CYB 0030 Introduction to Cyber Attack Kill Chain
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.
