The current threat landscape has created new challenges for security analysts and incident responders, as both the number of alerts and their complexity have increased significantly. Many organizations, whether they have small IT teams or dedicated SOCs (security operation centers) end up overwhelmed by the number of alerts they must handle. As responders often lack the time or resources to investigate every alert, or even prioritize the most critical ones, a high-risk threat might go unnoticed. Potentially, this could allow devastating breaches to occur, damaging an organization’s finances and reputation. CrowdStrike® is solving these challenges by implementing features and adopting standards that help improve analyst’s productivity and prevent breaches. One of these initiatives is the adoption of the MITRE ATT and amp;CK framework across multiple CrowdStrike processes and products. This move offers obvious benefits for CrowdStrike customers, such as saving them time by adding clarity and advanced context to security alerts and information, and sharing a common language. However, it also provides some hidden advantages, especially regarding cybersecurity. This white paper discusses the value of adopting a common industry framework for describing attacks, explains why CrowdStrike is adopting this framework and provides a detailed discussion of how it will benefit customers.
