Cybersecurity programs have shifted from building impenetrable fortresses to protect networks to a proactive, threat-informed strategy. This approach is not only designed to defend against attacks but also to detect and mitigate them before any harm occurs. MITRE ATT&CK is a framework central to this strategy, helping teams classify advanced attacks and assess their risk by identifying tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) used.
In our guide Getting Started with the MITRE ATT&CK® Framework and SafeBreach, we take a look at how MITRE ATT&CK enhances security programs and how enterprises can leverage the framework through the powerful function of breach and attack simulation tools. This guide covers:
- How threat informed defense supports a proactive cybersecurity program through threat intelligence, detection and analytics, adversary emulation and red/purple teaming, and finally assessment and engineering
- An overview of some of the challenges of operationalizing MITRE ATT&CK, including time investment, prioritization, and level of expertise
- How combining BAS solutions and the MITRE ATT&CK framework can help security teams quickly ingest and operationalize threat intelligence to stay one step ahead of adversaries
