Welcome to an enlightening series on MITRE ATT&CK implementations tailored for Incident Response Teams. Each post in this series builds upon the last, offering insights for which the depth of the application vary based on experience, maturity, and the environment's capabilities.
In this initial blog post, we delve exploring MITRE ATT&CK into post-incident reporting. MITRE ATT&CK, a repository of adversary Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs), serves as a common vocabulary for reporting. We'll explore the hierarchical structure of Tactics and (Sub-)Techniques, and demonstrate how we supplement the incident report with standardize language describing the observed activities. This supports the victim in understanding the chain of events and be presented with a set of actionable recommendations.
Future posts will cover integrating mitigations and detections into reports, making this method applicable beyond post-incident reporting. Whether dealing with news, advisories, or threat intelligence, this approach offers a standardized transformation, promoting coherent communication and collaboration across various security contexts.
