Red Team

Can hackers penetrate your network and gain access to your sensitive data or impact operations? Find out with red team testing. A highly skilled team of experienced penetration testers are given creative freedom to “think like hackers” and see how far they can go in your network. The red team will have customized goals, and use a combination of attack techniques to not only penetrate your network, but also identify and exploit vulnerabilities in your people, processes, facilities and technology to capture their target data.


Discover how security weaknesses can be leveraged to gain unauthorized access to information resources.

Determine the effectiveness of novel attacks or combined techniques (such as phishing combined with penetration testing).

Identify key vulnerabilities that can realistically be exploited by hackers and provide recommendations.


How would real-world attackers break into your network? A red team test is designed to answer this question. Red team testing is an attempt to gain access to your network and systems through any means necessary. If you want to know how a real attacker could target your network and gain a deeper understanding of your strengths and weaknesses, red team testing can be a highly effective exercise. Nothing is off limits—ethical hackers use techniques including penetration testing of internal and external assets, web applications, wireless networks, virtual and/or physical social engineering, and more. You’ll also get a report detailing any security gaps with actionable advice on how to remediate the issues.

Red team testing can help you uncover:

  • Vulnerabilities in your network
  • Physical facility or employee training vulnerabilities
  • How far in your network a hacker could travel and what data they could access
  • Incident response capabilities to stop the breach quickly and effectively

As shown in a recent red team test performed by CISA, red team testing can uncover vulnerabilities even in highly cyber mature organizations.


Our services are designed to give you the best value for your red team testing dollar. We also enable you to guide and customize our services to ensure we focus on any areas of special concern. Our team of expert ethical hackers will:  

  • Design a customized scope. We work with your team to establish the “rules for the road” and unique goals for your red team testing assessment. You can decide the scope of testing, targets, action vectors and more.  
  • Conduct initial reconnaissance and present your team with an attack plan (if desired). The initial reconnaissance phase may include port scans, social media scrapes, researching your organization’s online presence, email harvesting, physical facility mapping and remote examination, and other activities. 
  • Conduct a thorough red team testing attack. Our experienced testers follow the “intrusion kill chain” model. They are given creative freedom to “think like hackers” and select from a variety of attack vectors (selected from within your guidelines if you require restrictions).  
  • Seek to expand access and privileges (within any preset boundaries). Upon obtaining access to the target flags, LMG’s testers will take previously agreed upon actions that can include: capturing images of the flags, exfiltrating data, attempting to bypass data loss prevention controls to exfiltrate data, and more. 
  • Provide a detailed and actionable red team testing report. After the red team testing activities, we analyze the results and deliver detailed reports that include everything from an executive summary with top risks, to detailed technical results and a remediation matrix to help you strengthen your security posture.
