In this guest blog post, Bradley Schaufenbuel of Paychex writes about how security teams can leverage the MITRE ATT&CK framework to mount a “threat-informed” defense. This post originally appeared as an article in SC Magazine.
AttackIQ has released two new attack graphs that emulate different aspects of OilRig’s operations against multiple sectors around the globe. With these attack graphs, you can test and validate your defenses to improve cybersecurity readiness.
AttackIQ has released two new fully featured attack graphs emulating the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) used by likely nation-state adversaries that continue exploiting the Log4Shell vulnerability in VMware Horizon Systems.
AttackIQ has released a new attack graph for organizations to test and validate their cyberdefense effectiveness against the HAVEX strain of malware. This attack graph follows a pair of Department of Justice indictments of Russia-based threat actors and a new joint FBI-CISA Cybersecurity Advisory about HAVEX released last week. An enduring and dangerous threat, HAVEX targeted the energy and power sectors in 135 countries from 2012-2018, and the tactics and techniques within it continue to threaten organizations today.
Following an up-tick in the activity of Russia-based cyberthreat actors, this blog discusses the practical steps you can take to validate your network security controls against known Russian tactics, techniques, and procedures to improve your security readiness. It walks readers through Russia-specific emulations included in the AttackIQ Network Control Validation module.
AttackIQ and the Center for Threat-Informed Defense are furthering the art of adversary emulation with the Center's new Attack Flow project. Building on our deep research partnership with the Center, AttackIQ's Attack Graphs emulate the adversary with specificity and realism to test advanced cyberdefense technologies against multi-stage attacks. Read on for more.
To prepare for a potential cyberattack from Russia-based actors, you can begin by testing your security controls against known adversary tactics. The vast majority of cyberattacks use tactics and techniques that have been employed in the past. This blog walks you through key known tactics and techniques, and highlights scenarios in the AttackIQ Security Optimization Platform that you can use today to test your defenses and improve your cybersecurity readiness.
This past week, AttackIQ launched its inaugural Purple Hats Conference—where more than 3,000 cybersecurity practitioners, partners, and pros joined to collaborate, share ideas, and learn how to evolve from a reactive to proactive threat informed defense strategy.
