DEF CON 2018

Red Teams are designed to penetrate security in a real world test of effectiveness of security controls, policy, technology and infrastructure.

During this presentation we will walk through a Red Team Assessment that simulates a state sponsored attack against Executives, and using their access to then test the entire security posture of the organisation from a digital, physical, social and supply chain.
