Decision Trees - AWS Security Incident Response Guide

Decision Trees

Sometimes, different conditions can require different actions or steps. For example, you might take different actions based on the type of AWS account (development versus production), the tags of the resources, the AWS Config rules compliance status of those resources, or other inputs.

To support you in the creation and documentation of these decisions, we recommend you draft a decision tree with your other teams and stakeholders. Similar to a flow chart, a decision tree is a tool that can be leveraged to support decision making, helping to guide you to determine the optimal actions and outcomes based on potential conditions and inputs, including probabilities.
