Quantico and McLean, VA – March 2022. CYBER RANGES participates in the ATT&CKcon 3.0 conference as a sponsor to offer delegates a taster of the innovative MITRE ATT&CK Defender™ (MAD) Training and Certification Programme powered by CYBER RANGES.
The objective of MAD is to close the cybersecurity skills gap with ATT&CK®. Certified Defenders use ATT&CK® for threat-informed defense and organizations can now unearth MAD practitioners with proven mastery in the application of ATT&CK® across disciplines.
The joint initiative between CYBER RANGES and MITRE Engenuity Defender™ brings together the pool of ATT&CK® subject matter experts, the MAD Training and Certification Programme, and access for MAD learners to the CYBER RANGES MITRE ATT&CK Scenarios Library that runs on the CYBER RANGES next-generation cyber range platform. CYBER RANGES fully supports MITRE (PRE-)ATT&CK across its entire cyber range architecture. Through its proprietary Injector Engine CYBER RANGES automatically emulates the latest-intel attacks, APTs and specific tactics and exploits from the MITRE ATT&CK Matrix™. MITRE Engenuity gains the access to the CYBER RANGES platform for the Development, Promotion and Sale of the MAD training programme, certifications and associated assessments and badges, and for MITRE ATT@CK Evaluation.
Chriss Knisley, General Manager for MAD at MITRE Engenuity stated: “MITRE ATT&CK Defender™ is built to change the game in threat-informed defense. We address this challenge through consistent innovation and ever-improving competence. We offer cyber defenders compelling video-based training and highly realistic simulation exercises on the effective use of ATT&CK, and certify their mastery through an innovative subscription-based certification programme. All being powered by CYBER RANGES.”
Dr. Al Graziano, CEO for CYBER RANGES, commented: “We are delighted to have CYBER RANGES selected by MITRE Engenuity as the cyber-range-of-choice for the MITRE ATT&CK Defender™ programme. Our research, innovation and community values very closely align with those of MITRE Engenuity’s MAD team. Our collaboration stems from our novel Top 10 Abilities approach, which focuses on observable, measurable abilities to validate cybersecurity talent, and the underpinning TOAR platform, which supports strong cyber defense development ecosystems based on threat intel, next-gen cyber ranging and incident response.”
