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.
