Why is incident response automation and orchestration so hot?
16 March 2017, 3:42 pm



I couldn’t attend the RSA Conference this year but many cybersecurity professionals and my ESG colleagues told me that incident response automation and orchestration was one of the hottest topics in the halls of the Moscone Center, through the bar at the W hotel, and even at the teahouse on the garden at Yerba Buena.   

Was this rhetoric just industry hype?  Nope.  This buzz is driven by the demand side rather than suppliers.  In truth, cybersecurity professionals need immediate IR help for several reasons:

1.      IR is dominated by manual processes.  Let’s face it, IR tasks like fetching data, tracking events, or collaborating with colleagues depend upon the organizational, communications, and technical skills of individuals within the security operations team.  These manual processes ultimately get in the way of overall IR productivity.  In a recent research project, infosec pros were asked: ‘Do you believe that your organization’s incident response efficiency and effectiveness are limited by the time and effort required for manual processes?’ Fifty-two percent of cybersecurity professionals responded, “yes, significantly” while another 41% said, “yes, somewhat.”  Furthermore, 27% of cybersecurity pros say they spend 50% or more of their IR time on manual processes.
