Practice makes perfect, but practice requires access to realistic scenarios preferably based on real life cases. This Cyber Table top exercise of crypto-mining scenario outline depicts a recent attack against a TrustPeers client. The elements have been anonymized and details have been modified to protect the client’s privacy and eliminate any risk of identification.

The IT Manager notices that the company’s AWS hosted cloud application slowed down to a crawl at 4 AM. The IT team is unable to identify the underlying reason. They are asking the CISO to investigate.

Your mission is to find and remove the crypto-mining malware and ensure it is not maintaining persistence anywhere on your network.

This scenario outline can be used as a base for creating your in-house playbook based on the delineated phases. To add an additional layer to the practice of this scenario, we advise you to also download the 5 steps for CEOs in case of ransomware attack presentation Alternatively, you can book a practice session in a TrustPeers War Room and train with interactive playbooks.
