Red teams can be thought of as vaccines for cyberspace – controlled, benign exposures to threats which will train your defenses to detect and combat threats before you encounter them for the first time. Due to the speed at which threats in cyberspace evolve, however, the frequency at which organizations need to expose and test their cyber defenses against ‘doses’ of new, emerging threats is increasing. To meet this demand, BreachBits has developed a solution that makes the benefits of red teaming available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, allowing organizations to test themselves continuously against the latest threats, from ransomware to supply chain attacks. We will discuss red teaming, its benefits, and how BreachBits is supporting our customers’ efforts to ‘immunize’ their cyber defenses with continuous, realistic adversarial testing of their cyber defenses.
