Intelligent Security Automation, by Ty Miller

With the bad guys' revenue stream estimated by the UN to be reaching up to $2 Trillion, the security industry is quickly heading towards Security Automation to gain immediate capability and capacity enhancements within their operational security teams. This enables organizations to effectively and efficiently stay on top of the constantly evolving threats, attacks and security breaches.

In order to have any chance of staying safe moving forward, organizations must quickly build their Security Automation capabilities. This includes automated collection and analysis of internal and external intelligence data, orchestrated intelligence-integrated security infrastructure, automated incident response analysis and actions, and frequent automated penetration testing. These Security Automation activities provide organizations with context-based risk prioritization to maximize security budgets and the effectiveness of operational security teams to reduce risk.
