Fighting Fire with Fire: Automating Cybersecurity

Fighting Fire with Fire: Automating Cybersecurity

When it comes to cybersecurity, automation can benefit many of your processes and protections. Let’s review how automation can be used to protect your business, and by extension, your livelihood.

One of the major cybersecurity concerns of today is how attacks are now frequently automated, making it intensely difficult for a human being to successfully keep up with threats. As a result, it only makes sense to automate your cybersecurity measures as well.

There are a few ways that you can do just that.

Crunching the Numbers

Regardless of how much data you collect, just collecting it isn’t going to benefit your organization all that much - especially when it concerns your security. It also needs to be processed and analyzed, which is simply too big of a job to be done manually.

By compiling data from multiple internal and external sources, a business can better predict how threats will play out, as well as identify those that it hasn’t yet encountered. By utilizing machine learning and automation technologies, this compilation and processing is a much simpler, faster, and more accurate process, bringing your business improved security measures.

Furthermore, many businesses face a lack of security-oriented employees. Automation can help make up the difference, reducing the burden on whatever resources they do have to protect their network.

How Automation Benefits Cybersecurity

There are multiple ways that adopting automation can deliver improvements to your cybersecurity.

Data-Supported Inferences

By sequencing data collected from within your organization, along with data provided by security vendors and other sources, you can use this data to draw conclusions and make predictions about threats, enabling you to catch them more effectively.

Outpacing Attacks with Protections

Cybersecurity is effectively an arms race - as new threats are discovered, new preventative measures need to be implemented to keep them from spreading. Of course, by the time a threat is discovered, it has often already moved on to its next step. This means that these steps need to be predicted and protected in order to stop them. Automated defenses are the most effective means to foil an automated attack, as they are more efficient and accurate.

Detecting Threats in the Network

When a network fails to deter a cyberthreat, it doesn’t immediately become a data breach - and automated protections can effectively analyze data to prevent such an outcome. Since a human being can’t hope to keep up with one of these threats, automation is your best bet at detecting, identifying, and resolving them.
