Red Team / Blue Team Exercise

The CrowdStrike Red Team / Blue Team Exercise helps prepare your cybersecurity team and learn from our experts as the CrowdStrike Red Team attacks and the Blue Team helps your team defend against a targeted attack within your environment.

The challenge

Attack tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) are constantly evolving and every organization should know how to identify, stop, and prevent a breach. The complexity of today’s cyber threats creates challenges for organizations:

Misconfigured security tools

Many organizations have a complex suite of security tools they count on to protect their organization. The challenge is understanding whether or not these tools are efficient or capable of preventing a modern-day attack.

Weak detection and response policies

Organizations may have many security tools in place, but lack the mature detection and response policies and procedures required to prevent modern-day attacks from occurring.

Lack of training for malicious activity

Security teams do not regularly train to detect malicious activity using the security tools within their environments. This can leave organizations vulnerable to sophisticated attacks.

The benefits
of a Red Team / Blue Team Exercise

  • Identify misconfigured tools and coverage gaps
    Discover and identify misconfigurations and coverage gaps in existing security products.
  • Detect targeted attacks
    Walk through the phases of a targeted attack and understand the approach of real-world threat actors and how to detect their activity within your environment.
  • Mature your threat hunting knowledge
    Focus on maturing your security team’s threat hunting knowledge and overall incident response processes in a safe training environment.

What CrowdStrike delivers

A CrowdStrike Red Team / Blue Team Exercise typically traces along the kill chain path of: active reconnaissance, delivery and exploitation, command and control, operations and after-action review. Once the exercise concludes, CrowdStrike provides actionable guidance:

  • Summary of vulnerabilities exploited
    A summary of the vulnerabilities exploited during the simulation
  • Summary of TTPs used
    A summary of the TTPs used during the simulation
  • Observations from incident responders
    Observations and recommendations from the hands-on incident response training conducted during simulation pauses
  • Recommendations for improvements
    Recommendations on process, methodology and technology deficiencies observed during the entire simulation

Why CrowdStrike?

Real-world targeted attack scenarios

CrowdStrike Red Teams have extensive penetration testing experience and understanding of today’s TTPs used in sophisticated attacks.

Cyber kill chain process

CrowdStrike Red Teams incorporate the same tools and techniques that adversaries use to mirror a targeted attack that follows the steps of the cyber kill chain.

Advanced threat intelligence

CrowdStrike Blue Teams provide insight into adversarial tactics and techniques that specifically target your vertical. The Blue Team helps you better understand potential threats and how to protect yourself against a targeted attack.
