QRC offers a specialized security assessment service known as Red Teaming. The objective of this assessment is to evaluate the security posture of an organization and identify vulnerabilities that might be exploited by real-world attackers. The assessment is carried out by simulating various attack scenarios to identify weak points in the current defence mechanism.

Our Red Teaming assessment is ideal for organizations that handle sensitive assets and require technical, physical or process-based security measures. The assessment is comprehensive and covers a thorough evaluation of the target organisation's networks, systems, applications and personnel. Our team of skilled penetration testers uses various techniques to exploit vulnerabilities and misconfigurations that threat actors might exploit. Unlike traditional penetration testing, our Red Teaming assessment goes beyond identifying vulnerabilities and emulates the tactics and techniques of potential adversaries.


The process of Red Teaming involves several critical steps that are designed to test the effectiveness of an organization's security measures.

Scope Definition

Discuss and define the scope of the testing, which includes outlining the systems, networks, personnel, and scenarios that will be tested. This is done to establish guidelines and rules of engagement that will ensure controlled testing. It is also important to communicate the boundaries of what is in-scope and out-of-scope.

Information Gathering

Gather intelligence about the organization, this includes conducting reconnaissance to collect information about the networks, systems, personnel, applications, technologies used, and threat vectors. Existing threat intelligence is also analysed to understand current threats and tactics used by potential adversaries.

Assessment Planning

This phase involves designing and developing a realistic attack scenario based on the intelligence gathered and threat analysis. The strategic plan, goals, and success criteria of each goal for each attack scenario are also defined to ensure they align with the assessment timelines.

Assessment Execution

The assessment execution phase is where the real-world attacks are simulated using approved scenarios and techniques. This involves a thorough technical assessment including penetration testing, vulnerability analysis, and exploitation of identified vulnerabilities and misconfigurations

Source Code Review

Exploitation and Lateral Movement

The exploitation and lateral movement phase involves attempting to exploit the identified vulnerabilities to assess the effectiveness of the existing security controls

Source Code Review

Post exploitation

Testers attempt to escalate privileges to gain unauthorized access and perform lateral movement within the network to access the ability to pivot from one compromised system to another

Source Code Review

Risk Prioritization

This phase involves identifying and prioritizing risks based on their severity and potential impact on the organization. This includes analyzing the findings to determine which vulnerabilities pose a greater risk

Source Code Review

Documentation and Reporting

The documentation and reporting phase involves reporting all findings, successful attack vectors, and identified vulnerabilities, along with actionable recommendations to address these vulnerabilities and weaknesses to enhance the security posture of the organization
