You may have heard the term, Blue Team, sometimes also used in a discussion on security assessments. Also used is Pen Testing* & Red Team. The concept of the blue team & red team has their humble beginnings in the military. The idea behind this is that one group attacks another team & the second team tries to defend themselves.
So a blue team is a group of individuals who work tirelessly to ensure security, identify security flaws, verify the effectiveness of each security measure, and make certain all security measures will continue to be effective after implementation. Essentially they work for the company from the inside.
