Relativity is giving 30% discounts on their Processing, Infrastructure, and Project Management certifications between now and the new year.

Top 3 Takeaways from Relativity Fest 2017
  • Certification is more important than ever and an RCA undeniably increases your value, as an individual or as a vendor (if you have many on staff). Soon, saturation of RCAs in the market will shift the power to those who hold Expert (RCA plus two other Relativity certifications) and/or Master (RCA plus five other Relativity certifications) certification status.
  • Relativity will be retiring their legacy UI. There was a palpable gasp in the crowd of over 2000 at the keynote when this information was dropped.
  • Attendance at Fest was huge. Fest now competes on size with Legalweek and ILTA, two of the traditionally largest annual in-industry conferences.

The purpose of a Red Team is to find ways to improve the Blue Team, so Purple Teams should not be needed in organizations where the Red Team / Blue Team interaction is functioning properly.

Top 3 Differences Between Red, Blue, And Purple Teams
  • Red Teams are external entities brought in to test the effectiveness of a security program. This is accomplished by emulating the behaviors and techniques of likely attackers in the most realistic way possible. The practice is similar, but not identical to, penetration testing and involves the pursuit of one or more objectives.
  • Blue Teams refer to the internal security team that defends against both real attackers and Red Teams. Blue Teams should be distinguished from standard security teams in most organizations, as most security operations teams do not have a mentality of constant vigilance against attack, which is the mission and perspective of a true Blue Team.
  • Purple Teams are ideally superfluous groups that exist to ensure and maximize the effectiveness of the Red and Blue teams. They do this by integrating the defensive tactics and controls from the Blue Team with the threats and vulnerabilities found by the Red Team into a single narrative that ensures the efforts of each are utilized to their maximum.

Top 3 Hints For Successful LinkedIn Networking
  • Keep it complimentary. Using LinkedIn to be combative with others only paints you in a negative light with everyone you or your connections are connected to.
  • Keep it fresh. Viewers of your profile can see the last three things you liked, posted, or commented on. Keep a fresh rotation of content and commentary to keep people coming back.
  • Keep it professional. Mixing your political or religious beliefs with your online business networking can be unappealing to some people and cause them not to explore you further professionally.

People with LinkedIn accounts look to see who is viewing their profile (and you should, too). Sometimes simply looking at someone’s LinkedIn profile can be the catalyst for that person to decide to reach out to you directly, without you having to ask. Again, people with LinkedIn accounts look to see who is viewing their profile, and it is important to see and be seen in social media, the same way you would steal glances at a networking event or business cocktail party.
