Cybersecurity Case Study: Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

About the Program

Recent advancements in Robotic Process Automation (RPA) are transforming work across all aspects of an organization, including cybersecurity. Significant benefits are achieved by automating financial transactions, human resource tasks such as onboarding, management of information technology configurations and automated cybersecurity response actions. The buzz over RPA is growing as many companies achieve in-quarter Return on Investment (ROI) from their RPA initiatives. In multiple cases a company has reported automating repetitive tasks and saving tens or hundreds of thousands of hours of human work that can be otherwise focused on higher level problem solving to forward business objectives. RPA is now a mainstream topic and program managers can review detailed analysis and the maturity of different solutions collected by independent research companies such as Gartner’s Magic Quadrant and the Forrester’s Wave assessments.

This month’s PMI Cloud & Cybersecurity speakers will discuss RPA’s main features and benefits to help set the foundation of how RPA can be used across any vertical. Several examples will be presented of how RPA has transformed work in the Cloud and Cybersecurity areas to free up human hours from mundane tasks so people can focus on more relevant problem solving. At the end of this session, you will have a basic understanding of RPA capabilities and witness several examples of successful automation in production right now.
