Benefits of Security Automation: Make the Most of Your People
By : Tek Editor -
Gone are the days when IT leaders fretted that the benefits of automation would shove people out of jobs. If anything, it’s the opposite: 74% of cybersecurity professionals say that a skills shortage has affected their organizations, continuing a trend of concern over the past few years, according to the report “The Life and Times of Cybersecurity Professionals 2018.”

But in a way, that erstwhile concern is a direct link to the underlying current of all the benefits of automation: the human factor.
