Playbooks, Sometimes Known As Standing Operating Procedures (SOP) Or Runbooks Paper.

BACKGROUND

Playbooks, sometimes known as Standing Operating Procedures (SOP) or runbooks, are used for troubleshooting common issues. They are often created by a team of employees who are trained to manage security issues. Playbooks often include bulleted lists, step-by-step instructions, and/or diagrams; all of which make it easy to follow troubleshooting instructions.

Throughout the next four weeks, you will develop a playbook for a fictional company that hired you to write their playbooks and manage the team. The first portion of the playbook is a response to malware at the company.

Outline a 2- to 3-page playbook in which a malware attack of your choice occurs.

Include the following information:

  • Details of a specific piece of malware
  • The exploited vulnerability and its attack vector
  • Two risks of this malware
  • Step-by-step instructions on how to resolve the malware attack

Note: Numbered or bulleted steps/guidelines make the document easy to for others to follow under potential stressful situations. Paragraphs can be used to help support the steps/guidelines.
