Chapter 3.5

Tier 3—Tiger Team Member—Tiger Team Lead (Red Team)


Tiger Teams, also known as Red Teams, are well staffed and well funded groups activated during particularly nasty incidents and will often be sent into the line of fire. On the positive side, you will be working with the best people in the world as you dig into network and forensics dumps, set traps, isolate attackers, and work to figure not only what happened and prevent it from happening again, but also (in some cases) how to retaliate. But pulling an all-nighter is not just possible, but common. You may find yourself putting a full week’s worth of work in a mere two days, and then have to keep working.
