E-Book: Aligning Cyber Skills to the MITRE ATT&CK Framework

by Immersive LabsFeb 26, 2021

In order to keep pace with hackers, you need to learn like hackers. That's why when it comes to guidance on building detection and response programs, MITRE ATT&CK® — which has a strong adversarial focus — trumps traditional frameworks such as the Diamond Model (which lacks technical depth), and Lockheed Martin's Cyber Kill Chain (which offers little from the attacker's perspective).

So, how can you maximize MITRE ATT&CK framework to bolster your cyber skills strategy? Gain insights in this eBook, which covers a number of different topics, including:

• What is MITRE ATT&CK and how does it work?
• Tips for identifying your skills weaknesses and security posture
• The beauty of an effective framework
• And more

Research Report: Osterman Research: Cyber Crisis Response - Fit For Today's Threat Landscape?

by Immersive LabsFeb 26, 2021

Cyber crisis response and preparedness is on everyone's lips, yet organizations' efforts are failing to adapt to modern threats. While table top exercises have long been considered an essential tool in preparing organizations to face cyber crises, they're now rapidly falling into obsolescence.

So what's the alternative? How many organizations still rely on PowerPoint-driven table top exercises to bolster their incident response plans? Is this legacy method of defining cyber crisis response widening the gap between attackers and defenders?

In collaboration with Osterman Research, Immersive Labs tapped into the collective consciousness of over 400 CISOs and senior security leaders. We sought to discover how influential security professionals prepare for the worst — and just how far behind legacy training techniques have fallen.

Explore the definitive report into cyber crisis preparedness to discover:

• The pros and cons of tabletop exercises
• Most common cyber crisis preparedness exercise scenarios
• Team gaps in tabletop exercises
• And more

Whitepaper: SUNBURST: Underlining the Importance of 'Right of Boom' Risk Mitigation

by Immersive LabsFeb 26, 2021

When SUNBURST hit the headlines, the infosec world stopped to stare. With a previously unheard-of depth of penetration in the technology supply chain and a pool of victims that includes some of the world's most prominent organizations, it has since been recognized as one of the most impactful attacks to date. And the most worrying part? There was little to nothing that could have been done to prevent it.

So what can be done to prepare incident response teams for such an attack? How can organizations be sure that their 'right of boom' response is as strong as possible?

In this paper, we take a deep dive into how organizations can put the psychological theory behind improving human response into practice to build an effective, agile team that knows what to do when the sun bursts. Topics covered include:

• Why SUNBURST makes 'right of boom' mitigation important
• Understanding the psychological theory behind improving human response
• 3 tips for building more cognitively agile cybersecurity teams
• And more
