Why your red team shouldnt be snowflakes

A presentation at ShowMeCon 2019 in in St. Louis, MO, USA by Isaiah Sarju

Red teaming requires the use of specialized tools. However, this should not exclude operators from using the same technology, adhering to the same procedures, and following the same policies as their colleagues throughout the organization. Some argue that this will prevent operators from executing on their duties. The contrary is true. With a few exceptions in place and thoughtful architecture considerations, treating red teamers as regular employees will improve their testing and reduce the risk that red teamers bring to organizations.
