It is pretty standard to to view an organization's cyber security defenders as its blue team, with red teamers performing pen tests or otherwise simulated attacks.  Recently, purple teaming has been integrated, which is a more collaborative effort between the two.  But many factors go into determining the outcome of the engagement, and many end with mixed results.  Many questions are not properly addressed, such as, who should be "in the know" about the red team exercise?  Should the attackers start inside or outside the network?  How should it be scoped?  How do we ensure that the results accurately reflect the security of the organization and the capabilities of the blue team?  Are we even ready for a pen test?

In this talk, we will evaluate multiple scenarios and models that will help organizations and defenders determine the best red, blue, purple, green, or yellow architecture to ensure continuous 360 insight into security gaps.  We will cover how to evaluate if a model is working, where tweaks can be made, and starting small, but getting big results.
