This security workshop provides insight into security practices to improve the security posture of an organization. The workshop examines the concept of Red team â Blue team security professionals, where one group of security pros--the red team--attacks some part or parts of a company's security infrastructure, and an opposing group--the blue team--defends against the attack. Both teams work to strengthen a company's defenses. Since the goal of the two teams is to help the business attain a higher level of security, the security industry is calling this function, the Purple team.
