What are the habits of a highly successful red team? How much do TTPs or a team’s talent level contribute to their overall effectiveness? This talk will examine the actions that separate high-performing red teams from the competition. The speakers will share practical red team methods developed through their careers as offensive security consultants, along with insights from leaders in the infosec industry. They’ll connect observations from recent publications on the topic with the lessons learned from their previous careers on other high-performing, high-stress teams -- one as a Marine and the other as a professional baseball player.  This talk will highlight how effective teams are architected, the challenges of remote work, engagement planning and execution, practical tips for effective communication, and the importance of team cohesion when pursuing a mission. Attendees will walk away with action items they can take back to their organizations and start implementing immediately.
