Ed TALKS: Steal the Attackers Playbook with Purple Teams

Presented by

Ed Adams, Security Innovation | Trupti Shiralkar, Illumio | Bill Titus, Skillsoft | Bryson Bort, SCYTHE

About this talk

Historical approaches to IT security have been driven by primary colors – red teams attack, blue teams defend. This leaves technical teams color blind as to how hackers exploit the very software they are tasked with building and protecting. Purple Teaming is a collaborative approach organizations use to improve their security posture during the attack exercise to capture immediate value and foster a real-world defensive approach. This strengthens a team’s understanding of abuse cases so they can employ effective controls from requirements through deployment. Attend this talk to learn how to embed an exploit mentality into technical teams, which results in a reduced attack surface, fewer security vulnerabilities, and accelerated feature release.
