Title: An Introduction to Offensive Cybersecurity and Red Team Certification

An Introduction to Offensive Cybersecurity and
Red Team Certification
Cybersecurity is a practice of guarding data,
services, networks from threats, attackers, and
hackers in the form of digital attacks. These
digital attacks are called cyberattacks which are
generally aimed to access, modify or destroy
sensitive data. Cyber attackers not only try to
get money from the users but they also interrupt
the usual business process.
In simple terms, Cybersecurity guards the data
and integrity of computing assets that are
connected and belong to a particular
organizations network. The whole purpose of
cybersecurity is to protect these assets against
threats throughout the complete cyber attack
lifecycle. Let us see a few advantages of
maintaining cybersecurity 1. You can protect
your information and networks from attacks.2.
You can enhance the company credentials with the
proper security controls.3. With cybersecurity,
companies can enhance their business continuity
management and information security.4. With
proper cybersecurity, all the shareholders will
believe in your company.
What is offensive cybersecurity? Offensive
Cybersecurity, also known as hacking back, refers
to the proactive attack on hackers to disrupt
their operations and defend our information
against future attacks. The offensive
cybersecurity team, referred to as RED TEAM, can
seize the cyberattacks even before penetrating
cyber defenses or damaging the target
systems. As mentioned, Offensive Cyber Security,
which is also referred to as the Red Team,
educates the clients. The Red Team identifies the
security threats. They also notify you about
Intelligent business decisions and allow you to
eliminate your attack surface socially,
physically, and digitally. The Red Teams are
independent of the companies and are only hired
when organizations are willing to check their
defenses. The team consists of ethical hackers
who will carefully check the vulnerabilities in
the system and safely exploit them.
  • Typical Red Team Duties include
  • Red teams must be able to avoid the blue teams
    attention. Red teams must be able to identify the
    system vulnerabilities.
  • Compromising the target systems security by
    retrieving the data and breaching its physical
    parameters or infiltrating the system.
  • Employing vulnerabilities and bugs into the
    targets infrastructure. This process highlights
    that organizations technical security must be
  • Initiating antagonistic activities.
  • Before even going into the certification, let us
    see the prerequisites
  • One of the essential prerequisites of the
    Offensive cybersecurity exam is to complete the
    penetration testing with the kali Linux course
    that offensive security offers.
  • You must have a good understanding of the TCP/IP
  • You must have a good understanding of Linux.
  • You must have excellent scripting skills, whether
    it is Python or Perl.
  • You must know passive information gatherings like
    Google hacking or email harvesting.
  • You must know active information gatherings like
    DNS tactics, SNMP tactics, and port scanning.
  • And you must additionally have the knowledge of
  • Working with exploits
  • Web application attacks
  • Buffer overflows
  • Port redirection
  • Client-side attacks
  • Passwords attacks
  • Metasploit frameworks
  • Privilege escalation
  • Bypass antivirus software
  • Just by seeing prerequisites, you can get the
    idea of how hard it is to get the offensive
    cybersecurity certification but with hard work
    and good guidance like Infosec Train, you can
    clear the exam.
  • The best part about OSCP certification is that
    there is no expiry date for the OSCP certificate.
Who can take up the certification? Cybersecurity
professionals who are in the following areas or
willing to work in the future will be benefited
from this certification, and the work areas
are Cybersecurity consultants? are experts who
are within a consulting role associated with
offensive security and cybersecurity. System
auditors? are experts whose job is to perform
cybersecurity audits of systems. Penetration
testers? are experts whose job is to perform
offensive tests or ethical hacking against the
systems. Advanced security professionals? are
experts with security or cybersecurity job tasks
like network security engineers, cybersecurity
analysts, and incident responders.
Suggestion OSCP is a challenging penetration
testing certification for expert penetration
testers, so if you want to be a senior
penetration tester, you will have to attend this
certification exam at some point in your career.
So, you have to be prepared for it. Make sure to
attend this exam with high knowledge of Linux,
python, and kali. If you have failed this exam,
you can also go for CEH and PenTest
Certification Training that are pretty doable
with no extra effort.
Key points OSCP certification is an advanced
certification that will enhance your career
opportunities. The certification exam itself is
one of the most meticulous cyber security-based
certification exams possible but has a very solid
status amidst penetration testers. Aspiring
penetration testers with comparatively less
experience can go for CEH or PenTest
