Purple Team consists of the Red team and Blue team working together to simulate malicious attacks and learning from each other along the way.
In a Red team exercise, a group of ethical hackers uses real-world cyber attacks to exploit an organization’s people, technology, and processes. The red team uses one or multiple techniques, including penetration testing, social engineering, or other custom software and tools. The blue team, unaware of any impending attack, works to defend the organization’s networks, relying on data analysis, threat detection, and risk assessments.
Red team vs. blue team scenarios have a long history with military origins. A more recent approach, called purple teaming, takes members from both teams to communicate and collaborate to improve your organization’s overall security posture.
Encourage employees to think outside the box and establish ongoing communication channels with a collaborative culture that promotes continuous improvements to your cybersecurity posture.
