ECB to Use TIBER-EU — Hacker Techniques Framework — to Tackle Cyber Threats

May 2, 2018

The Framework for Threat Intelligence-based Ethical Red Teaming (TIBER-EU) is designed to enable European and national authorities to work with financial infrastructures and institutions to put in place a programme to test and improve their resilience against sophisticated cyber attacks.

TIBER-EU is a common framework that delivers a controlled, bespoke, intelligence-led red team test of entities’ critical live production systems. Intelligence-led red team tests mimic the tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) of real-life threat actors who, on the basis of threat intelligence, are perceived as posing a genuine threat to entities. An intelligence-led red team test involves the use of a variety of techniques to simulate an attack on an entity’s critical functions (CFs) and underlying systems (i.e. its people, processes and technologies). It helps an entity to assess its protection, detection and response capabilities.
