Automation has become a basic necessity across all major industries, taking regular work to the next level, where bots and other solutions create efficiencies in traditionally people-heavy customer service tasks. However, rushed or fragmented business processes can expand the attack surface for security challenges and present undesirable cyber risks. The implementation of automation requires adequate preparation, a strong investment, and a meticulous strategy to avoid security challenges and reputation-damaging mistakes.

A recent survey reports that the majority of automation projects fail to take off due to their complexity.

A vast majority of business leaders are not happy with their robotic process automation (RPA) implementation speed.
