What is a Red Team Exercise and Why Is It Important? | SimSpace

An actual cyber attack shouldn't be the first time your team responds to a cybersecurity incident. Just like a firefighter wouldn't run into a burning building without prior training and experience, cybersecurity professionals need preparation and practice before responding to real-world threats. That’s where red team exercises shine. Red team exercises are simulated attacks designed to challenge and test an organization's defenses, incident response capabilities, preparedness, and overall resilience. The results yielded can help organizations identify and fix vulnerabilities in their security systems, enabling better prevention, detection, and response to cyberattacks.
