Risky Biz Soap Box: Chris Kennedy on the latest MITRE ATT&CK developments

AttackIQ's very own Chris Kennedy joins the show...

These Soap Box podcasts are wholly sponsored. That means everyone you hear on one of these editions of the show, paid to be here. But that’s ok, because we have interesting sponsors!

Today’s sponsor is AttackIQ. They make an attack and breach simulation platform. They started sponsoring risky biz when they were a little baby startup, but these days, as you’ll hear, attack sim is actually emerging as a budget line item, particularly for larger companies.

They use the platform to test their existing controls, figure out where they have gaps or bad products, then kick on to planning from there… then retest, evaluate, plan, implement, etc etc etc.

For a lot of organisations, something like this is going to be really helpful. Another super helpful thing is that AttackIQ is all in on MITRE ATT&CK.

AttackIQ is, in fact, one of the first vendors I know of that jumped on the MITRE ATT&CK bandwagon. They got in early, and this podcast is mostly going to be focussed on ATT&CK. Chris Kennedy is AttackIQ’s CISO and VP of customer success! He did one of these soap boxes last year and it was really popular with the CISOs who tune in to risky biz.

He joined me for this discussion about MITTRE ATT&CK; where it’s at, where it’s going, how people are using it and how AttackIQ is using it to make its products more useful.
