Blog post - The ATT&CK Rainbow of Tactics

I’ve been a huge fan of MITREs ATT&CK framework ever since its release. It has been of enormous value to the whole InfoSec community and it will hopefully continue to remain so for a long long time.

We’re on the verge of one of the biggest overhauls since its release, the introduction of sub-techniques, or when you read this they might be out already.

On the positive side it will also bring a lot more clarity and granularity and it will bring more insight to a lot of people of possible attack techniques they weren’t aware of before.
