The Top 10 MITRE ATT&CK Techniques Used by Adversaries


Organizations struggle to keep up with the rapidly evolving threat landscape and ensure that they can keep their customers, employees and partners safe.

Despite investing billions of dollars into security technologies - both to prevent breaches from happening as well as detecting malicious activities in their environments - security professionals remain reactive in their response to emerging threats. They scramble to keep policies up to date, filter through thousands of alerts, understand their highest risks and last but not least, justify their current activities and spendings.

This is why we at Picus believe that organizations need to break the status quo. By adopting a more threat-centric mindset, security teams can assess their environment against the latest threats and understand where their most relevant security gaps are. This approach helps to take more proactive decisions and therefore increase cyber resilience significantly.

Picus has long followed MITRE Engenuity, MITRE’s tech foundation for public good, and its Center for Threat-Informed Defense’s impressive work in helping organizations globally to adopt threat-informed defense. We share the belief that innovation and collaboration across the security community are essential to help keep organizations safe against the latest cyber threats.

This is why we are proud to support the Center as a Founding Gold Affiliate by sharing and contributing to its research.
