Mitre Unveils Cyber Insight Framework; Blake Strom Comments

MITRELogoMitre Corp. has introduced a new cybersecurity framework that seeks to offer insight into the behavior of cyber attackers once they penetrate a computer network.

The Adversarial Tactics, Techniques and Common Knowledge framework is designed to help organizations identify and classify cyber threats, Mitre said Tuesday.

“Practitioners know there is a lot of guidance available about the pre-exploit phase to prevent an attack, but there’s very little information about how to detect an adversary after they infiltrate the network,” said Blake Strom, a Mitre cybersecurity researcher and ATT&CK program lead.

“Our ultimate goal is to create a community to raise awareness about what actions might be seen during an intrusion,” he added.

Mitre funded the ATT&CK work through the firm’s independent research program that uses advanced and emerging technologies.

The company offers free license for the ATT&CK tool and calls on the cybersecurity research community to use the framework as a reference point for investigation.
