Red Teaming

Our Red Team will conduct reconnaissance activities, including physical surveillance, intelligence gathering, and cyber scanning to identify potential gaps in security controls and craft targeted and concerted attack scenarios with drones which they will then execute against the target facility, perimeter, or Counter-Drone system.

Red Team attack simulations are the most realistic way to test the resilience of not only your Counter-Drone technology, but also your people, processes, and perimeters.


DroneSec help organisations prepare against motivated attackers by performing simulations of the threats observed around the globe. Organisations need to be ready to combat the airborne threat but are often limited by what they can do without Counter-Drone systems. Even when Counter-Drone systems are accessible, the numerous regulations, high costs, and levels of effectiveness are ambiguous at best.

How it works:

Simulating a team of skilled and motivated attackers, the DroneSec Red Team will craft and relentlessly execute a series of real-life attack scenarios to breach your perimeter and bypass your Counter-Drone controls by any means possible (within the boundaries of the law and what is agreed upon by you). Thinking outside the box like a potential attacker, we will combine custom and commercial drones, payloads, hacking, physical intrusion, and other deceptive techniques to compromise your defences and gain access to your perimeter.

Red Teams may occur at any time to gauge your Counter-Drone system and vendor’s response times, which requires not having previous knowledge of the incident occurring. This is the most realistic scenario and ensures there is no time to prepare - reflecting that of a random drone attack. This is where Counter-Drone systems are put to the test and their real-world effectiveness gauged.

You can request specific inclusions if you require testing of a particular process or policy (e.g. physical access to the Counter-Drone system, wireless hacking from a malicious drone, or access to the Universal Traffic Management (UTM) system via a stolen drone system).

Core Benefits

DroneSec help identify traditional and unique cyber and information security vulnerabilities, security weaknesses, and misconfigurations in drone software, hardware, Universal Traffic Management (UTM), and Counter-Drone systems.

Assessment Flow

Our team have worked across the military, defence forces, intelligence, drone and cyber security industry for many years. They’ll make sure the following components are rigorously assessed to give you peace of mind with your drone-powered business applications:

STEP 1

Examine the structure of the system and determine the scope of vulnerability assessment

  • Software
  • Hardware
  • Network, Infrastructure, and Web applications
  • Information Imagery and Privacy
  • Software Development Lifecycle
  • Security Vulnerabilities and Attack Vectors
  • Communication Protocols
  • Staff Training and Onboarding
  • Operating Laws and Regulations
  • Operating Laws and Regulations

STEP 2

Perform vulnerability assessment both using tools and manually

  • Software
  • Hardware
  • Associated Devices
  • Information and Imagery Privacy
  • Communication Protocols
  • Fleet Onboarding Process
  • Staff Training and Onboarding
  • Operating Laws and Regulations
  • Firmware security risks and updates

STEP 3

Report on the Results of the Assessment
