Adversary Emulation Exercise

The CrowdStrike® Adversary Emulation Exercise is designed to give your organization the experience of a sophisticated targeted attack by real-world threat actors without the damage or costs of experiencing an actual breach.

The Challenge

Adversaries are constantly evolving their attack tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs), and organizations must make sure they are ready for a targeted attack. The ability to withstand one attack doesn’t mean you have the tools to withstand another. Organizations face the following challenges:

Failure to Detect Sophisticated Attacks

Failure to Detect Sophisticated Attacks

Attackers can go undetected for long periods of time, so organizations need to continuously test their security team’s ability to detect and respond to today’s sophisticated, targeted attacks.

Ineffective Security Controls

Ineffective Security Controls

Organizations need to validate that their current security controls and processes are effective against today’s evolving adversary TTPs.

Security Gaps

Security Gaps

Adversaries can quickly exploit vulnerabilities and achieve lateral movement across your network, and you need to identify gaps in your current security posture to understand how an attacker may breach your network.

The Benefits of Adversary Emulation

Test Your Response to Targeted Attacks

An Adversary Emulation Exercise allows your organization to test your security team against the latest threats posing the greatest risk to your industry.

Test the Effectiveness of Security Controls

A focus on objective-based testing demonstrates the effectiveness of your security controls and incident response processes.

Evaluate Your Maturity Level

Measure your organization’s cybersecurity maturity level by evaluating it across the phases of the MITRE ATT&CK® framework.
