Enhancing SIEM Detections With MITRE ATT&CK Simulations

Introduction Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) platforms are essential tools for detecting and responding to security threats. These systems can analyse and correlate data from various sources to identify potential threats in real-time. However, SIEM systems can become less effective when attackers use advanced or new techniques to evade detection and if they are
