Blue Team

In cybersecurity, the Blue Team defends information systems against threats. Their counterpart, the Red Team, simulates cyber-attacks to identify vulnerabilities. The Blue Team’s roles include monitoring networks for malicious activity, responding to security breaches, and conducting digital forensics post-attack. They also manage software updates to address vulnerabilities and harden systems by minimizing potential attack points. Regular security awareness and training for staff is another of their responsibilities. Furthermore, they proactively search for unnoticed threats in a process called threat hunting. Often, Blue Teams and Red Teams collaborate in exercises to test an organization’s defenses. This collaboration helps refine and bolster the organization’s security posture.
