Mitre Att&ck

The MITRE ATT&CK framework is a globally recognized knowledge base of adversary tactics and techniques based on real-world observations. It serves as a vital tool for understanding threat actor behaviors and improving an organization's cybersecurity posture. By categorizing and detailing the specific methods used by attackers across various stages of their operations, the framework provides security professionals with insights needed to identify, prepare for, and mitigate potential threats.
  • According to a 2020 survey, over 80% of cybersecurity professionals use the MITRE ATT&CK framework to understand threat actor behaviors and improve their security strategies. (Source: MITRE)
  • The framework has grown to include over 500 techniques, illustrating the complexity and diversity of modern cyber threats. (Source: MITRE ATT&CK)

Top 3 Reasons Why NDR is Well Suited for Detecting MITRE ATT&CK TTPs

To catch a thief, you must think like a thief.

1. ATT&CK takes the perspective of the adversary

The MITRE ATT&CK framework takes the perspective of the adversary, so defenders can more easily follow an adversary’s motivation for individual actions and understand how those actions and dependences relate to specific classes of defenses.

2. The network never lies

Attackers use Power Automate to exfiltrate sensitive data to other cloud services that look benign.

The network never lies, and attacks, regardless of how novel, will always have a network footprint if they propagate. This is especially apparent as an attack progresses. Logs can be erased, endpoint controls can be evaded, but the network footprint cannot be erased.

3. NDR provides coverage

Misconfigurations in cloud software, infrastructure, and platforms are easy entry for attacks.

Further, network detection and response (NDR) provides coverage for all devices that have an IP address – managed devices, unmanaged devices, IoT, IIoT, servers, and desktops.This allows defenders to get a complete view of their network across data center, cloud and office locations without having to instrument every individual device.
