Episode 17: Capture the Purple Team

On this episode of the podcast, I am joined by Trenton Ivey, Co-founder of CypherCon. He’s led and designed the capture-the-con events at CypherCon and really put a lot of emphasis on interactivity into the capture-the-con competition. We chat about the hacker communities in Milwaukee compared to St. Louis where he now lives. He talks about how companies can implement a more collaborative security strategy fusion of red team and blue team into a purple team in order to more strategically find the root causes to security issues. You can say hi to Trenton Ivey on Twitter @TrentonIvey.
