand which service is right for them.
Today, we take a closer look at our Adversary Simulation service line. This service line was developed to help our clients understand how they should respond to an attack. We focus on the effectiveness of your security controls and your organisation’s ability to identify and contain an attack.
Our adversary simulations replicate real-world attack to determine your response capabilities and highlight gaps for improvement across your organisation. As the business concerns for each client is specific to the sector they operate, so too are the attacks they are likely to encounter. Secora Consulting works with you to understand your requirements and with this information, we provide insight on which combination of services would be most effective in improving your detection and response capabilities.
Why do you need Adversary Simulation?
Building strong security controls and processes is essential to building effective defences. However, not knowing how effective these controls are can be problematic when facing a potential breach. By engaging in Adversary Simulations, you can test the controls and process in place and provide practice opportunities for your teams to detect and respond to effectively before a real scenario occurs.
What Adversary Simulation services are available?
At Secora Consulting, our security consultants have the experience and expertise to conduct a wide array of testing scenarios for our clients to ensure your needs are met. Our structured service offering of Adversary Simulation is broken into three coherent components, Social Engineering Assessment, Physical Security Assessment and Red Team Engagements. You can mix and match between our service lines and categories to simulate real-world attacks hackers could subject your organisation to, this enables us to provide you with suitable mitigation strategies on how to prevent such attacks from happening.
Social Engineering Assessment
Our social engineering assessments are a simulation of real-world attacks your organisation is likely to encounter, to see if we can compromise the integrity of many aspects of your organisation through tailored email (phishing) or telephone campaigns. Our service is not designed to “catch you out”, we are here to help you identify any gaps which may exist in your policies and procedures and highlight any associated risks.
Physical Security Assessment
During our physical security assessments, our specialised team simulates how an attacker could gain physical access to your premises to retrieve sensitive documentation, connect to your network or simply steal company equipment. Our service aims to identify and test any weak entry points around your premises and make policy and procedure recommendations to mitigate these risks.
Red Team Engagements
Our red team engagement combines multiple service lines to deliver a tailored threat simulation which is designed to provide insight into how an attacker could breach your security controls, how they might operate once inside your organisation and provide you with invaluable insight to assist in developing your defence capabilities. As attackers like to mix things up, our services are tailored to replicate realistic threats to your organisation. We will help you understand your threat landscape and recommend policies and procedures which will increase your cybersecurity posture.
All of Secora Consulting's assessments are tailored to our client's needs.
Using our experience, we can help you determine which services are right for you.
We have arranged our services into four groups based on the objective of the tests.
