Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Cristian Pascariu, and welcome to my course, Purple Teaming: The Big Picture. I am an information security professional. Purple teaming is an evolutionary step of cyber attack simulations. It's a collaborative approach focused on the knowledge transfer between the red and blue teams to uplift security capabilities. In this course, we are going to explore and identify some of the common challenges with red team exercises and the opportunities that purple teaming creates. Some of the major topics that we will cover include go beyond alerts to understand adversary tactics, increase collaboration between red and blue teams to maximize effectiveness, and also to get acquainted with some of the free resources for purple teaming and adversary emulation. By the end of this course, you'll know how to go beyond the point‑in‑time security assessment and shift to a continuous chain of activities focused on improving collaboration and the overall security posture of your organization. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into offensive tactics with courses on Red Team Tools. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn purple teaming with the Purple Teaming: The Big Picture, at Pluralsight.
