MITRE Engenuity and Cybrary Partner to Offer First-Ever MITRE ATT&CK Training and Certification Product
Innovative partnership arms new generation of ATT&CK defenders with advanced knowledge and certifies their mastery of threat-informed defense to rapidly close the cybersecurity skills gap
Cybrary, the world’s largest online cybersecurity professional development platform, and MITRE Engenuity, MITRE’s tech foundation for public good, announced a partnership to offer MITRE ATT&CK Defender (MAD), a new online training and certification product designed to enable defenders to gain the advantage over cyber adversaries. MAD is anchored by knowledge from the source, the authors of MITRE ATT&CK, and training is freely available to the community through Cybrary’s growing catalog of cybersecurity training and MITRE Engenuity’s continuing service to the public good.
The skills gap among cybersecurity professionals means organizations are unable to keep pace with threats. To better prepare them against agile and evasive adversaries, MAD focuses on teaching and certifying cybersecurity practitioners in the real-world application of ATT&CK for threat-informed defense. MAD is unique in that the credentials carry no set expiration date, instead requiring recertification as the threat environment changes. Practitioners will have to recertify within 90 days of an update to the curriculum to ensure MAD certified defenders continuously stay ahead of adversaries as the threat landscape evolves over time.
“We’re thrilled to work with MITRE Engenuity to add more technical content and timely resources for our entire community,” said Cybrary co-founder and CEO Ryan Corey. “As cyber threats become both more frequent and sophisticated, this new MAD program is a great way for industry professionals to enhance their skills to address the latest attack techniques and strategies.”
“Over the years, we’ve seen the security community embrace our MITRE ATT&CK framework, but many practitioners have struggled to confidently and practically apply it in their work to gain an advantage. With the launch of MAD, practitioners will have access to learn and master the application of the ATT&CK knowledgebase to get ahead of adversaries,” said Steve Luke, director of content, MITRE ATT&CK Defender. “In collaboration with Cybrary, we’re confident in our ability to strengthen the community and make a positive impact to shrink the skills gap.”
