Course Abstract

Practical Red Team Tradecraft for Adversary Simulation features three course sections where students learn and develop skills to plan & execute adversary simulations against a mature Enterprise network that comprises of Active Directory and Endpoint Protection Services.

This training covers practical Red Team tradecraft ranging from the building of a modern-day Red Team Infrastructure to weaponizing evasive techniques to slip-by endpoint detections, and ends with the infiltration of an multi-forest Active Directory network.

By the end of this training, students will be able to carry out a full-blown Red Team engagements consistently to measure the effectiveness of People, Process, and Technology pillars employed by an organization.
