Red Team vs. Blue Team
Red and blue teaming simulate cyber attacks in order to measure the strength of an organization’s network security and cyber defenses.
The red team, or experienced ethical hackers, act as attackers and try to identify and exploit any potential security weaknesses in an organization’s technology, people, and processes.
The blue team, or incident response members, are responsible for defending the organization against cyber threats and attacks. Blue team members proactively identify security flaws, patch systems, and implement security controls. Together, red and blue teams work together to strengthen an organization’s security infrastructure.
