Also, a group that conducts operational vulnerability evaluations and recommends mitigation techniques to customers who need an independent technical review of their cybersecurity posture.In simpler terms, the Blue Team is a group of individuals that analyzes information systems to identify security flaws and verify effectiveness of security measures.
