Techniques Addressed by Mitigation

Domain ID Name Use
enterprise T1119 Automated Collection Encryption and off-system storage of sensitive information may be one way to mitigate collection of files, but may not stop an adversary from acquiring the information if an intrusion persists over a long period of time and the adversary is able to discover and access the data through other means.
enterprise T1565 Data Manipulation Consider implementing IT disaster recovery plans that contain procedures for taking regular data backups that can be used to restore organizational data.1 Ensure backups are stored off system and is protected from common methods adversaries may use to gain access and manipulate backups.
enterprise T1565.001 Stored Data Manipulation Consider implementing IT disaster recovery plans that contain procedures for taking regular data backups that can be used to restore organizational data.1 Ensure backups are stored off system and is protected from common methods adversaries may use to gain access and manipulate backups.
enterprise T1070 Indicator Removal on Host Automatically forward events to a log server or data repository to prevent conditions in which the adversary can locate and manipulate data on the local system. When possible, minimize time delay on event reporting to avoid prolonged storage on the local system.
enterprise T1070.001 Clear Windows Event Logs Automatically forward events to a log server or data repository to prevent conditions in which the adversary can locate and manipulate data on the local system. When possible, minimize time delay on event reporting to avoid prolonged storage on the local system.
enterprise T1070.002 Clear Linux or Mac System Logs Automatically forward events to a log server or data repository to prevent conditions in which the adversary can locate and manipulate data on the local system. When possible, minimize time delay on event reporting to avoid prolonged storage on the local system.
enterprise T1070.003 Clear Command History Forward logging of historical data to remote data store and centralized logging solution to preserve historical command line log data.
enterprise T1072 Software Deployment Tools If the application deployment system can be configured to deploy only signed binaries, then ensure that the trusted signing certificates are not co-located with the application deployment system and are instead located on a system that cannot be accessed remotely or to which remote access is tightly controlled.
