Plan the best and most cost-effective response to malicious software by using the Infrastructure Planning and Design Guide for Malware Response. This guide assists organizations in determining the appropriate response strategy to an incident or outbreak of malware. The guide discusses three primary recovery methods: cleaning the system, recovering system state, and rebuilding the system. Each method presents different risks to the organization. The guide also describes approaches to investigating outbreaks and cleaning infected systems. Read this guide to make an informed decision about how to return the systems to operation while limiting the company’s exposure.

Infrastructure Planning and Design guides streamline the planning process by:

  • Defining the technical decision flow through the planning process.
  • Listing the decisions to be made and commonly available options and considerations.
  • Relating the decisions and options to the business in terms of cost, complexity, and other characteristics.
