We're happy to introduce you to a strange new ampersand-infused acronym: MITRE ATT&CK.
This framework has gained a lot of popularity in the security industry over the past year and Google Trends tells us that this keyword is red hot! But what is MITRE ATT&CK™ all about, and why should cybersecurity pros pay attention?
For those who are not familiar, ATT&CK is the Adversarial Tactics Techniques and Common Knowledge framework available from MITRE. It is a curated knowledge base of tactics and hundreds of techniques that attackers can leverage when compromising enterprises.
There are a number of ways an organization can use it, so we have developed this special edition for you with the collaboration of VMware Carbon Black, global leader in cybersecurity.
In it, you'll find a careful selection of the most relevant news from trusted leaders in the security industry, along with a workbook developed by VMware Carbon Black and that provides a starting point for organizations looking to map to the ATT&CK Framework or simply better their security posture in 3 simple steps.
We hope this issue will be a useful resource for you and your team.
