Get the most out of your Red and Blue Teams

Red Teams emulate real-world attacks that help an organization understand where vulnerabilities exist, while Blue Teams are responsible for identifying and mitigating vulnerabilities, as well as improving detection and prevention. Effective collaboration between these two teams, who have traditionally worked in separate silos, is essential for any security program looking to strengthen its security posture. To stay ahead of today’s attacks and maximize the value of Red and Blue Teams, high-impact organizations utilize purple team tactics and adversary emulation.

Hear from the experts— learn to leverage Purple Team tactics

The Purple Team Summit will bring together leading security practitioners to explore practical uses of threat emulation tactics, detection capabilities, and security controls. Experts will draw upon their own experiences and share current purple team concepts that you can implement within your own security program.

Explore a diverse range of topics, including:

  • Building a purple team
  • Building a feedback loop between red and blue teams, as well as public cyber threat intelligence feeds
  • Building an adversary detection pipeline
  • Simulated exercises and lessons from actual incidents
  • Vulnerability assessments and attack emulation
  • Collaboration approaches that maximize value of red and blue teams
