Cyber Operational Planning (2)

Guidelines for creating a Mission Update Brief

A Mission Update Briefing (MUB) provides updates on the progress of a mission to interested parties. It includes new information on the mission’s goals, objectives, and status, as well as any changes to the original plan. The briefing also assesses the current risks and challenges faced by the mission and offers recommendations on how to address them.

Guidelines for creating a CONOP Brief

A Concept of Operations (CONOP) is a critical document that outlines a commander’s intent and plan for a cyber operation. This document helps to ensure that all associated parties are on the same page, and also serves as a point of reference for future operations. By creating a CONOP, a commander or team leader can better assess and mitigate risk, while also clarifying the desired outcome of the operation.
