Security Automation: Principles, Opportunities, Risks, and Examples
One of the fundamental principles of any security program is a focus on reducing the “timeline to compromise” for security issues. Not only are attacks getting more and more sophisticated, but they are also starting to get more aggressive as all of us have been forced by the pandemic crisis into new modes of working. Responding well to these challenges requires the ability to focus your resources on your most challenging security problems. Manual processes just cannot keep up with these changing security needs, especially as your organization grows. Thus, using automation as much as possible can help you scale to better manage necessary change.
In this presentation, Mike Mellor, Head of Security for the Digital Experience Business at Adobe, will share his insights on these issues and talk about how Adobe is using automation throughout our security efforts to better focus our resources, be smarter about resource expansion as our business continues to grow, and better “foolproof” our processes. Mellor will provide details on automation techniques Adobe is using in application security, operational security, compliance, and enterprise security teams. These are techniques based upon industry best practices that you will be able to leverage for your own organization.
