Join Jorge Orchilles and Phil Wainwright as they cover how to show value during Red and Purple Team exercises with a free platform, VECTR. VECTR is included in SANS Slingshot C2 Matrix Edition so you can follow along the presentation and live demos.

VECTR is a free platform for planning and tracking of your red and purple team exercises and alignment to blue team detection and prevention capabilities across different attack scenarios. VECTR provides the ability to create assessment groups, which consist of a collection of Campaigns and supporting Test Cases to simulate adversary threats. Campaigns can be broad and span activity across the kill chain or ATT&CK tactics, from initial access to privilege escalation and lateral movement and so on, or can be a narrow in scope to focus on specific defensive controls, tools, and infrastructure. VECTR is designed to promote full transparency between offense and defense, encourage training between team members, and improve detection, prevention & response capabilities across cloud and on-premise environments.

Common use cases for VECTR are measuring your defenses over time against the MITRE ATT&CK framework, creating custom red team scenarios and adversary emulation plans, and assisting with toolset evaluations. VECTR is meant to be used over time with targeted campaigns, iteration, and measurable enhancements to both red team skills and blue team detection capabilities. Ultimately the goal of VECTR is to help organizations level up and promote a platform that encourages community sharing of CTI that is useful for red teamers, blue teamers, threat intel teams, security engineering, any number of other 'cyber ' roles, and helps management show increasing maturity in their programs and justification of what's working, what's not, and where additional investment might be needed in tools and team members to bring it all together.
