Presenting: Applied Purple Teaming
Applied Purple Teaming
You’ve heard this story before. Bad actor walks into a network and pillages the place in swift action. CIO asks: “Where did we go wrong?” SysAdmin replies “our password, remote access, workstation restriction, and lack of application safelisting policies. Oh, and our SIEM didn’t notify us. We just weren’t ready for that attack.”
In a significant change from the original course, students will be introduced to Microsoft Azure and Sentinel. Each student will be responsible for deploying a cloud lab that includes an Active Directory domain, a C2 server, and integration with AZ Sentinel’s detection platform. All of this will be taught through a proven framework for purple team operations that results in better business outcomes.

Meet the Instructors
Jordan was around for the inception of Napster and the explosion of P2P networks. This drove his fascination with network systems and led him toward a career in IT. Jordan’s first gig in the industry included supporting Latin American networking customers for Hewlett Packard’s network support division. After five years of support, Jordan became a wireless escalations team lead and multi-vendor certified problem solver. With kids in tow, Jordan headed back toward the Dakotas where he learned Citrix, VMware, VDI, supported Cisco gear, implemented profile management solutions, deployed remote networks at scale, and ensured performance across infrastructure. Before becoming a penetration tester, Jordan supported multiple (50+) domains as part of an MSSP’s rock star team. For the last five years, Jordan has been a penetration tester with the Black Hills InfoSec team.
