In the dynamic threat landscape of today, having a hacker’s point of view is a key asset for proactiveness. This is why attack simulations and purple teaming are on the rise, as most SOC’s aim to become proactive, instead of reactively validating their defenses during an incident.

Attack simulation is a methodology about identifying defense gaps and purple teaming is a testing exercise whereby red and blue teams work closely together to maximize cyber capabilities through continuous feedback and knowledge transfer. These two practices are not only relevant for optimizing the security posture but also essential for building proactive SOCs.

In this panel under the moderation of Pete, Tanya and Volkan discussed:

  • Why attack simulations and purple teaming is on the rise

  • Purple teaming formation and running purple teaming

  • How to plan, execute and report purple teaming
