How Robotics Enables Cybersecurity With a Human Touch

How Robotics Enables Cybersecurity With a Human Touch

One of the most common methods of breaking into an organization’s network is to enter the premises and either steal a laptop or server or plug directly into an IP port. For that reason, access control is a vital element of your cybersecurity program. Access control can tell you who has badged into the system, but not who is actually on the premises. However, a patrolling robot can recognize when there is someone present after hours, and with an actual human communicating through the robot’s screen interface, request that the person badge into the system. In this way, by integrating robots with your security team, you can capitalize on robotics technology with the human factor to help security managers know who is in the facility after hours and to help protect your organization from cyber breaches.

Learning Objectives:
1. Evaluate cybersecurity shortfalls regarding access control.
2. Differentiate between robotics solutions based on their integration of the human factor.
3. Improve physical security strategy integration with cybersecurity.
