Adversary Emulation Exercise
The CrowdStrike® Adversary Emulation Exercise is designed to give your organization the experience of a sophisticated targeted attack by real-world threat actors without the damage or costs of experiencing an actual breach.
Adversaries are constantly evolving their attack tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs), and organizations must make sure they are ready for a targeted attack. The ability to withstand one attack doesn’t mean you have the tools to withstand another. Organizations face the following challenges:
Failure to Detect Sophisticated Attacks
Attackers can go undetected for long periods of time, so organizations need to continuously test their security team’s ability to detect and respond to today’s sophisticated, targeted attacks.
Ineffective Security Controls
Organizations need to validate that their current security controls and processes are effective against today’s evolving adversary TTPs.
Adversaries can quickly exploit vulnerabilities and achieve lateral movement across your network, and you need to identify gaps in your current security posture to understand how an attacker may breach your network.
The Benefits of Adversary Emulation
Test Your Response to Targeted Attacks
An Adversary Emulation Exercise allows your organization to test your security team against the latest threats posing the greatest risk to your industry.
Test the Effectiveness of Security Controls
A focus on objective-based testing demonstrates the effectiveness of your security controls and incident response processes.
Evaluate Your Maturity Level
Measure your organization’s cybersecurity maturity level by evaluating it across the phases of the MITRE ATT&CK® framework.
What CrowdStrike Delivers
Once the exercise concludes, you receive:
An Adversary Attack Overview
Documented proof of how a targeted attacker could penetrate your network and compromise sensitive assets, and/or documentation showing what defensive capabilities succeeded in preventing the simulated attack
Recommendations for Improvement
An analysis of your organization’s strengths and weaknesses to help you prioritize future investments and provide recommendations on how to further mature your cybersecurity
Analysis and Observations
The opportunity to meet with the CrowdStrike team and discuss your organization’s detection and response capabilities during the targeted attack emulation
