Today’s security leaders and their staff are becoming healthcare’s new super heroes. They’re expected to know all and respond at the speed of light. And while this may seem impossible, rest assured, super hero-like abilities are accessible to regular people – people like you.
In this session, a seasoned security veteran will dive into three big struggles most security leaders grapple with today, and follow up with key takeaways for success.
YOU (Key takeaways)
When an organization detects a compromise, rapid incident response can mean the difference between quick containment or a damaging data breach. If you rely solely on manual processes, you’ll struggle with longer response times and face higher risk. But if you automate common investigation and response you augment your workforce, minimize response times and make your organization more secure.
Automation is on the rise, but not all security leaders have embraced the technology.
In this session, attendee will learn why organizations frequently delay embracing automation (loss of control, lack of trust, fear of change), as well as it’s promised benefits (increased efficiency, fewer errors, better decision making).
Is automation in your future? This session will help you decide.
