The Cyber Kill Chain model was developed by Lockheed Martin to describe the process cyber criminals use to target their victims in pursuit of profit. The process involves 7 stages from reconnaissance to action on objectives.
The Cyber Kill Chain Stages
The research, identification and selection of targets.
Preparing and delivering malware (viruses, worms, Trojan horses, ransomware, spyware etc.) into a deliverable payload for delivery to the target.
Transmission of weapon i.e. malware or ransomware to the target via email attachments, websites, USB drives, etc.
Using a vulnerability in the target system to execute code.
Installing malware on computer devices from a remote location.
The establishment of remote command and control to manipulate victims.
Where cyber criminals use hands-on keyboard access to accomplish their goals from a remote location.
