Many people look at Red Team and Blue Team as rivals. The truth is that both play for the same team. Football teams have offense and defense, both with the same goal (to win), but they achieve their goal using different methods. This presentation addresses the reality of working in cybersecurity and how both Red Teams and Blue Teams work together to prevent attackers. Key learnings include offensive and defensive methodology, communication, and documentation. Our goal is to show what it is really like to work in this field and help people understand ways to succeed.
