TIBER EU / DE: How to use the framework
for the security of your company

TIBER EU is the European framework for Threat Intelligence-based Ethical Red Teaming. It is designed for companies in the financial sector that have already achieved a high level of information security maturity, allowing them to assess and further enhance their cyber resilience.

The financial sector is increasingly digitized and highly interconnected. A successful cyber attack on one company could quickly trigger a chain reaction, jeopardizing essential infrastructures.

TIBER EU is available in Germany as TIBER DE for actors with advanced maturity in IT security and a significant impact on the financial sector to enhance cyber resilience.

Process of a TIBER EU Test with ProSec - A Comprehensive Overview

A TIBER EU test within the German framework, TIBER DE can be divided into 3 sections: Preparation, Execution, and Finalisation.

In the Preparation phase, your White Team plays a crucial role, but we are happy to support you even in this early stage. The TIBER DE Framework, for example, allows involving the external service provider to determine the scope in meetings. You can benefit from our extensive experience in scoping penetration tests and Red Teaming projects, ensuring you get the maximum value for your security from this project.

During the Execution phase, our teams take on the task of assessing your company-specific threat landscape and based on that, planning and executing the Red Teaming. While there should be no personnel overlap between the Threat Intelligence Team and Red Team according to the TIBER DE Framework, the uncomplicated communication channels when choosing ProSec are advantageous for you. This enables both teams to exchange information optimally throughout the execution phase, creating the maximum knowledge gain for you in both the report and the attack scenarios.

In the Finalisation phase, we offer you, in addition to a detailed and solution-oriented documentation, the Purple Teaming Workshop as the ideal opportunity for an efficient knowledge transfer from our Red Team to your Blue Team. This way, your IT team can understand how our Red Team proceeded and at which points they could have noticed and stopped it.

The following overview shows the individual phases of your TIBER project with all elements and involved groups. If you have any questions about the process, feel free to contact us anytime!
