Pink Badge Training Program

Advanced security for IT Professionals and Developers. No experience required. We believe that the blending of skills between IT professionals, developers and security engineers is inevitable. If we are to secure the nation, we are going to need to introduce a new "security stack" - a set of skills that can be added to a technical professional's skillset. Prelude's Pink Badge program offers a four-week program designed to append advanced security skills onto a technical, non-security base.

What you will learn:

  • Week 1: An overview of security tools, team roles and why security matters
  • Week 2: Learn about how agents work, why they are important, and how adversaries operate
  • Week 3: Learn how to convert security results into action in your environment
  • Final Project: Run a real security test using Protect Mode

Skills you will gain:

  • Understanding the difference between antivirus and EDR tools
  • The roles of red vs blue vs purple teams in an organization
  • Learning how attackers break into organizations and the difference between initial access and post-compromise
  • How to conduct an internal security assessment
  • How to analyze a security assessment
  • How to implement security changes within your organization

You can self pace through the program (we have audio recordings for each lesson) or follow our recommended four-week cadence. We’ll kick off the guided cadence on the first Monday of each month with relevant messaging and tips in our #pinkbadge Discord link server channel.

Who the program is designed for

Pink Badge is a free training program available under the Community Edition for anyone interested in gaining an introduction to security skills. This program is designed for IT professionals or developers with little to no security experience.

Through this program you will learn security skills that you can bring back to your organization.
