This article is focused on Blue Teams, System Administrators and CTOs. If your organization holds a network infrastructure, then you’ll probably find it useful.
“Hackers are like water: Once they’ll find a crack into your system, they will flood in”
Defensive Security is not a “set it and forget it” thing. Systems and Networks need continuous monitoring and System Administrators and Response Teams need continuous training. Below are five reasons why you, as a System Administrator, CTO or Blue Team member, should consider using CTF365 as a Security Training Platform.
1) Defensive Security:
If attackers are determined enough, they will find a hole regardless how many security solution are deployed. That’s why, using CTF365 Platform you can develop and test new defensive processes to reduce damages and improve your reaction time and minimize any impact.
2) Incident Response:
As a System Administrator, you’ll be in the line of fire where you’ll get massive attacks from all directions. On CTF365 you’ll train your skills and improve risk mitigation plans through data collection processes, analytics to spot incidents before serious damage occurs.
3) Network Analysis:
Deploying defensive security software in place is not enough nowadays. As the Internet grows, there are ten of thousands of types of malware but only a finite number of ways to get into your system. Build your network, monitor and see where networks are vulnerable or where attackers would try to get in.
4) New Setups/Configurations:
With new technologies and networks growing, you’ll have to optimize and improve your network infrastructure. CTF365 gives you the opportunity to test new setups and improve security through better configurations.
5) Real Threats from Real Users within a safe environment:
There is one rule; that there are no rules. This makes CTF365 a perfect place for Blue Teams, System Administrators and CTOs to test their setups and train their skills. In the wild.

As Dave Marcus – Chief Architect, Advanced Research and Threat Intelligence McAfee – state on his 2012 TakeDownCon presentation:
“Defensive InfoSec has lost its hacker mentality and edge. Defensive security has lost its ability to be agile like the attacker. That is why it fails.
To truly be a hacker is to take nothing for granted. It is to take technology or ideas in new directions if only to challenge the assumptions the original answer was based on. Yet today the hacking mentality only seems to have taken r00t on the offensive infosec side. Has defensive infosec ever really stepped back and examined or challenged its original assumptions? Maybe it’s time for defensive hacking.”

You’ll have to look at the number and size of attacks to realize that is not going a way and Defensive Security Trainings is a must regardless your infrastructure size.
