Syndicate Bank to undertake Red Team Assessment
Syndicate Bank proposes to undertake a ‘Red Team Assessment’ test to assess the full security set-up of the bank for one year. It intends to have the task outsourced to a competent agency. ‘Red Team Assessment’ is a multi-blended system of testing attacks involving several facets of social engineering, physical penetration testing, and application penetration testing simultaneously. The aim is to reveal the real-world opportunities for malicious insiders or bad actors to be able to compromise all aspects of the organization in such a way that allows for unauthorized access to sensitive information leading to data breaches and full system/network compromise. The bank intends to cover networks, applications, routers, switches, appliances, staff, vendor personnel, departments and offices and data centers for the testing. The assignment is consultancy type and the service provider will have to provide personnel to conduct the test.
