Introducing the Top 5 Purple Team Findings of 2022 Report!

Throughout 2022, the Lares® Adversarial Collaboration Unit (ACU) has been tracking several emerging trends when assisting clients with Purple Team engagements. The following white paper highlights the Top 5 Purple Team Findings we uncovered in 2022. Though not every engagement is identical, we have analyzed the similarities between hundreds of engagements throughout 2022, and the following list represents the most frequently observed penetration test findings we encountered. It should be noted that the Top 5 discussed within this paper does not pretend to emphasize the findings as being the most severe, but rather, the most frequently encountered during engagements for the period. We hope you enjoy the report, and please reach out via email,, or phone at (720) 600-0329 should you have any additional questions, comments, or concerns.


Please use the following form to download the Top 5 Purple Team Findings Report. Your copy of the report will be mailed to you.


Join Lares' Adversarial Collaboration Engineer, Dave Storie, on Wednesday, February 22nd at 1 pm EST as he provides additional details about the report findings and how to prevent or mitigate them ahead of your next purple team engagement.
