MITRE’s Managed Services Evaluations: Making the Most Out of the ATT&CK Framework – Ashwin Radhakrishnan – CFH #12
In late 2022, the MITRE Engenuity foundation revealed the findings from its first-ever ATT&CK Evaluations for managed security service providers. The report measured various MSSPs' ability to recognize, analyze and report the TTPs of the OilRig Advanced Persistent Threat group. This session will dig into the findings to help MSSPs better understand where they can stand to improve when it comes to hunting, detecting and responding to threats posed by sophisticated cyber adversaries. Plus, MITRE will reveal how managed security providers can participate in the next round of assessments.
