Using MITRE ATT&CK® To Understand Operational Failure Modes In Industrial Control Systems

August 25, 2022 | 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT

SunSpec & Sandia DER Cybersecurity Webinar: Using MITRE ATT&CK® To Understand Operational Failure Modes In Industrial Control Systems


Date: August 25, 2022

Time: 9-10 am Pacific


Understanding how your systems can fail is a vital component in protecting them and knowing which adversarial Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs) are most closely tied to ICS failures is key to this. In this webinar, Adam Hahn and Nik Urlaub of MITRE Corporation will demonstrate how MITRE ATT&CK and MITRE’s Threat-Informed Failure Scenario methodology can be used by cybersecurity professionals to understand ICS operational failure modes and how to link these failures modes to adversary TTPs.


  • Dr. Adam Hahn, Lead Critical Infrastructure Security Engineer, MITRE
  • Mr. Nik Urlaub, Cyber Physical Engineer, MITRE

MITRE ATT&CK® is a globally-accessible knowledge base of adversary tactics and techniques based on real-world observations. The ATT&CK knowledge base is used as a foundation for the development of specific threat models and methodologies in the private sector, in government, and in the cybersecurity product and service community. With the creation of ATT&CK, MITRE is fulfilling its mission to solve problems for a safer world — by bringing communities together to develop more effective cybersecurity. ATT&CK is open and available to any person or organization for use at no charge.
