This worksheet helps the defender organize the revealed and concealed facts and fictions that will be used to build the engagement narrative.

Cyber denial involves concealing critical facts and fictions to prevent the adversary from forming correct estimations or taking appropriate actions. Cyber deception involves revealing deceptive facts and fictions to mislead the adversary.

To tell an effective and coherent engagement narrative, it is useful to consider the following questions:

  1. What do you want the adversary to see in the environment?
  2. What do you want the adversary to think about the environment?
  3. What do you want the adversary to do in the environment?

Based on the answers to these questions, the defender can decide which facts and fictions to reveal or conceal. This worksheet helps the defender organize this information.
