The debate about automating cybersecurity operations has raged for many years now, with varying views on the extent of the role these technologies can play. Amid surging cyber-attacks, the need for automation in areas like threat detection and response has never been stronger. However, implementing these technologies effectively is another matter entirely.
Automating menial and repetitive tasks is common, but means incurring development overheads, resulting in teams having to maintain a wild motley collection of scripts and code. Additionally, tools like anti-spam, intrusion protection systems, or security, operations, automation, and response (SOAR) solutions, have often led to usability issues, blocking legitimate activities. 
In this session, a panel of experts will highlight the current state of automation in cybersecurity and offer best practice advice on how to utilize existing technologies.  
Tune in to hear:

  • Lessons learned from automation, past and present
  • What to automate and when to keep the human in the loop
  • How advances in machine learning and AI can help with better automation
