Purple teaming is in its infancy as an operational concept. This paper seeks to expand the generally understood definition of purple teaming to a new purple teaming paradigm of collaborative, continuous assessment that helps cybersecurity teams achieve their ultimate — and shared — goal: detection and response to improve organizations’ cybersecurity.
Effective Purple Teaming addresses:
- Terminology, definitions, and assumptions
- Problems with the red team vs. blue team status quo
- An expanded concept of purple teaming
- Solutions for adopting a purple teaming paradigm
