TIBER1 (Threat Intelligence-Based Ethical Red Teaming) is a framework to assess the cybersecurity resilience of financial institutions. TIBER tests are designed to simulate real-world cyber threats and attacks, and are intended to help financial institutions identify and address weaknesses in their cybersecurity posture.

A quick how to

Here are some general guidelines for how TIBER tests can be best executed:

  1. Identify the scope of the test: TIBER tests should be focused on a specific aspect of an organization’s cybersecurity posture, such as its network, applications, or processes. It is important to clearly define the scope of the test so that the testing team knows what to focus on.
  2. Establish clear objectives: TIBER tests should have clear objectives that outline what the testing team is trying to achieve. These objectives should be aligned with the organization’s overall cybersecurity strategy and should be measurable.
  3. Develop a testing plan: A testing plan should be developed that outlines the steps that will be taken during the TIBER test. This plan should include details such as the tools and techniques that will be used, the individuals who will be involved in the test, and any rules or constraints that will apply.
  4. Coordinate with the organization: It is important to coordinate with the organization being tested in order to ensure that the TIBER test is conducted in a way that minimizes disruption to normal business operations. This may involve scheduling the test at a time that is convenient for the organization and communicating with key stakeholders about the purpose and scope of the test.
  5. Execute the test: Once the testing plan has been developed and the organization has been notified, the TIBER test can be executed. The testing team should follow the steps outlined in the testing plan and document any findings or observations.
  6. Analyze and report results: After the TIBER test has been completed, the testing team should analyze the results and produce a report that summarizes their findings. This report should include recommendations for how the organization can improve its cybersecurity posture.
