RED, BLUE, PURPLE TEAMING
Simulated, Real-world Attacks that Focus on the Effectiveness of Your Cybersecurity Program
Stay Current with Adversaries
Utilizing the same tools, tactics and techniques that bad actors would likely employ, it’s vital to periodically evaluate how the company’s security personnel and program would perform when engaged in an attack. Applying the Red, Blue and Purple teaming penetration testing methods offers a dynamic approach to exercising the InfoSec team’s knowledge and training in the cybersecurity space.
Red Team vs. Blue Team
Typically, an organization outsources a red team to take on the role of the attacker, devising an offensive strategy to hack into the infrastructure, systems and applications. Their goal is to improve threat hunting, monitoring and incident response.
The blue team serves as the defenders in the Security Operations Center (SOC) looking to detect an intrusion and prevent damage or loss to the organization. It is responsible for preventing attacks before they start, by using the security tools they have in place, from their security information and event management (SIEM), to incident monitoring and overall threat intelligence platforms. When a threat is detected, they properly utilize their playbooks and respond to the incident promptly.
A more collaborative approach to simulated attacks, Purple Teaming challenges the disconnection of the Red Team vs Blue Team technique, adding a new layer and perspective to how adversaries can be exposed. Purple teaming unites both red and blue together to detect vulnerabilities and threats in order to develop a strategic and comprehensive approach to network monitoring.
Purple teaming allows a company to coordinate their tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) in a more efficient way.
