Dynamic Physical & Informational Security Testing

Course Description:

Vetting Security for Consultants and Personal Protection Specialists (PPS)

Our focus will be on the simulation of active threats, we will be taking the opposing approach to what many of us have learned in the security industry and become proactive instead of reactive. Our focus and thought processes will become that of the “bad guy”. Explore the weaknesses of both physical security program, along with information security programs.

Only by exposing weaknesses in protective measures, the security processes, and people, can we understand where gaps are and develop remediation plans to correct these gaps. Without this type of active testing, we leave organizations, or our employers/employees and our principal(s) exposed to attack vectors we may not have anticipated or thoughtfully planned for.

During this session, we will cover the following topics:

  • What is red teaming and why do it?
  • Basic Open-Source Intelligence and On-Site Recon
  • Understanding Common Physical Security Controls
  • Understanding common tools used during testing
  • Physical Threat Simulation Attacks
  • Electronic Threat Simulation Attacks

The traditional definition of a red team, in the military and security industry, is a group that plays the role of an enemy or competitor and provides security feedback from that perspective.

Red Teaming typically occurs in two methods.

  • The first method is the tabletop exercise, where attack scenarios are discussed and then defensive reactions and remediation actions, where needed, are defined.
  • The second method is the active threat simulation. In this method, a team of ‘operators’ are deployed to actively attack the organization, typically with no notification to the physical security or information security staff.

An adversary is most vulverable to detection and disruption just prior to an attack. Red Team Rule #24
