Alert fatigue is a major challenge, and the ability of SOC teams to be proactive is hamstrung by the fact that they spend a lot of their time in doing repetitive work, says Cody Cornell of Swimlane, who advocates broader use of orchestration and automation.

"Being able to integrate all your security tools allows you to take the information you learn from any piece of your infrastructure and leverage it across your environment," he says.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco, Cornell discusses:

  • How small and mid-market enterprises need to evolve their security thinking;
  • Moving beyond and AV/AM-driven security strategy;
  • Using automation and best-of-breed technologies to secure the endpoint.

Cornell is CEO and co-founder of Swimlane, where he is responsible for the strategic direction of its security automation and orchestration solution. Collaborating with industry-leading technology vendors, Cornell works to identify opportunities to streamline and automate security activities that speed cyber response and enable security orchestration.
