Short Takes – 12-9-22

The changing role of the MITRE ATT@CK framework. article.  Pull quote: “After nine years, MITRE ATT&CK and its use cases have evolved well beyond a reference architecture. In many ways, MITRE ATT&CK has become a “lingua franca” of security operations. According to ESG research, 48% of organizations say they use the MITRE ATT&CK framework “extensively” for security operations while another 41% use it on a limited basis. When asked how important MITRE ATT&CK is for their future security operations strategy, the results were even more impressive. Nineteen percent claim that MITRE ATT&CK is critical, 62% say it’s very important, and 15% believe MITRE ATT&CK is an important component of their security operations strategy.” Impressive numbers but I wonder how many medium and small chemical manufacturers were contacted.

Sinema switches to independent, shaking up the Senate. article. Two other ‘Independents’ caucus with Democrats, so probably does not have practical effect on 51-49 Senate. Pull quote: “In a 45-minute interview, the first-term senator told POLITICO that she will not caucus with Republicans and suggested that she intends to vote the same way she has for four years in the Senate. “Nothing will change about my values or my behavior,” she said.”

Will La Niña continue in 2023? article. A ‘normal’ 2023 hurricane season? Pull quote: “When the change will happen isn’t yet clear. Models give La Niña about a 50-50 chance of lasting from January to March 2023, according to the Climate Prediction Center. Deeper into spring, chances for an ENSO-neutral situation increase.”

Japanese billionaire Maezawa announces crew of artists for lunar voyage. article. Pull quote: “The eight people chosen were DJ and producer Steve Aoki of the United States; Tim Dodd, an American YouTuber; Czech artist Yemi AD; Rhiannon Adam, an Irish photographer; British photographer Karim Iliya; American filmmaker Brendan Hall; and Indian actor Dev Joshi, and K-pop musician TOP of South Korea.” Wish he had wanted an elderly, white-male blogger on the crew (GRIN).
