MITRE's Crown Jewels Analysis (CJA) is a process and corresponding toolset for identifying those cyber assets that are most critical to the accomplishment of an organization's mission. Successfully used for seven years to help government sponsors make their systems more resilient, CJA provides a rigorous, mission-decomposition approach to uncover vital mission dependencies – even those that are too subtle for less rigorous methods to detect. CJA captures not only mission-level impacts, but also task- and function-level impacts, useful for developing mitigation strategies and operate-through procedures.
