Code of Conduct

Purple Squad Security Code of Conduct

Our Pledge

In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as
contributors and members of the Purple Squad Security community will continue to make
participation in our channels and other parts of our community a harassment-free experience
for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, sex characteristics,
gender identity and expression, level of experience, education, socio-economic status,
nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.

Our Standards

Contribute to create a positive environment by:

  • Using welcoming and inclusive language
  • Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
  • Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
  • Focusing on what is best for the community
  • Showing empathy towards other community members
  • Accept questions or concerns about language gracefully
    • Remember that the offensiveness of a comment is less about your intent, and more about the perspective of the audience

Avoid discriminatory or abusive behaviors such as:

  • The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances
  • Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
    Public or private harassment
  • Publishing others’ private information, such as a physical or electronic address,
    without explicit permission
  • Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting

Our Responsibilities

Moderators and Administrators are responsible for clarifying the standards of
acceptable behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action
in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.

Slack moderators and administrators have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.


This Code of Conduct applies both within the Slack public and private channels, direct messages, and in public spaces when an individual is representing the podcast or its community. Examples of representing the podcast or community include using an official project e-mail address, posting via an official social media account, or acting as an appointed representative at an online or offline event.  Representation of the podcast and its community may be further defined and clarified by the host.


Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting the podcast host at [email protected] All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. The Purple Squad Security team is obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident.  Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted separately.

Administrators and moderators who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct in good faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by the podcast’s host.
