Seeing Purple- Hybrid Security Teams for the Enterprise — Mark Kikta (Beltface)
Circle City Con 2014

Abstract: The militaries of the world conduct wargames in order to increase their readiness in the event of an actual incident. The job is to provide security for their respective nations. For those of us responsible for the security of organizations, why should our methods be any different? Protecting any sufficiently sized infrastructure is just like protecting a virtual country; there can be everything from minor skirmishes by untrained personnel (skiddies) to attacks by nation states (APTs) to attacks from within (insider threat). It is paramount that security teams plan, prepare, and execute mitigations for these events. By combining both red and blue team operations in your organization, you can develop comprehensive security exercises that will not only help you identify holes in your existing procedures, but also help you develop new ones all while keeping your team at the top of their game. This talk will explore blueprints for creating such a team, how to integrate it into your existing hierarchy, and how to make it fun!

Author Bio: Mark Kikta is a Security Consultant with VioPoint which is located in Auburn Hills, Michigan. Mark supports a variety of operational security programs that includes vulnerability management security monitoring and incident response. As a former Linux engineer with Secure-24, Mark tries to provide information he wishes he had known when he was starting to work with Linux in the realms of security.
