Be one step ahead with our attack path effectiveness review

TrustedSec utilizes an intelligence-driven, threat-focused approach to study intrusions from an adversary’s perspective.

TrustedSec evaluates the defensive controls, processes, tool-specific talent, and appropriate resources in alignment with a common enterprise adversary model—the MITRE Adversarial Tactics, Techniques, and Common Knowledge (ATT&CK™) framework.

The ATT&CK framework is a model for describing the actions an adversary may take while operating within an enterprise network, in addition to being an active repository of known threat actors and associated targets and techniques. Reviewing tools, talent levels, and resource constraints, in reference to known attack techniques, provides a greater awareness of what actions may be seen during a network intrusion and/or breach of business-critical data. The result is resiliency, which is the defender’s primary goal when faced with persistent and continually evolving adversaries.

TrustedSec’s unique approach assists in establishing how well an organization’s current arsenal of security capabilities should be able to detect known attack techniques, reducing the likelihood of an adversarial breach.

 

Benefits of an Attack Path Effectiveness Review:

  • Determine tool coverage and gaps in defense strategies
  • Provide alternatives showing overlap in defensive strategies whereby tools can be reduced or eliminated, saving money and effort as technology evolves
  • Align monitoring and detection capabilities so the organization is focused on the appropriate areas of the network
  • Assess whether there are gaps in tool talent and/or resource constraints that may result in the security team being less effective
  • Increase resiliency as adversaries continually adapt their operations over time
  • Connect countermeasures, weaknesses, and adversaries for greater insight into gaps and areas of focus
  • Prioritize future tool, training, and resource investments
