What is Purple Teaming?
The purple team comprises both Red and Blue teams, working together to maximize cyber security capabilities through continuous feedback and knowledge transfer. The experts integrate defensive tactics and controls from the blue team with threats and vulnerabilities that the red team discover in systems. The purple teaming methodology helps an enterprise enhance vulnerability detection and security testing by accurately simulating popular threat scenarios and enabling the development of advanced measures to detect and mitigate new threats. The purple team does not have to be a separate group of experts. Instead, security teams view it as a practice that allows the sharing of intelligence data and supports real-time communication and feedback between blue and red teams.
