The Power of Purple Teaming: Using Runbooks to Standardize and Collaborate – Dan DeCloss – PSW #771
In a recent survey on purple teaming, 89 percent of respondents who had used the method deemed purple teaming activities “very important” to their security operations. Purple teaming exercises conducted regularly have the power to improve collaboration across teams, ensure issues are identified and remediated more proactively, and provide a means to measure progress over time. With all these benefits, why isn’t everyone doing it? Purple teaming doesn’t have to be such a heavy lift. With the right mindset and tools, any team can get started regardless of resources. This talk will highlight practical tips for getting started with purple teaming exercises and show off PlexTrac Runbooks, a platform designed to plan, execute, report, and remediate collaborative purple teaming engagements so teams can maximize their efforts and improve their security posture.
