The CISO's Guide to MITRE ATT&CK® in the Energy Sector
Enabling threat-informed defense for a sector at high risk of cyberattack.
Operating in a critical infrastructure sector, energy companies are increasingly targeted by cyber criminals and nation state actors either looking to secure a quick ransom or disable vital public services. As a result, it’s more important than ever that CISOs and their teams can rely on the security controls they have in place. The credibility of their businesses and the resilience of their assets and networks depends on a robust security posture.
However, traditional approaches to security control validation and penetration testing are unsatisfactory. Red- and blue-team exercises are expensive and disruptive and often fail to test against real-world threats, let alone against a prioritized list of the biggest risks facing the energy industry. But now, by leveraging the MITRE ATT&CK® framework, CISOs can enable an always-on approach to security validation that’s focused on the most important threats and designed to ensure security controls are continually optimized.
This guide will explain:
- Why a proactive threat-informed defense is particularly important for your organization at this point in time
- The benefits of automating security control validation—and a bit about how it works
- How multi-stage threat emulation is enabling companies to stay ahead of threats
