The 5 most-used playbooks

Here are the five most-used playbooks that you might be interested to use:

  • Recorded Future Indicator Enrichment Playbook: This playbook enriches ingested events that contain file hashes, IP addresses, domain names, or URLs. Contextualizing these details around relevant threat intelligence and IOC helps accelerate the investigation.
  • Phishing Investigate and Respond Playbook: This playbook helps investigate incoming phishing emails and contains them automatically. With this playbook, investigation time shortens from 90 minutes on average on a single alert to 60 seconds.
  • Crowdstrike Malware Triage Playbook: This playbook enriches the alert that’s detected by Crowdstrike, and provides additional context for determining the severity. 
  • C2 Investigate and Contain Playbook: This playbook is designed to perform the investigative and potential containment steps required to properly handle a command-and-control attack scenario.
  • Recorded Future Correlation Response Playbook: This playbook is used to gather more context about the relevant network indicators as a response to a Splunk correlation search. The playbook gathers context and prompts the analyst. If an analyst approves a block, the playbook will automatically reach out to enforcement technologies and make the requested changes.
