Most penetration testers are considered “red team,” while most defenders are considered “blue team.” Thus, the irony of a conventional penetration test is that these two groups are typically pitted against each other. When the red teams and blue teams are working together, you have what’s called a “purple team.” While purple-teaming has not always been a thing, it can be a win for both groups.

Purple-teaming has now become somewhat of a buzzword. However, the effort behind it has great merit and value. In this podcast, LBMC Information Security’s Bill Dean helps purple-teaming, as well some of the benefits involved with the practice.
