Incident automation describes the use of AI to handle cybersecurity incident management. Specifically, this system is designed to ensure that cyber incidents are detected and resolved promptly.
Incident automation is quickly becoming a standard cybersecurity practice for a growing number of organizations. That’s because automated incident management reduces the mean time to detection and, thus, ensures that incidents are resolved faster.
Importantly, automation means less involvement from IT staff, reducing the number of human errors (for example, false positives).
Incident automation is part of the SecOps meta trend.
SecOps (short for “security + operations”) is the organized collaboration between operations and IT security departments.
Traditionally, security and IT departments have worked in silos. And SecOps is gaining traction in the enterprise space as a way to improve collaboration between these critical departments.
In fact, 85% of organizations say that SecOps initiatives are part of their future strategy.
