    X-Force Red and X-Force IR teams have recently joined forces under IBM Security. X-Force Red is IBM Security's team of hackers. X-Force IR is IBM Security's team of responders, researchers, and investigators. This organization enhancement enables this team to deliver both offensive and defensive security services. Offensively, X-Force Red minimizes the likelihood of an attacker compromising an organization's environment by finding and fixing high risk vulnerabilities before attackers find them. Defensively, the X-Force IR team trains and tests responders for the worst-case scenario and provides emergency incident response services to reduce attacker dwell time and damage.  Check out this new blog, where X-Force's Global Managing Partner, Charles Henderson discusses how uniting the offensive and defensive teams will provide more value to you, our clients, while also maintaining autonomy between the two teams. And be sure to register for our second annual virtual Red Con conference on September 29th led by top hackers and responders presenting timely research-driven topics and demos including an overview of President Biden's new cybersecurity executive order; an inside look at the tools hackers use to unlock locked doors; new testing tools; when incident response goes sideways; and more. Register and check out the sessions here.
