Red Team or Blue Team? In the ongoing battle against increasingly sophisticated cyber adversaries, organisations around the globe are relying on elite teams of cyber security professionals to protect their critical information assets and systems. But in the mission to ensure your organisation is secure against cyber attacks, which skills are most valuable and effective - those of your Blue Team cyber defenders, or the offensive capabilities of your Red Team? Or is effective cyber security really only achieved through collaboration and understanding the roles of each?

In a reprise of the hugely successful Community Night presentation at Secure Canberra (March), two more of SANS' top instructors open up their team's cyber playbook, presenting and comparing both offensive and defensive approaches to cyber security. It's the same exciting theme and the same engaging format, but this time with two new protagonists! Jake Williams, SANS Certified Instructor and a member of SANS' Red Team elite forces will join forces with Eric Conrad, SANS Senior Instructor and passionate Blue Team champion to discuss the offensive techniques used commonly (and often effectively) by attackers against your organisation, and why understanding those techniques is critical to effective prevention, detection and response.
