Cybersecurity Fact Sheet

MITRE is advancing a global community of cyber defenders.

Achieving cyber resiliency is a collaborative effort

Technology and human reliance on it are advancing in tandem. More connectivity translates to more risk exposure. A cyber-attack affecting one organization or sector could rapidly expand to others—even beyond geographical boundaries. To protect against these layered and growing threats, MITRE draws from a wealth of deep technical expertise. We identify, develop, and adopt innovative concepts and tools, and apply threat-informed engineering to build and defend resilient environments.

From the microchips operating your mobile device to the complex networks securing traffic in space, our cyber capabilities touch all aspects of daily life, protecting critical infrastructure and national security interests. We connect government, industry, and communities of cyber defenders to secure critical systems across the nation—and around the world.
