In today’s globally connected business environment enterprises are dealing with vast amounts of unstructured data that is being compounded by the increasing number of ways to share this data. Due to this reason mainly both the employers and employees are failing to either understand or care about their responsibilities when it comes to data protection or data privacy. Cybersecurity automation has been considered as the future of IT security, and it is important of using this technology to stay ahead of the threats that organizations face. Cybersecurity Automation can help organizations spot cyberattacks before they happen and save the employee’s time, enabling them to focus on other tasks.
Simplifying IT Security
Cyber security automation can take up a complex and growing threat landscape and make it easier for the organizations to manage. As per a recent article published in Delloite, there are not enough cyber specialists in organizations to deal with the cyber threats, and that the imbalance will likely become much worse. Cybersecurity is too often reactive to hacks and breaches, with actions only taken after a cyber attack has occurred. Organizations rely on the patterns of previous attacks to spot and stop cyberattacks which are not reliable and efficient in preventing new types of attacks. Analytics can predict and screen threats and then, when a threat is detected take some automated corrective actions. Human intervention will still be necessary to confirm and investigate threats, particularly when they are internal, but their jobs will be made much easier and more productive.
Benefits Of Cybersecurity Automation
Cybersecurity automation enable the organizations;
- To streamline their processes
- Reduce task duplication
- Reduced complexity
- Fewer human errors
- Improved and faster decision-making
- Bring cohesiveness and consistency to cybersecurity responses
- Harmonize cybersecurity data.
- Automation can correlate information across different data sources, resulting in faster threat detection than manual analysis.
Implementing Cybersecurity Automation
Three basic approaches to successfully implement automation concepts include:
- Embedding development capabilities in your cybersecurity team to report directly to cyber leadership.
- Partner in cybersecurity with organizational development teams to leverage the capabilities of organizational expertise.
- Utilizing an internal team for tactical development work and organizational development capabilities for complex integration tasks.
As the complexity of cyber security increases and evolves, the need for security automation tools and techniques will continue to expand, becoming an integral part of an organization’s cybersecurity roadmap. Organizations should employ automation to correlate data, generate protections faster than attacks can spread, implement protections faster than attacks can progress and detect infections already present in the network.
