404: Ep.24 – What is red, blue and purple testing all about?


Pen testing can be fun, especially when it comes to red teaming.

The red team instigates the trouble with penetration testing. Red teaming is quite aggressive – a nuclear version of a pen test, if you will. The red team goes the whole hog and all vulnerabilities are exposed. Blue teaming is more defensive and it is all about evaluating the detection/prevention tools you have put in place to protect yourself against an attack. Purple teaming is a joint red and blue test.

Brad Thomas probes Dr David Day to give us the scoop on red, blue and purple teaming in this podcast. Listen in.
