Nicola Whiting, Chief Operating Officer, Titania explains why organisations are turning to automated cyber security to win the fight against cyber-criminals and state-sponsored hackers

Anyone searching Google for ‘automated hacking tools’ is immediately offered an array of sites where they can quickly download highly disruptive tools.

Weapons of choice for hackers here tend to be those that dramatically simplify and multiply sophisticated cyber-attacks.

The increase in availability of automated hacking technologies coincides with a rise in the magnitude of online attacks.

Last year, the Dyn attack saw 100,000 IoT devices hijacked and used as platforms for launching the largest recorded cyber-attack of its kind.

Earlier this year, the WannaCry ransomware attack infected more than 300,000 computers, hitting dozens of healthcare organisations in the US and bringing down multiple trusts within the UK’s National Health Service.
