ABOUT THE CENTER

COLLABORATIVE R&D IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST

The Center for Threat-Informed Defense is our collaborative research and development organization for sophisticated security teams with a shared mission: to advance the state of the art and the state of the practice of threat-informed defense globally.

JUST RELEASED

Micro Emulation Plans

Micro Emulation Plans help organizations validate their defenses quickly and easily by building smaller scale adversary emulation plans that are fully automated using compatible tools and focused on common threats. Red teams and others can now quickly perform emulations for relevant threats that lead to positive changes in defensive posture.

CENTER MEMBERS ADVANCE THREAT-INFORMED DEFENSE

The Center offers multiple participation levels, each with distinct opportunities to expand threat-informed defenses and influence the future.

Advancement

Deepen the global community’s understanding of cyber adversaries and their tradecraft.

Invention

Invent and innovate alongside the world’s most sophisticated security teams and MITRE experts.

Leadership

Define a position at the forefront of adversary prevention, detection, and engagement.

Community

Fill information and resource gaps with open-source software, methodologies, and frameworks.

Global Impact

HOW WE CHANGE THE GAME ON THE ADVERSARY

The cyber adversary is global, agile, and evasive. Sharing knowledge is the only way to win. Through the Center for Threat-Informed Defense, we align diverse members to address security needs across sectors and countries, and share the results of R&D projects freely with the public.

EXPAND ON THE MITRE ATT&CK® KNOWLEDGE BASE

The Center builds on MITRE ATT&CK, a framework for describing adversary behavior used worldwide by security teams and vendors in enterprise security operations. Learn more about MITRE frameworks for the two major categories of threat-informed defense.

Adversary Prevention and Detection

Align with the MITRE ATT&CK knowledge base with a focus on adversary TTP prevention, detection, and remediation.

Adversary Engagement

Proactively engage the adversary within its environment, with approaches like deception, denial, honey pots, sandboxes, and other techniques.
