Attack flow is a data model with supporting tooling and examples for describing sequences of adversary behaviors. Attack flows help defenders understand, share, and make threat-informed decisions based on the sequence of actions in a cyber-attack. Flows can be analyzed to identify common patterns in adversary behavior, overlayed on ATT&CK Navigator layers to understand defensive coverage, and create a foundation for intel-driven adversary emulation plans.
Defenders often track adversary behaviors atomically, focusing on one specific action at a time. This makes it harder to understand adversary attacks and to build effective defenses against those attacks.
Create a language, and associated tooling, to describe flows of ATT&CK techniques and combine those flows into patterns of behavior.
Help defenders and leaders understand how adversaries operate and compose atomic techniques into attacks to better understand defensive posture.
