Threat emulation is the art of replicating real-world threats and their various behaviors to test an organization's security posture. It involves creating Intelligence-driven scenarios designed to mimic real-world threats. By emulating these events, organizations can improve incident response, enhance security measures, and ensure robust, effective controls are in place.
In this webinar, Trey will cover:
*Planning: This involves gaining the support of your leadership, defining the scope and objectives of the threat emulation exercise, and assigning roles and responsibilities. It includes identifying the specific threats to simulate, the target systems or assets to test, and the desired outcomes.
*Research and Intelligence Gathering: Gathering information about the chosen threats, including their behaviors, attack techniques, and potential impacts.
*Developing the Emulation Plan: Designing and creating a controlled scenario replicating the chosen threats. This may involve creating a digital twin network, utilizing OSS tooling to prep your behaviors for emulation, or setting up mock attack scenarios.
*Execution: This step involves mimicking the behavior and actions of real-world threats, such as exploiting vulnerabilities, attempting unauthorized access, or replicating malware infections.
*Monitoring and Analysis: Continuous monitoring and analysis of the threat emulation exercise to gather data and identify any vulnerabilities or gaps in security controls. This step involves capturing network traffic, system logs, and other relevant information that can help evaluate the effectiveness of the security measures.
*Reporting and Recommendations: Document the findings and provide recommendations based on your newly acquired actionable Intelligence.
