Re: Good breakdown of the Kill Chain - how prevalent is it?
The term Cyber Kill Chain is suprisingly very prevalent in the industry. I think that almost every security vendor that I can think about used it at least once. I can say for sure that in some cases people don't use it correctly, as they are less familiar with the attackers' tactics and the comlexity of cyber attacks.

When Lockheed Martin was a victim of a targeted attack the whole concept of creating an exploit and using it to target a specific company was realatively new and therefore this was most of the focus in their terminology. Surprisingly people still use this same scheme.

A lot has happened since that breach and I personally know about some targeted attacks that used generic malware and exploits in order to enter a network. The focus today should be the atctive state of the breach, inside the network.

Good breakdown of the Kill Chain - how prevalent is it?
Curious to know from our readers how many of you follow the Cyber Kill Chain model, or some version of it?

And for @Giora Engel -- how prevalent is it, industry wide?
