Cybersecurity Awareness Month - Josh Rickard, Swimlane: Automate Detection, Response, Investigation

This is part of our Cybersecurity Awareness Month (#CSAM) expert insights blog series.


Josh Rickard, Security Solutions Architect at Swimlane:

"Cybersecurity Awareness Month serves as a timely reminder for companies to reevaluate their cybersecurity posture after a tumultuous year of cyberattacks across industries.

The dramatic spike in ransomware and supply chain attacks illustrates that every company, regardless of vertical, is a software company and security will only continue to rise in importance when it comes to ensuring the continued operations of the business.


To protect valuable information and prevent breaches, enterprises must invest in multi-faceted platforms that centralize and automate detection, response and investigation protocols. Security teams need full visibility into IT environments and the ability to respond in real-time to limit the consequences should a cyberattack occur.


By automating and centralizing security processes, organizations can reduce the chance of human error while achieving infinitely smoother execution of security-related tasks and ultimately ensuring that highly-sensitive personal information is kept safe and secure."
