Purple Team Strategies

By: David Routin, Simon Thoores, Samuel Rossier

Overview of this book

With small to large companies focusing on hardening their security systems, the term "purple team" has gained a lot of traction over the last couple of years. Purple teams represent a group of individuals responsible for securing an organization’s environment using both red team and blue team testing and integration – if you’re ready to join or advance their ranks, then this book is for you. Purple Team Strategies will get you up and running with the exact strategies and techniques used by purple teamers to implement and then maintain a robust environment. You’ll start with planning and prioritizing adversary emulation, and explore concepts around building a purple team infrastructure as well as simulating and defending against the most trendy ATT&CK tactics. You’ll also dive into performing assessments and continuous testing with breach and attack simulations. Once you’ve covered the fundamentals, you'll also learn tips and tricks to improve the overall maturity of your purple teaming capabilities along with measuring success with KPIs and reporting. With the help of real-world use cases and examples, by the end of this book, you'll be able to integrate the best of both sides: red team tactics and blue team security measures.

Summary

In this chapter, we introduced important concepts to help us set up an infrastructure to perform red teaming operations and, therefore, help us improve the overall security level of our organizations. As we learned in Chapter 2, Purple Teaming – a Generic Approach and a New Model, purple teaming will be executed over and over again as deploying and maintaining an effective offensive infrastructure is a totally different job and requires specific resources and knowledge. However, we don't have time and resources to reinstall an entire red team infrastructure over as deploying and maintaining an effective offensive infrastructure is a totally different job and requires specific resources and knowledge.

This is why we also discussed automation, and later in the book, we will examine other helpful solutions to simulate TTPs in an automation fashion.

This chapter was structured in a way to introduce you to more and more advanced considerations for your red team...
