From Half Life Theory …
Red Teaming is a tactic that’s gained some notoriety in recent years. The basic idea is that you take on the mantle of the “enemy”, and you do your best to compromise your own defenses. You think, how would the enemy render me vulnerable…. Is there anything about my strategy that can be exploited by the enemy.
The goal of this exercise is that you understand the mindset of the enemy, and you also know where your weaknesses possibly lie. So, you can take the results of such an exercise, and come out on the other end stronger than before.
That to me is what makes this concept so powerful!
