Automating Cyber Security: March 9, 2016
Federal agencies today face a constant stream of threats – attackers and hackers are motivated, creative, and persistent – and there’s no perfect defense of agency systems. While agencies have invested massive resources to defend their systems, it never seems to be enough, especially as the threat landscape continues to evolve. Through security automation, agencies can identify and mitigate vulnerabilities before they become active threats – enabling information to be shared and leveraged in real time to reduce the response time to cyber incidents.
