One team two team red team blue team

Cybersecurity is serious business, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little bit of fun. Please enjoy our poem in honor of National Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’s birthday:

One team
two team
red team
blue team.

This one has a little hack.

This one has a security stack. Say! what a lot of teams there are.

Yes. Some are red. And some are blue.
Some protect. And some come at you.

Some uncover operating systems,
and some try social engineering.
Some configure firewalls,
and some work on network securing.

We don’t see them come.
We don’t see them go.

Some responses are fast.

While other responses are slow.

From near to far
from here to there,
threats and vulnerabilities are everywhere.

These teams protect us,
the blues and reds.
They have one goal,
and it’s not to cause dread.
They strengthen our security.
They keep our defenses strong.
So if you have these teams on your side,
feel free to sing a happy song!

And now
farewell.
The SOC shift is changing.
The analysis shows
it’s time for some rearranging.

The teams are gone. They’ve had their fun.
And now the work has just begun.
Every day,
from here to there,
threats and vulnerabilities are everywhere.


Yes, it’s true threats and vulnerabilities are everywhere, and that’s a scary thought. But it doesn’t have to be. Learn how you can fortify your security operations center (SOC) and SOAR without limits.
