Automate Everything You Can

Automation will streamline your processes, enable you to quickly change designs, identify rules that can be reused, seamlessly push out policies, conduct risk analysis and auditing quickly, instantly create documentation and validate and reconcile, all in real time. There will always be some tasks that require human intervention, but you will have a more secure system if you keep the people on your team focused on the jobs that need analysis and investigation, rather than mundane tasks that can be automated.

It comes as no surprise to security practitioners that managing security is becoming more and more demanding. Organizations are facing more threats, greater complexity and increased demand for both security and application connectivity.

In this slideshow, Reichenberg has identified seven common pitfalls organizations face and tips for how to deal with them.
