We've all heard of "Red Teams" and "Blue Teams" when it comes to cybersecurity. But what about the "Purple Team", the "Yellow Team" or the "Blue Team". What are those?
In February of 2020, Louis Cremen introduced the InfoSec Colour Wheel to the security community. The wheel expands upon April Wright's work on bringing builders into the security team. The value of the wheel is to show the various types of security teams, seven in all, and the role each plays in security.
Jasmine Henry brought the wheel to my attention last month. As she and I talked, we realized the InfoSec Wheel can be used as a thought exercise to show beginning cybersecurity professionals the various roles they can play within the community. This led to the discussion of careers in cybersecurity and what the near future looks like.
In this broadcast, we'll evaluate the wheel, talk through each of the seven personas and give our thoughts on the value of each role, how it works with the other roles, and the basics of what each provides. Let's figure out what your primary color is.
