FlexibleIR Playbooks are process oriented describing what tasks to do. Each task becomes a card on the Kanban boards and can be granularly analysed. Each task will have owner, average time consumed, flags like mandatory or optional, compliance mappings, checklists, comments and subtasks. Playbooks are process focused and do NOT show logic – that’s where workflows come into play.
The primary focus is for expert analysts to create playbooks within minutes and minimum rampup. Simple productivity tooks like trello boards and excel used. Also the playbook is designed for a human to read easily.
Playbooks are key to help meet compliance requirements (e.g., “I keep failing these X security controls. Which playbooks can I use to help bridge the gap?”).
Playbooks help an organization identify where their gaps in capabilities are. Once identified, they can go to vendors to ask them specifically and clearly, “Does your product meet these needs?”
Playbooks can point to other parts of the organization (or maybe even other organizations) that they have a dependency on, and they need help. (e.g., “I keep failing this process! Oh, I see in my playbook that Joe, in the SOC, actually has an action here, but never does it. I’ll work to bridge that gap.”).
Playbooks can be broken down into multiple components. If so, it’s recommended to create a cover page listing the various components and an overview diagram showing how the pieces fit together.
