Red Team Proposition:

Established in the University of Foreign Military and Cultural Studies (UFMCS) at Fort Leavenworth Kansas, the US Army’s Red Team University is the pre-eminent red team training and research institute and has brought innovative tools and techniques to all branches of the US military as well as many foreign militaries. Formal Red Team training and facilitation is the U.S. military’s secret weapon in the battle against an uncertain future. Bryce Hoffman was the first civilian to attend UFMCS and the Red Team training and has applied the tools and techniques to business in his book Red Teaming. Red Teaming can be employed by companies and other organizations that want to stress test their strategies, strengthen their plans, make better decisions and uncover the powerful truths that reside inside every group. The techniques will help businesses think differently about themselves and see how customers, competitors and other key constituencies will react to moves they make in the marketplace before they make them. They will also help businesses turn disruptive events to their own advantage. Red teaming is how businesses stay relevant, keep ahead of the competition and cope with an increasingly complex and uncertain world.

The presentation points and take-aways:

  •  We will have an overview of decision support red teaming and the difference between cyber red team actions and adversarial analysis and decision support actions.
  •  We will discuss approach, tools, techniques and outcomes, and conduct a hands-on learning activity to introduce the group to red team techniques.
