Improving Enterprise Security Team EffectivenessUse Automation to Free Teams to Focus on High-Impact Tasks, Says Cequence's Franklyn Jones
With cybersecurity teams increasingly overworked and understaffed, organizations must prioritize more intelligent approaches to freeing teams from having to grapple with mundane tasks, says Franklyn Jones of Cequence Security.
The upsides are clear, he says: Automating grunt work helps avoid errors while freeing experts to focus on high-impact tasks improves retention and helps organizations respond more quickly to emerging events.
In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Cybersecurity Summit in New York, Jones also discusses:
- Why so much time and money gets wasted on mundane security tasks;
- Challenges posed by increasing architectural complexity and the need for greater vendor interoperability;
- The need for more intelligence and automation.
Jones is chief marketing officer for Cequence Security. Previously, he held positions at Bromium, Spikes Security, Cyphort (acquired by Juniper Networks) and Palo Alto Networks.
