Cybereason, creators of the leading Cyber Defense Platform, today announced it is hosting a live webinar with The MITRE Corporation, Monday, September 16, 1:00 pm ET, to educate enterprises about how to operationalize MITRE ATT&CK threat intelligence to defend against cyberattacks. Israel Barak, Cybereason’s Chief Information Security Officer and Katie Nickels, ATT&CK Threat Intelligence Lead at The MITRE Corporation will lead the webinar.
Who: Cybereason and The MITRE Corporation
What: Earlier this year, Cybereason unveiled results from ‘Operation Soft Cell,’ its nearly year-long investigation into a massive, advanced espionage campaign targeting nearly a dozen global telecommunications providers. Cybereason’s investigation discovered commercial, privately owned critical infrastructure companies are tools being used in state-sponsored espionage and cyber war.
MITRE ATT&CK was an important component of Cybereason’s investigation, used to assist in detection, scope, attribution, and communication of the attack. The use of MITRE ATT&CK has allowed other organizations to more easily apply Cybereason’s intel to their security operations, to prevent from being affected by this threat.
When: Monday, September 16, 1:00 pm ET
Where: Live Webinar
