Q3 Featured Project: (ATT&CK™)

Adversarial Tactics, Techniques, and Common Knowledge (ATT&CK™) for Enterprise is an adversary model and framework for describing the actions an adversary may take to compromise and operate within an enterprise network. The model can be used to better characterize and describe post-compromise adversary behavior. It both expands the knowledge of network defenders and assists in prioritizing network defense by detailing the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) cyber threats use to gain access and execute their objectives while operating inside a network.
