Operationalizing the MITRE Engage Matrix

The Engage Matrix helps defenders integrate adversary engagement activities their defensive cyber strategy.

Adversary behavior provides the defender with opportunities for engagement. By continuously refining and changing operational activities based on this observed behavior, defenders can integrate adversary engagement activities to drive larger strategic results. This poster shows the four stage cycle. First the defender collects raw data from their network. They then analyzing this data to understand adversary behavior. Next, they can identify opportunities for engagement based on this behavior. Finally, they can implement these engagement opportunities. The cycle continues as the defender continues to refine and iterate.
