I am helping with a high level Cybersec Organization CONOPS document, and I would appreciate any leads to a template or other Word document that would be helpful.
Although not for security I was impressed by the document the University of Alabama IT department published.
It got the right conversations started
The link provided by Clive had a space at end - kept me from accessing the document directly.
If you have trouble try to use: https://www.uab.edu/it/home/strategic-plan
What about the NIST Cybersecurity Framework? Pardon if I missed something there, but the NIST documentation set is complete. This is the link to check it out. https://www.nist.gov/cyberframework
In SP 800-53, CONOPS as a control is mentioned in PL-7
I don't know if there is a formalized methodology, so I suppose at a minimum a statement of how the system is to be operated would work. (However, if you don't think it's too much, maybe an Executive Summary style would work - Who, what, where, when, why, how. But just KISS it.)
Thank you, Clive and Clay for the useful input. As far as PL-7 goes, that is a requirement for the CONOPS of a system. It doesn't present much practical guidance for the content of such a document, and it is not concerned with the Concept of Operations of an OU such as a Cybersecurity Program.
This is not really a template but I use this as a guide when a brief senior managers or train new people.
Risk Management Framework is my world...since i work in the Government realm.
My Google search of +CONOPS +TEMPLATE revealed a good deal of information.
The first hits were in fact templates and how tos concerning the composition of the CONOPS document. I hope you will find the templates useful.
