The International Society of Automation (ISA) has published a feature blog on robotic process automation (RPA)—a tool used in cybersecurity. RPA technology utilizes software robots to mimic how humans execute their security duties and is used for a wide range of applications.
The feature sheds light on how RPA supports incident response, software updates, access authorization, security tests, breach identification, compliance assurance, notification processing, and data categorization.
“Since [RPA] processes information quickly and constantly, organizations mostly use it for any simple rule-based action. In cybersecurity, it focuses on repetitive duties. Since most professionals must complete tedious work repeatedly, it can help immensely,” the article explains.
Access the full article on the ISA Global Security Alliance blog, which covers topics on automation cybersecurity such as risk assessment, compliance, educational resources, and how to leverage the ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards.
