Cloud Security Automation 

With companies migrating their services and network infrastructure to the cloud, network administrators have to deal with an ever increasing amount of security alerts and events. The growing workload of these professionals can be radically reduced by automating the simple but time-consuming and repetitive tasks. As part of our research we explored how we could further advance the solutions provided by existing platforms addressing this problem. We introduce a more dynamic method of event processing, that allows the reactive system to adapt to changing environments. It automatically builds a system-profile dependent list of appropriate actions which can be executed to handle the seen or predicted events.
