Abstract:The master thesis presents red teaming, that is an adversary attack simulation which challenges people and systems. This thesis illustrates its main phases, along with its benefits and limitations. Moreover, it discusses the use of red teaming as solution to reduce uncertainty in cybersecurity investments, consequently allowing focused investments in companies regardless of their size, lastly improving their overall cybersecurity. It also provides a unique insight into the service through the analysis of data collected by interviewing red team vendors and clients (CISOs), and thereby identifying strengths and weaknesses in the service. Follows, an examination of two reports given by the providers of the service, and an introduction to the TIBER-EU framework, describing its benefits and challenges. Indeed, the framework aims to improve the resilience of organizations’ infrastructures through red teaming, recommending the service and in this way increasing its key role in cyber defense practices. In addition, the dissertation delves into the Cyber Threat Intelligence subject, highlighting why it results in a good combination with red team activities.
