The science of SOAR

Is cybersecurity automation and orchestration actually complicating, instead of reducing, the human workload it is meant to relieve?

Joining us, to discuss this and more, we have Dr. Vasileios Mavroeidis, Cybersecurity scientist at the University of Oslo, specialising in security automation and cyber threat intelligence representation, inference, and sharing.

He explains how he defines cybersecurity automation, and what he sees as the opportunities but also the limitations when minimising human intervention in cybersecurity processes.

Robby and Vasileios also discuss the importance of open standards and open source tools in this domain, and how automation differs in OT environments.
