Over the last several years, the MITRE ATT&CK™ framework has been adopted widely by the cybersecurity world. Despite the many resources available on ATT&CK, however, the development team realized that people new to the framework might appreciate some guidance on taking their first steps.

That’s why during summer 2019 the team decided to write a series of blog posts around getting started with ATT&CK, focusing on four primary use cases. For each use case, the authors laid out advice on how an organization could get started with ATT&CK based on available resources and overall maturity.

This publication pulls together their collective wisdom, originally posted on Medium, into a single package.
