Fight Like You Train

September 10, 2019


Since 2011, GridEx has been a hub for security lovers to evaluate and hone their red, blue, and purple teaming skills with challenging scenarios. In this episode, Brian Contos and Michael Allgeier, Director of Critical Infrastructure Security at The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), comment on the appeal and value these interactive training sessions can offer major power corporations.

We don't get a whole lot of opportunities to really just start off with a contested environment simulated. The red team had full domain credentials, admin credentials, on the domain in the virtual environment. We started off really, really hampered and that's the way we train. We train how we fight, and we fight how we train. To do anything less is not a good way to go.
