OPS09-BP05 Learn the expected patterns of activity for operations

Establish patterns of operations activities to identify anomalous activity so that you can respond appropriately if necessary.

Common anti-patterns:

  • Your deployment failure rate has increased substantially recently. You address each of the failures independently. You do not realize that the failures correspond to deployments by a new employee who is unfamiliar with the deployment management system.

Benefits of establishing this best practice: By learning patterns of behavior, you can recognize unexpected behavior and take action if necessary.

Level of risk exposed if this best practice is not established: Medium

Implementation guidance

  • Learn expected patterns of activity for operations: Establish patterns of operations activity to determine when behavior is outside of the expected values so that you can respond appropriately if required.
