Scenario:

more weeks have passed and your CISO is excited about implementing the
new controls and solutions that you’ve recommended. Your detailed
analysis of the operational environment and alignment of security
solutions to the business mission and goals was spot on!

they’ve identified additional funding that may be applied towards
security. You have asked to implement Security Automation (read about it
