A recent survey of industry professionals revealed that 88 percent of purple teaming users — compared to only 52 percent of red/blue team users — say their exercises are “very effective” in defending their organization against ransomware and advanced attacks.
Cybersecurity teams of every size and maturity need to start reaping the benefits of being purple. Adopting a continuous assessment mindset that prioritizes short, iterative cycles of adversary emulation activities can improve the security posture of any organization. But where to start can be daunting!

Runbooks is a purple team module that allows you to get the best of both worlds (red and blue teams) in a pentesting engagement.
Planning, executing, and reporting a purple team engagement in Runbooks couldn’t be simpler.
Go to the Runbooks tab under Runbooks and click “Create.” From here, you can select your TTPs.
