Sightings Ecosystem

Project Summary

Published : Feb 23, 2022

This project provides cybersecurity defenders and researchers with critical insight into real-world, in the wild adversary behaviors mapped to ATT&CK. The ecosystem aims to fundamentally advance the collective ability to see threat activity across organizational, platform, vendor and geographical boundaries. Voluntarily contributed raw “sightings”, or observations, of specific adversary TTPs are mapped to ATT&CK, anonymized, and aggregated to produce intelligence describing insights from that data.


Defenders lack visibility into which adversary behaviors they should focus their attention on first.


Build and operate a way for organizations to safely contribute sightings of specific ATT&CK TTPs powering analytics that give defenders a picture of what TTPs are used where and when.


The sightings ecosystem injects real-world data and insights from that data into the decision-making process of defenders, allowing them to focus their resources on the highest priority problems.

Become a data Contributor

Contribute to create a global view of threat activity mapped to ATT&CK. To create this view, we need data contributors, like your organization, willing to contribute observations of adversary activity mapped to ATT&CK. Your data will be anonymized, aggregated, and analyzed to create critical visibility into adversary activity, and advance threat-informed defense globally.

Your organization will gain access the full dataset, validate and improve its mappings to ATT&CK, and receive recognition for giving back to the community.
