The Exclusive Red Team in the Cyber Security

Guest post contributed by Ester Adams

The Cyber Community – explained.

Cyber communities arise when problems originate digitally. They are engaged in computer-mediated communication. Their language is far more complicated than our local language. But, they possess the skills to translate the computer language in a way that locals can understand.  Online communities are subjected to lesser physical restrictions compared to their offline counterparts. It shows a new level of market segmentation that goes beyond psycho-graphics. The automated red teaming helps to secure the organisation’s security intact. There are a few types of communities in the cybersecurity

  • 1) Natural Community.
  • 2) Constructed Community.
  • 3) Symmetrical Community.
  • 4) Asymmetrical Community.
  • 5) Transient Community.
  • 6) Permanent Community.

Natural Communities

They arise from human interactions and the exchange of emotional support.

Constructed Communities

They were created with the main purpose of facilitating the transaction of emotional support.

Symmetrical Communities

This happens when the community is in requirement of social recognition of the membership of a group.

Asymmetrical Communities

They have a non-reciprocal community structure. Unilateral friendship is provided where you follow someone, and they don’t follow you back.

Transient Communities

One can notice this community’s presence only at those times when the group is active.

Permanent Communities

This community only uses dedicated internet locations.

These are a few concepts of cybersecurity:

It’s more like, cyber communities, a collection of skilled human beings who support a self-selected group. They share common values and get connected across the globe for a specific reason. They invest all their time and power in the findings.

Communication plays a significant role in this community. It is also defined as the seamless integration of communication technology. The community also has social interactions between them. They are advised to express themselves. For them, conversation and communication are not the same.

There are different colored teams in the cyber community. But the red team will be briefly discussed in this article.

  • 1)The red team.
  • 2)The yellow team.
  • 3)The blue team.
  • 4)The purple team.
  • 5)The orange team.


The red team is known as the breakers. They help organisations to better themselves by confronting them with the points of opposition. They are very effective, and they help companies in the process of overcoming cultural bias and also help them to widen their problem-solving capacity.  The automated red teaming is also known as the red cell. They are a big group of hackers with different varieties of backgrounds. They are bent on testing the organisation’s assumptions based on the digital presence.

Their main aim is to attack, and they work with the motto of “A good offence is the best defence”. They split into three groups for the attack activity.

1)Cyber – works for the digital and computerized attacks.

2) Social – work on the attacks on the behavior of people.

3) Physical – an attack on the facilities or anything available in an organisation.

The automated red teaming has proved to be of great use to our society.

The Red Team Tools is made up of a big list. There are more than 50 red team tools.  Many of them can be found in the Kali Linux distribution.  A few of them are:

A camera with 83X Optical, an under door tool, a pick set, a red flashlight, night vision binoculars, super high powered surveillance camera, mini camera pens, thermal imaging camera, LED mini portable tactical, chest mount harness, goggle hidden camera, tactical combat trousers, military hard knuckle tactical, mini day pack, TDU long-sleeve shirts, all-weather spiral notebook, camera in a watch, ninja back climbing wireless, super knife, wireless endoscope, portable ID copier, backlights, shove it a tool, Convert in-ear headsets, pump wedge, bash bunny, spy tester, Field kit, prime care HB, LED multiple functioned digital watches, tripods, etc.

Red team’s efficiency

The red team people are a group trained in the art of hacking. They use their skills ethically, so they are known as ethical or white hat hackers.  These groups impose challenges for companies to test their ability and effectiveness by assuming an adversarial role or point of view. The leaders recognize the risk, and later they approach Cyber Security to minimize their risk. They help the company to identify its weaknesses and vulnerabilities.

They take the company to the next level. The organization may choose to bring in a red team. After they are brought in, they start to cooperate with the trusted agents of the organization. After this, it depends on the red team to portray the skills they possess and establish their intellectual abilities. They are also responsible for removing or erasing the weaknesses present in the company or the organization. From all given data, they prove to be one of the best teams in the community.
