Offensive Security

Overview

What is Offensive Security?

Simulate customized real-world adversarial behaviors and tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs), criminals employ, to measure your security program’s true effectiveness when faced with persistent and determined attackers.

By incorporating the hacker’s mindset into our services, we provide realistic multi-layered cyber-attacks in order to evaluate the security posture of your organization’s networks, systems, applications, services, cloud computing environment, physical security controls, processes, technologies, and your people’s reaction to real-life conditions.

Types of Offensive Security

Red Teaming

Of all the available cyber security assessments, a simulated cyber-attack is as close as you can get to understanding how prepared your organization is to defend against a skilled and persistent hacker.

 

The main differences between red teaming and penetration testing are depth and scope. Pen testing is designed to identify and exploit as many vulnerabilities as possible over a short period of time, while red teaming is a deeper assessment conducted over a period of weeks and designed to test an organization’s detection and response capabilities and achieve set objectives, such as data exfiltration.

 

A Red Team Operation from Logisek is designed to far exceed the remit of traditional security testing by rigorously challenging the effectiveness of technology, personnel and processes to detect and respond to a highly targeted attack conducted over an extended period of time.

OSINT Investigations

An in-depth open source intelligence investigation will collect, analyze and help you address specific intelligence and information requirements, amongst online available documents, online sources and social media, from the world’s largest database, the Internet.

 

Data mining, various crawling techniques, data extraction, data washing and intelligence analysis will be used to gather and organize the relevant information you are gifting to potential attackers.

Physical Security

Our cyber security experts will reveal real-world opportunities for malicious insiders or bad actors to be able to compromise physical barriers in offices, warehouses, substations, data centers and associated buildings and gain unauthorized physical access to sensitive areas, leading up to data breaches and system/network compromise.

 

The primary objective for a Physical security infiltration testing is to measure the strength of existing physical security controls and uncover their weaknesses. Each team member is highly trained and experienced in the techniques used by professional attackers to infiltrate secure environments.

Social Engineering

A social engineering exercise will mimic customized attacks that determined cybercriminals will use to psychologically manipulate your employees into allowing unauthorized access to confidential information.

 

The human factor is the biggest risk for your IT environment. Social engineering is often more successful than traditional network and application exploitation.

 

Our team will attempt human-based attacks, including tactics, like authority disguises, trusted individual and/or employee impersonation, USB drops, email phishing, fake web pages, bogus telephone calls (vishing), and other common methods, in order to trick individuals into breaking normal security procedures.

Phishing Campaigns

A phishing campaign (Spear phishing, Whaling, Vishing, Smishing) uses social-engineering techniques to lure people into revealing information.

 

Our cyber-security team will use advanced and highly customized phishing techniques disguising as a trustworthy organization, a reputable person, or a well-known company.

 

During the phishing exercise, an email or a telephone message, coming from someone the target knows, such as a co-worker or another trustworthy business, will be sent to the employees. The email and/or the message directs the recipients to enter information at a fake website that looks identical to the legitimate site or download software through links or attachments in order to simulate a real-world phishing attack.

Research and Development

Our vision is to advance our skills, knowledge and capabilities in the areas of IT engineering, cybersecurity, cyber defense and privacy and share our expertise with the entire community.

 

Our innovations result from our continuous scientific research activities, our numerous R&D cyber security projects as well as our participation in a number of open-sourced projects that strengthen the Info-Sec and IT community.

Benefits

Evaluate your response to attack

Learn how prepared your organisation is to respond to a targeted attack designed to test the effectiveness of people and technology.

Identify and classify security risks

Learn whether systems, data and other critical assets are at risk and how easily they could be targeted by adversaries.

Uncover hidden vulnerabilities

By mirroring the latest adversarial tactics, red reaming can help identify hidden vulnerabilities that attackers might seek to exploit.

Address identified exposures

Receive important post-operation support to address any vulnerabilities identified and mitigate the risk of suffering real-life attacks

Enhance blue team effectiveness

By simulating a range of scenarios, red team testing helps your security team to identify and address gaps in threat coverage and visibility.

Prioritise future investments

Better understand your organisation’s security weaknesses and ensure that future investments deliver the greatest benefit.

Objectives

Example goals of a Red Team Operation

reporting

Compromising the account credentials of a company director

Obtaining physical access to a server room

Red Teaming Methodology

A Red Team engagement can provide clients with an attacker’s perspective and deep insight into the security strengths and weaknesses of their cloud and on-premises environments.

Engagements will also define a baseline from which future security improvements can be measured. Our advanced red teaming methodology includes:

 

Quality intelligence is critical to the success of any red team test. Our ethical hackers utilise a variety of OSINT tools, techniques and resources to collect information that could be used to successfully compromise the target. This includes details about networks, employees and in use security systems..

 

Once any vulnerabilities have been identified and a plan of attack formulated, the next stage of any engagement is staging. Staging involves setting up and concealing the infrastructure and resources needed to launch attacks. This can include setting up servers to perform Command & Control (C2) and social engineering activity.

 

The attack delivery phase of a Red Team Operation involves compromising and obtaining a foothold on the target network. In the course of pursuing their objective, our ethical hackers may attempt to exploit discovered vulnerabilities, use bruteforce to crack weak employee passwords, and create fake email communications to launch phishing attacks and drop malicious payloads.

 

Once a foothold is obtained on the target network, the next phase of the engagement is focussed on achieving the objective(s) of the Red Team Operation. Activities at this stage can include lateral movement across the network, privilege escalation and data extraction.

 

Following completion of the red team assessment, a comprehensive final report is prepared to help technical and non-technical personnel understand the success of the exercise, including an overview of vulnerabilities discovered, attack vectors used and recommendations about how to remediate and mitigate risks.
