Government Insights: 
Robots not in disguise

Government Insights
Organisations are increasingly adopting Robotic Process Automation but it’s not straightforward, says Emyr Thomas. Find out why the necessary safeguards need to be in place to maximise its full potential
Today’s organisations are largely built on structured processes, many of which are highly repetitive and labour intensive. That partly explains the allure of modern technology such as Robotic Process Automation.
 
This type of hyper-automation technology can help free-up employees, allowing them to deliver more valuable outcomes rather than constrain their time running through recurring administrative effort.
 
But while this is one of the fastest-growing segments in the enterprise software market, organisations should pause before embracing its full deployment. Not only do they have to reassure employees that this technology is not going to steal their jobs, but they also need to adapt to a new set of threats and risks that differ from those affecting traditional human users, and this requires security teams to think differently about their security posture and controls frameworks.
 

Goverment Insights: Robots not in disguise


Government Insights: Robots not in disguise front cover image Today’s organisations, like those of the past, continue to be built on structured processes, many of which are highly repetitive and labour intensive. That partly explains the allure of modern technology – it’s a way of freeing up the intellectual capacity of employees previously locked in bureaucracy while also delivering huge efficiency and productivity gains.
 
Take Robotic Process Automation (RPA). This type of hyper-automation technology can help free-up employees, allowing them to deliver more valuable outcomes rather than constrain their time running through recurring administrative effort.
 
In this complimentary report, Emyr Thomas shines a light on the burgeoning use of Robotic Process Automation. While security challenges abound, he explains why the integrity of processes and continued availability are increasingly important.
