The Red Teams Podcast was created for our team to share our knowledge and stories with you. Each episode will be dedicated to a topic or tactic. You'll hear from heavy hitters in the field. Not people who only write books about red teaming, but who are out in the field living and doing it every day. We aren't going to hold your hand, but we are going to expand your knowledge and help you obtain the adversarial mindset.
