Course Description
Red Team Digital Attack Simulations take regular network penetration testing to the next level. Red Team goals are to test the Company’s incident response and monitoring capabilities. A Red Team can reveal the potential economic impact on a company if an attacker were to gain access to their data, including payroll records, HIPAA data, PCI information, trade secrets or other personably identifiable information (PII).
