Center for Threat-Informed Defense:
Benefactors Make a Positive Impact by Directly Funding Threat-Informed Defense Programs
The Benefactor Program enables the global community to advance critical, public interest cybersecurity programs such as MITRE ATT&CK®, Caldera™, MITRE Engage™, and the Center for Threat-Informed Defense through charitable giving. Our benefactors are globally recognized for supporting independent research in the public interest.
Benefactor contributions advance MITRE ATT&CK, CALDERA, MITRE Engage, and Center for Threat-Informed Defense R&D
ATT&CK is a freely available, community-driven knowledge base of adversary TTPs curated by MITRE. It is used globally to advance our shared understanding of adversary TTPs and empower defenders. ATT&CK shifts cyber defense to be behavior-based, supporting communication across teams, and enabling the community to get ahead of the adversary. Benefactors sustain and advance ATT&CK through their financial contributions, ensuring that the knowledge base evolves as cyber attackers evolve and our IT environment changes.
Caldera is the world’s leading open-source, scalable adversary emulation platform. With the ATT&CK knowledge base as its backbone, Caldera empowers cyber practitioners to save time, money, and energy through automated adversary emulation operations, security assessments, and red-teaming. Benefactor contributions will help sustain Caldera’s open-source operations and repositories and will further research and development to advance the state-of-the-art in adversary emulation.
Center for Threat-Informed Defense
The Center conducts public interest research to advance the shared understanding of adversary behaviors and systematically improve our collective ability to defend against those behaviors. The Center creates practical resources that are used by cybersecurity teams around the world, making cybersecurity more efficient and effective, while enabling innovation. Benefactors fund the Center’s public interest research.
