We also brought you, “Hacking The Grid”

For the first time ever, there is a training course that is more like an actual live Red Team Operation. The training converges Physical Infiltration/Security, Social Engineering and Penetration testing for full-training exercises with students breaking into actual offices/buildings (legally, of course), hacking systems/apps, and social engineering real people, face to face. There are no actors and there is no other information security training like this today.

Red Team TrainingThe goal of the training is to immerse the student in as much of a real Red Team Operation as possible. Soup to nuts, the instructors will guide students as they undergo a full-cycle Red Team Operation from the planning phase to the reporting phase. At every step, RedTeam’s experiences, techniques, tactics and procedures will be integrated and make up the core foundation of the entire course.

RedTeam Security has developed a unique training program that includes paid, but unknowing participants, as real life targets. The students will exercise their newly acquired skills and tactics by carrying out social engineering attacks in-person, by phone and over email. Covert entry skills and other physical security attacks (ie: lock picking, evasion, diversions, physical pretexting) are simulated against surrounding and cooperating offices and/or buildings. No Red Team Operation goes 100% as planned and this approach provides students with priceless experience without the consequences of a failed Operation. It doesn’t get any more real than this.
