Jack McBride is a senior red teamer at Resillion, a global cyber security services provider. In his role, Jack has managed and delivered a multitude of red and purple team engagements in seasoned Windows environments spanning multiple industry sectors, including finance, defence and government. Seeking a new challenge, he has recently made the jump into researching and breaking into macOS-based environments. In addition to being an Offensive Security MacOS Researcher (OSMR), Jack also holds the OSEP, OSWE and OSCP.
With an increasing number of companies, like start-ups and fintech firms, transitioning to macOS environments, the demand for macOS red team expertise is increasing. Setting up a comprehensive and effective macOS lab environment is a critical foundation for both offensive and defensive cybersecurity professionals. We all know how important this is, either to test payloads or create new one for the next gig.
However, the unique nature of macOS can pose challenges while simulating an environment, for those familiar with other platforms. This workshop aims to provide a guide for attendees to setup up a organisation like macOS playground (lab environment) along with AD integration to replicated organisational setup, for red teamer to get started.
