Partners in Cybercrime Prevention: CyCognito Joins the MITRE Engenuity Center for Threat-Informed Defense

By Randy Streu | February 15, 2022

Advanced and coordinated attacks from nation-states and other groups of adversaries are leading to substantial losses across the globe. Attackers are using advanced techniques and have the advantage of time. They only need to be right once. 

As defenders, we need to stay current on the latest techniques and tools being used. We must be right all of the time to prevent breaches. Because of this, it’s important that we find ways to work together as a security community in the battle against attackers. 

That’s why we are excited to be a founding Affiliate of the MITRE Engenuity Center for Threat-Informed Defense joining our colleagues from additional Affiliate companies in the unified fight to prevent cybercrime. The center is a privately funded research and development organization committed to advancing the state of the art and the state of the practice in threat-informed defense globally. As a community, we can collaborate on best practices, new strategies, and innovative technologies that can help protect us from the continuous onslaught of the adversaries. To learn more about the Center, please visit their website.

Frameworks such as MITRE ATT&CK® are key to our joint success as they form a common language for communication, which is critical to interoperability amongst the many solutions that customers deploy as defense. It’s not enough to react to attacks in real time. The Center for Threat-Informed Defense will help CyCognito’s ability to pre-empt potential attacks and better prepare organizations across their entire attack surface.

As a founding Affiliate, CyCognito is committed to collaborating on and adopting the research and best practices produced in collaboration with the Center in our commercial solution to better protect the global community. Together with other Participant organizations, we collectively create solutions for a safer world.
