IBM X-Force IRIS Cyberattack Preparation and Execution Frameworks
The IBM® X-Force® Incident Response and Intelligence Services (IRIS) cyberattack preparation and execution frameworks build upon the industry-standard conceptual approaches to analyzing a cyberattack. These industry-standard approaches include Lockheed Martin’s Cyber Kill Chain*, Mandiant’s Attack Lifecycle*, MITRE’s ATT&CK*, and others.
The X-Force IRIS cyberattack preparation and execution frameworks provide a logical flow representative of attacks today and they also incorporate phases not typically included in other frameworks. As attackers continue to increase in sophistication, X-Force IRIS believes these additional phases are increasingly relevant.
