This talk will discuss what the red team does and the maturity level that an organization should have in order to truly gain value from a red team engagement. This important to discuss because red teams often do not provide as much value as a higher-level assessment (penetration test, vulnerability assessment) due to an organization’s lack of security maturity. Red team engagements are often requested by organization because it is a “buzz word” or “hot term” in security. After attending this talk, the audience will understand the difference between a vulnerability assessment, a penetration test, and a red team engagement. They will understand the maturity level that should be reached before engaging in any of the aforementioned assessment types.
