This week, Allan is joined by some serious heavy hitters in cyber. Richard Struse (Director for the Center for Threat-Informed Defense at MITRE Engenuity), Jonathan Baker (Director of Research & Development, Center for Threat-Informed Defense at MITRE Enginuity), and Jonathan Reiber (Sr. Director for Cybersecurity Strategy and Policy @ AttackIQ). The four are here to have a conversation about CISA's new BOD that outlines 290 key vulnerabilities that require focus, the coincidental mapping of the CVE database to MITRE ATT&ACK, and the implications for all of us. Of special note is the fact that ATT&CK is already mapped to NIST SP 800-53, meaning that we now have an opportunity to move bi-directionally from a threat-informed defense or to start with a framework and back into vulnerabilities. The implications for our industry are huge.
They also discuss briefly an overview of the bi-partisan work in both the Executive and Legislative branches to further cybersecurity interests and the release of CMMC v 2.0. This show is packed.
