Organizations are trying to be more safe and secure by directing all of their resources to problem-solving activities and become more resilient to cyber-attacks. As advancements in technology have become more rapid, malicious attackers have also become more sophisticated. Hence it is important to be prepared to adopt new automated cybersecurity solutions.
Enterprises globally are seeking methods to improve their profitability and increase efficiency from general activities like smart warehousing to automation, IT, cybersecurity integration. Basically, integrating automation in an existing infrastructure requires many security automation tools. Organizations are using numerous cybersecurity products to automate processes. It is also likely that you might have implemented one or more such tools in your organization.
These automated products identify cyber threats to eliminate identified defects based on the organization’s security protocols. To move more into automation, security equipment like Robotic Process Automation(RPA), Security Orchestration Automation and Response(SOAR) products automate sequence and perform analysis.
As organizations increase their emphasis on migration towards digitization, sophistication, the complex aspect of network infrastructure is rapidly increasing. This digitization of network systems, along with it, bring about a new attack surface. Thus proper defence, monitoring threats and prompt response at the proper time have to be done to save from threats that come with this migration.
While traditional methodologies are still used by organizations for inspecting threat indicators and abnormalities, this also stands as an aspect that doesn’t go well with the organizational setup. Automation can effectively be used by cybersecurity teams as traditional methods prove to be inefficient. Implementing automation stands as an important, reliable mechanism to ensure maximum defence through robust processes, to protect your enterprise.
Adopting automation can lead the security teams to delegate the work to automation products and tools. This can help the teams to focus more on productive functions and complex activities. Thus the machine can learn to be more efficient against cyber-attacks by carrying out repeatable work. The cybersecurity team can now devote more time towards focusing on creative, critical, technical work to resolve issues that improve the organization’s risk posture.
Automation’s and integrating automation tools promise to be the future of Cybersecurity. Smart cyber-expertise in software development, code trick techniques can be brought by advancements in technology. To successfully adopt automation concepts, there are many steps to be carried out. They are as follows:
- Establish extremely fondly relationship between various departments in the organization and the cybersecurity team
- Cybersecurity teams must be trained and equipped with development capabilities and they must be made to report directly to cyber leadership within the organization
- A hybrid approach where core teams can develop tactics and techniques for developments that enhance organizational development and carry out advanced integration activities
It is essential to develop the security team to a better standard with an organization’s adaptation to new technology. When the company’s complex technology expands, evolves and grows to a better standard, security automation and integration tools must continue to grow at the same level. An organization’s cybersecurity blueprint and business’ security holds a greater significance to automation and integration tools.
