Our Methodology

The Squawk Red Team relies on a systematic, repeatable, and reproducible methodology. We begin by establishing the following core information and rules of engagement, agreed upon in collaboration with the organization’s leadership team:

  • Does the red team begin its effort with information about your environment (white box) or with no information at all (black box)?
  • What intelligence does SquawkRed already have about high-risk assets and vulnerabilities in your industry?
  • What objectives do you want the red team to accomplish in simulating a real-world attack?

Once the objectives are set, the red team starts by conducting initial reconnaissance. SquawkRed leverages a combination of proprietary intelligence repositories as well as open-source intelligence (OSINT) tools and techniques to perform reconnaissance of the target environment.

SquawkRed attempts to gain initial access to the target environment by exploiting vulnerabilities or conducting a social engineering attack, and leverages techniques used by real-world attackers to gain privileged access to these systems.

Once access is gained, the red team attempts to escalate privileges to establish and maintain persistence within the environment by deploying a command and control infrastructure, just like an attacker would.

After persistence and command and control systems are established within the environment, the red team attempts to accomplish its objectives through any non-disruptive means necessary.
