The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has partnered with the Homeland Security Systems Engineering and Development Institute (HSSEDI) and MITRE to launch Decider, a free tool for cyber threat mapping.
This tool simplifies the process of mapping threat actor behavior to the MITRE ATT&CK framework, making it faster and more accurate. Decider guides users through the process with questions, search and filter functions, and the ability to export results.
Decider can be used by network defenders, analysts, and researchers to identify potential threats and vulnerabilities. The tool provides a streamlined approach for categorizing and tracking threat actors’ behavior, enabling organizations to improve their cybersecurity posture.
The tool can also assist organizations in identifying potential weaknesses in their security systems and create a roadmap to address them.
CISA encourages the cybersecurity community to use Decider in conjunction with its recently updated Best Practices for MITRE ATT&CK Mapping guide.
The updated guide provides recommendations for mapping cybersecurity threats to the MITRE ATT&CK framework and highlights the benefits of using this approach. The guide also includes best practices for using the Decider tool, making it easy for users to get started.
Overall, the launch of Decider is a significant step towards improving cybersecurity for organizations of all sizes. The tool offers an efficient and effective approach to threat mapping, enabling organizations to stay ahead of potential threats and vulnerabilities.
With the support of CISA and the cybersecurity community, Decider has the potential to become a go-to tool for organizations looking to enhance their cybersecurity posture.
