Mitre ATT&CK Framework


What Is the MITRE ATT&CK Framework?

The MITRE ATT&CK framework is a globally accessible knowledge base of adversary tactics and techniques. These techniques are based on real-world observations of adversary behaviors and created by analyzing real cyberattacks. MITRE ATT&CK is a community-driven framework. The power of the framework is that a global community can contribute to it.

Top 10 Critical MITRE ATT&CK Techniques

In 2022, Picus Labs analyzed 507,912 malware samples to determine tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) used by adversaries in these malicious files. Picus Labs categorized each observed TTP by utilizing the MITRE ATT&CK® framework. As a result of the present research, 5,388,946 TTPs observed in the last year were mapped to ATT&CK to identify the top 10 most common techniques used by attackers.
