Scenario & Red Teaming


Evaluate your companies defences against ransomware.

Stay one step ahead of ransomware with our ransomware simulation exercises, keeping your business, data, and reputation intact.

Plan and Objectives: Define the goals and objectives of the ransomware simulation engagement. Determine the scope, participants, and level of realism desired for the simulation. For safety purposes, a list of safe to-encrypt areas will need to be provided, which the client has adequately created a backup, or considers not to be business necessary.

Scenario Development: Outline a realistic attack scenario, considering factors such as the attack vectors, entry points, propagation method, target systems, and potential impact on business operations.

Engagement Execution: Conduct the ransomware attack by encrypting agreed directories or files and engaging the relevant stakeholders demanding compensation for decryption keys. The actions taken by the organisation in response to the incident will be analysed, including their ability to detect and contain the ransomware, make critical decisions, communicate effectively, and escalate the incident as necessary.

Salus Cyber will provide insights into the response to the simulated ransomware attack, including observed strengths, weaknesses, and recommendations for enhancing the organisation’s ransomware readiness.

First Line Dark


Our custom-written code allows us to simulate ransomware attacks realistically, providing companies with a better understanding of the potential impact of an actual attack. This enables companies to prepare better and implement effective security measures to mitigate the risk of a ransomware attack.


Our service helps identify weaknesses in a company's network, including vulnerable software, weak passwords, and other access control weaknesses. This enables companies to take necessary measures to strengthen their security measures and prevent future attacks.


Our ransomware emulation service allows companies to effectively simulate a ransomware attack initiated from malware, enabling them to test their IDS/IPS responses and the effectiveness of their security measures. This helps companies identify any weaknesses in their security systems and take necessary steps to strengthen their security measures and prevent future attacks.


Our ransomware emulation service can simulate a ransomware attack to test your incident response procedures and identify any gaps in your processes. This allows you to refine your response procedures to ensure that you are better prepared in the event of an actual attack.

    We deliver what we promised.

  4. Inform

    Every report we create is unique based on your business, we don’t use cookie cutter data for our summaries or our remediation plans. Our precise and concise findings brief will advise what steps your business needs to take next to reduce cyber risk.
