welcome to model one less than three
00:02
tactics.
00:06
In this lesson, we will define and explore what an attack tactic is
00:11
as well as start to build an appreciation for how these tactics fit into the overall attack. TTP model
00:21
tactics can be defined as the goals and adversary has during an attack.
00:26
We can think of this as why they perform each action or behavior during a campaign.
00:33
And while the list of tactics may differ across technology domains or matrices,
00:38
as you'll see,
00:39
there's plenty of overlap.
00:41
And this list of tactics is relatively static over time.
00:48
The attack model treats tactics as objects, each of which is assigned a unique ID.
00:56
Tactics also have short and long descriptions, as you can see from example below. With the persistent tactic
01:07
going back to our Matrix view, you can see that tactics are represented as column headers
01:15
zooming in on an individual tactic. In this case, the labor movement.
01:19
You can see that there are various techniques and some techniques associated with performing
01:23
behaviors that achieve the goal of the overall tactic of lateral movement.
01:27
We'll dive into technique and some techniques later,
01:34
and with that, we reach our less than three knowledge check
01:37
and attack tactic is,
01:38
please take a moment and positive video and select the correct answer before proceeding.
01:49
In this case, the correct answer was B and attack tactic is an intermediate objective of the adversary.
01:57
And with that, we've reached the conclusion of less than three
02:00
in summary attack tactics represent adversary goals or why they perform actions
02:07
and finally,
02:08
tactics are assigned unique IEDs and lead us into more specifics regarding adversary behaviors such as techniques and some techniques.
