Our mission is to empower cybersecurity professionals with purple teaming skills

Purple Academy is committed to building and continuously improving a learning platform for the cybersecurity community to advance their knowledge and skills.

Purple Academy is an endeavor of Picus.

Purple Academy is a give-back project of Picus Security to provide open-access (free) cybersecurity courses to the community.
In the last few months, we have been tirelessly working to build a learning platform for cybersecurity professionals and enthusiasts to improve their knowledge and practical skills. We believe that Purple Academy will help the cybersecurity community in developing offensive and defensive skills for defending organizations better.

We designed Purple Academy to include different learning paths. Each learning path includes multiple micro-courses needed to develop a particular skill. Purple Academy is currently offering its first learning path, MITRE ATT&CK. Going forward, Purple Academy will provide new learning paths around Red, Blue, and Purple Teaming topics.

Micro-courses in learning paths are designed for busy professionals. They are short (around 1 hour), focused on a particular topic, accessible 24/7, and offered in a convenient, self-paced format. Students who complete a course or a learning path receive verifiable badges and certificates.

We look forward to continuing our journey together.
 Let's discover Red, Blue, and Purple Teaming!
