Developed by Lockheed Martin, the Cyber Kill Chain® (CKC) framework is part of the Intelligence Driven Defense® model for the identification and prevention of cyber intrusions activity. The model identifies what adversaries must complete in order to achieve their objective.

In recent years there have been numerous articles written to contest the effectiveness of the Cyber Kill Chain Model as it currently exists. The intent of this article is in no way to disavow or be critical of the work put into creating the Cyber Kill Chain by the LM-CIRT. Instead what this article strives to prove is that with slight modifications there are variances to the CKC that could improve its accuracy in non-traditional attack vectors. Today’s threat landscape has expanded and evermore, cyber-security overlaps many other aspects of security. This article strives to not only reinforce this point but to offer a framework to further the effectiveness of the traditional CKC by providing additional aspects to the CKC, enabling analysts to better understand and further their efforts in stopping data theft and cyber crime more effectively and efficiently.

Purpose of this article – To test the validity of the CKC model against alternative attack vectors that do not utilize the classic cyber kill chain’s workflow, primarily based around internal actor theft of sensitive information.
