A9 Rise of the Machines – The Importance of Security Automation
Date & Time
Tuesday, June 23, 2020, 4:00 PM - 4:50 PM
Laurence Pitt

Every day we are woken up by a connected alarm, perked up by the automated coffeemaker and perhaps even taken to work in a self-driving car… We live in a world that is becoming ever more connected.

Once we get to work automation is also part of day-to-day work from SaaS applications to WAN management and workload automation, so why does it still feel as though cybersecurity is playing catch-up?

In this session we consider how automation has been used by attackers and how it is evolving for 2020 and beyond, then look at the technologies available to us as cybersecurity professionals that will help keep ahead of these ever-evolving tactics.


The discussion will include:

  • The types of attacks that leverage automation, today and into the future
  • How we can use mitigation to spot and mitigate attacks
  • Some things to watch out for in the future.
