The Stress Test for Your Cybersecurity

What would you do if you felt that someone could easily break into your home? Maybe install an alarm system? Or install new windows and burglar-proof doors? And then ask the police to assess how safe your home is? Due to the versatility, complexity and required expertise, it is not as simple when it comes to the topic of cyber security. In red teaming, real attack scenarios are simulated and acted out. You can think of it as a gang of burglars using all means at their disposal to find a suitable vulnerability to break into your IT infrastructure. Unlike malicious hackers, they do not cause any damage, but help you identify vulnerabilities. After using our red teams, you will know exactly where hackers can also penetrate or compromise your systems. A proactive red teaming project gives you a head start on implementing measures before hackers cause damage.

Red teaming is a comprehensive simulation of an attack on your company. We test whether vulnerabilities exist, whether they can be exploited, and how your company will react in a cyber emergency. This allows risks to be assessed and measures to be defined and implemented.

With a red teaming project from Oneconsult you can address the following questions:

  • Red Teaming: Can my company be hacked by the red team?
  • Blue Teaming: Does my company react appropriately in a cyber incident staged by the red team?
  • Purple Teaming: Does the interaction of offense (red team) and defense (blue team) work well?

In each of these, you receive a customized, detailed final report. The report details the vulnerabilities that were exploited for the attack and assesses the associated risks. It also contains context-appropriate recommendations for measures.


  • Digital attack simulation
  • Social engineering
  • Spearphishing
  • Physical assessments
  • Customizable attack scenarios (e.g., APT groups)
  • Individual scoping including red teaming, blue teaming, and purple teaming
  • Comprehensive testing of technical and/or organizational IT security measures
  • Use of techniques from the MITRE ATT&CK® framework
  • Documentation tailored to the target group, including effective proposals for action

Evaluate the Effectiveness of Your IT Security Measures With Red Teaming

The techniques used in red teaming include:

  • Social engineering
  • Phishing
  • Exploiting misconfigurations
  • Physical assessments (physical access and entry)
  • Exploiting
  • Reverse engineering
  • Simulation of specific attack patterns and offender profiles

You will find the explanations of terms in our glossary.

Procedure of our Red Teaming Simulation

High quality in red teaming projects is ensured by means of proven and standardized procedures and with additional optional modules:

Red Teaming Prozess Oneconsult

After completion of the test activities, you will receive a detailed final report oriented toward the target group, which includes the following information:

  • Management summary
  • Project goals
  • Defined scenarios and framework
  • Scenario iterations
  • Findings (security vulnerabilities including risk categorization)
  • Recommended measures

During the optional but highly recommended final meeting including presentation, the results are explained, and the recommended measures are discussed in detail.


We provide consultation independent of any particular solution, on an individual basis and adapted to your needs. From the initial idea to the planning and successful implementation of a red teaming project, we are happy to be at your side. Regardless of whether you would like to examine specific scenarios or would like us to make suggestions based on current topics – you can count on us. Conducting a red teaming simulation makes a significant contribution to ensuring that your company and systems are as secure as possible against intruders.


Have we sparked your interest in red teaming?

We look forward to hearing from you.

A penetration test and red team audit have similar goals, but different approaches. Penetration testing focuses on identifying vulnerabilities and security flaws in a specific environment. Red teaming, on the other hand, goes a step further and simulates a real attack on an organization to comprehensively test its defensive capabilities, among other things. Red teams act like a real attacker and use various tactics, techniques and procedures to exploit vulnerabilities and find weaknesses. For more information, see our blog, «The Differences Between Penetration Test and Red Teaming».

Red teaming provides a holistic audit of one or more scenarios and systems. It shows how vulnerabilities can be exploited. Likewise, it reveals how an organization’s defenses and implemented security measures and processes work. Through the findings, organizations can improve their defense capabilities, eliminate vulnerabilities, and strengthen their incident response management. Red teaming promotes understanding of the risks, helps the blue team, and assists in developing a proactive security culture.

The effort of a red teaming is set significantly higher compared to a penetration test. Depending on the objectives or security level, it can take up to 6 months.
