What is MITRE ATT&CK Defender™ (MAD)?

MAD is a training and certification ecosystem designed to forge a new breed of cyber defenders better prepared to stop agile adversaries. MAD focuses on teaching and ensuring the real-world application of MITRE ATT&CK® in threat-informed defense. MITRE ATT&CK® subject matter experts have developed bite-sized training for cybersecurity practitioners available through Cybrary’s growing catalog of cybersecurity content.

With a MAD annual subscription, upon completing their training, learners can take experiential certifications to demonstrate their expertise in leveraging MITRE ATT&CK®. Unlike other industry certifications, MAD credentials do not carry an expiration date instead requiring recertification to affirm a learner’s proficiency as the threat environment changes.
