Mark Orlando: Building a Stronger Blue Team | 29

Blueprint • 2022-07-19

There are many technical factors that contribute to the success of a security operations team, but you need more than just tech skills for mounting a solid defense. In this episode of Blueprint we bring back previous guest Mark Orlando to talk about his BlackHat 2022 presentation with Dr. Daniel Shore (PhD in workplace psychology). We discuss team dynamics, how the mapping of multi-team systems can improve the flow of your incident response activities, and much more.
