Red Team, Blue team: Two Sides of the Same Coin

04 Jun 2019, 14:15 - 15:15

Information Security Exchange

Our industry has adopted myriad attack detection tactics, security frameworks, threat intelligence schemes, and incident response plans over the past few decades with, frankly, varying results. Results are mixed because these individual solutions don't provide a “big picture” narrative that helps an organisation improve its security.

Pen tests have been conducted for decades, now. Security analysts have been implementing intrusion detection and SIEMs, too. What is a truly effective relationship between the two that can improve an organisation's cybersecurity profile?

Join us for an in-depth, technical demonstration of critical skills and methodologies that organisations worldwide have put in place. Our hands-on, interactive presentation will focus on the symbiotic, heuristic relationship between "red team" pen tester and "blue team" security analyst.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. How security controls can be improved through red teaming.
  2. Key methods used in red and blue teams to identify of indicators of attack and indicators of compromise.
  3. Identify the importance of shifting from a compliance-based mentality to one based on detecting traces and signatures.
  4. Understanding of how to customise frameworks and analyse trends that are meaningful to your own network, rather than theoretical constructs.
  5. How cybersecurity professionals and their managers create metrics to demonstrate the real value of security controls and employees.
