(Last Modified:09-Aug-2023)


This Online Training (OLT) course introduces and applies the concept of thinking like an adversary based on the cyber-attack kill chain frameworks that is critical in implementing proactive and effective cybersecurity measures to outpace the cyber threats. We will accomplish this by:
  • Characterizing general cyber-attack kill chain and techniques using the Lockheed Martin Cyber Kill Chain®.
  • Analyzing common tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) that cyber threat actors may use to execute different classes of cyber-attacks on Department of Defense networks and systems using the MITRE ATT&CK framework.
