Insights and Highlights from Brussels

Yesterday, the buzzing capital of Brussels hosted the Twelfth EU MITRE ATT&CK® Community Workshop at the Business Square venue. This really is a key event for cybersecurity professionals. The Centre for Cybersecurity Belgium (CCB) organises this event, sponsored by the MITRE Engenuity Centre for Threat-Informed Defence. Over 1500 in-person and online attendees joined this hybrid event. It highlighted the most recent developments in the MITRE ATT&CK® Framework, a crucial tool in the field of cybersecurity.

Seamless Start to a Knowledge-Packed Day

The day began smoothly with a well-organised reception and badging process. All attendees were quickly settled in. The welcoming aroma of croissants, coffee, and tea set a perfect start for a day dedicated to cybersecurity.

At 09:30 AM, the chairman of the CCB officially kicked off the workshop. He emphasised the massive turnout and the importance of such gatherings for the cybersecurity community. Insightful presentations and discussions filled the agenda. Prominent speakers such as Kevin Holvoet (CCB), Rajendra Mekhale (Itsme), Victor Curalea (European Commission), and Scott Small (Tidal), among others, were present.


Key Takeaways and Highlights

The morning sessions covered various topics, focusing on strategic visions of security, the roles of Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs), and top-level risk assessments. One of the significant discussions revolved around integrating Generative AI (GenAI) and large language models (LLMs) in security practices. The debates highlighted both the potential benefits and challenges these technologies bring to the field.

Rutger Saelmans, our managing partner, was personally invited to attend the workshop day.

One of his standout presentations was on the collaboration between red, blue, and the emerging purple teams. This integrated approach combines offensive and defensive security measures. nFuse actively incorporates this into its practices, ensuring robust security frameworks for its clients.


“The workshop was eye-opening, especially the discussions on how AI and machine learning reshape the cybersecurity landscape. The talk on OT and IT security in combination with rail safety was particularly impactful, highlighting real-world challenges and innovative solutions.” – Rutger Saelmans

Networking and Knowledge Sharing

The lunch break offered a spread of bread, sandwiches, and sweets, allowing attendees to network and exchange ideas. These informal interactions are invaluable, fostering a sense of community and collaboration among cybersecurity practitioners.

The afternoon sessions continued to build on the morning’s momentum. In-depth talks on various aspects of the MITRE ATT&CK® Framework followed. The practical insights and best practices shared by peers in the user community were particularly beneficial, offering real-world applications and solutions.

The Twelfth EU MITRE ATT&CK® Community Workshop in Brussels was a success. It provided a platform for knowledge sharing, networking, and discussing the future of cybersecurity.
