CHARLOTTE, NC, UNITED STATES, June 19, 2024 / — MAD20 Technologies, the comprehensive provider of cybersecurity training and credentialing for MITRE ATT&CK Defender™ (MAD), which was recently spun out of MITRE Engenuity™, is thrilled to announce its commitment to donate $1,000,000 towards the training of over 2,000 cybersecurity professionals who are either from underrepresented backgrounds or are former members of the US armed forces. To carry out this effort, MAD20 will be partnering with various organizations across the country who embody this mission. Through this commitment, MAD20 hopes to begin to close the gender, ethnic, and socioeconomic gap to promote diversity in the industry.

MAD20’s cybersecurity training program is recognized for its comprehensive curriculum on MITRE ATT&CK® – a curated knowledge base and model for cyber adversary behavior. MAD20’s approach of continuous skills development and skills assessment serves the mission of teaching towards efficacy rather than static certifications.

“Organizations throughout the world trust MAD20 to continuously develop and assess their cyber practitioners on MITRE ATT&CK. Many of these organizations list MITRE ATT&CK proficiency as a critical job pre-requisite.” said Reggie Stevens, CEO of MAD20. “As such, we recognize the positive impact we can have by improving the job prospects of underrepresented groups and former members of our military through initial and continuous skills development on MITRE ATT&CK.”

The MITRE ATT&CK® Defender™ program, established in 2021, has quickly become a trusted name in cybersecurity education on the ATT&CK framework. With a focus on delivering practical, real-world training, MAD20 prepares individuals and organizations to defend against the latest cyber threats. Their state-of-the-art training modules cover a wide range of topics, from basic cybersecurity principles to advanced threat detection and response techniques.
