CSO Magazine selected MITRE Engage™ for its CSO50 Awards for 2022. The awards recognize the top 50 security projects and initiatives that demonstrate outstanding business value and thought leadership.
Launched earlier this year, MITRE Engage is a framework for communicating and planning cyber adversary engagement, deception, and denial activities. Chief information security officers (CISOs) can freely use Engage to create a strategy for protecting the company, defenders can use it to implement that strategy, and vendors can use it to align their products with their users’ goals.
Adversary engagement and deception operations can cut the cost of a data breach in half, waste an adversary’s time, and make attackers easier to detect. Informed by adversary behavior observed in the real world, Engage maps to the MITRE ATT&CK® framework.
Building upon more than 10 years of operational experience, Engage defines a common terminology for the cyber defense community. More than a matrix, the Engage toolkit includes a guidebook, starter kit, worksheets, posters, and other free resources to decrease planning obstacles while increasing expertise.
