MITRE ATT&CK1 is an open framework and knowledge base of adversary tactics and techniques based on real-world observations. ATT&CK provides a common taxonomy of the tactical objectives of adversaries and their methods. Having a taxonomy by itself has many valuable uses, such as providing a common vocabulary for exchanging information with others in the security community. But it also serves as a real technical framework for classifying your current detection efforts and identifying gaps where you are blind to certain types of attack behaviours. This paper will introduce you to ATT&CK and related tools and resources based on ATT&CK. Then it will discuss how to make practical use of ATT&CK with a focus on threat hunting and detection.View whitepaper
Organisations should think of security operations as a critical business process. Effective security operations are the first line of defence when it comes to preventing cyberattacks. To accomplish this, organisations need mature programs that leverage people, process and technology to rapidly detect and respond to sophisticated attacks.
Yet some organisations struggle with the overall effectiveness of their security operations. They also lack the basis for measuring the effectiveness and maturing capabilities. A mature security operation e ...
Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) facilitates a huge number of financial transactions every day via the secure messaging system it provides to its members. In addition to banks, the system is also used by other major financial players. SWIFT does not maintain accounts or handle funds, but its network moves huge sums every day. Member institutions, if compromised, can be used to send fake messages that other members act upon in good faith. Such activity has resulted in both attempted and successful transfers of ...
The news headlines are replete with stories of devastating data breaches,
compromising the personal and professional data of millions. Cyber attackers
spare no industry, infiltrating the assets of even the most sophisticated
technology adopters, in turn impacting their executives, employees, and
perhaps worst of all — customers and users.
The answer lies not in changing the motives of bad actors, but rather,
in the advanced techniques that help them evade traditional methods
of system protection. Traditional AV solutions, which adopt a ...

The report offers considerable insights into recent threat trends and related security issues.
Some key findings of this report merit further discussion. These conversations represent an opportunity to dig deeper into the implications of current security stra ...
By focusing on frequent code integration, automated testing, and keeping
the mainline code version in a state that is deployable to production at any
time, CI/CD aims to eliminate the risks and friction of traditional waterfall
software development. Add to that the practice of continuous deployment
and you can move to a situation where the latest and greatest software version
is not just always ready to be deployed—it’s deployed on a frequent basis. ...
