It’s​ ​a​ ​universal​ ​truth​ ​acknowledged​ ​that​ ​IT​ ​and​ ​security​ ​teams​ ​have​ ​too​ ​much​ ​to​ ​do,​ ​and​ ​never enough​ ​resources​ ​to​ ​do​ ​it.​ ​Traditionally,​ ​there​ ​are​ ​tactical​ ​tasks​ ​that​ ​security​ ​organizations​ ​own,​ ​but invest​ ​far​ ​too​ ​many​ ​resources​ ​in:​ ​alert​ ​triage,​ ​managing​ ​vulnerabilities,​ ​and​ ​more.​ ​These​ ​tasks​ ​lead to​ ​alert​ ​fatigue,​ ​but​ ​worse,​ ​they​ ​suck​ ​up​ ​valuable​ ​time​ ​that​ ​security​ ​experts​ ​could​ ​be​ ​using​ ​to strategically​ ​design​ ​and​ ​improve​ ​defenses. Automation​ ​is​ ​often​ ​an​ ​obvious​ ​solution,​ ​but​ ​why​ ​is​ ​it​ ​still​ ​so​ ​hard​ ​to​ ​implement?​ ​What​ ​if​ ​you​ ​could scale​ ​your​ ​security​ ​tasks​ ​beyond​ ​your​ ​organization​ ​and​ ​instill​ ​a​ ​sense​ ​of​ ​ownership​ ​of​ ​security posture​ ​cross-functionally?​ ​This​ ​talk​ ​will​ ​discuss​ ​how​ ​organizations​ ​can​ ​scale​ ​by​ ​using​ ​technologies like​ ​security​ ​orchestration​ ​and​ ​automation​ ​platforms,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​ways​ ​Rapid7​ ​is​ ​empowering​ ​lean security​ ​and​ ​IT​ ​teams​ ​to​ ​operate​ ​more​ ​effectively.
