Byron Love, senior program manager of cyber protection services at Raytheon's intelligence, information and services business, has said organizations should adopt automated platforms and train security analysis teams to protect critical infrastructure from threat actors.

He wrote in a GCN insight piece published Thursday that advanced technology such as machine learning and artificial intelligence could help organizations automate the incident response process and allow security analysts to focus on threat assessment work.

Love noted that an automated threat intelligence system could also help government agencies detect and mitigate network threats.

"Unlike with weather events, there are no mature response protocols for cyber storms, such as digital espionage or ransomware, virus and denial of service attacks. These storms can and eventually will victimize all types of organizations," he said.

He added that analysts should be trained to utilize tools and methods to examine threats, produce data-based threat response playbooks and implement the guide in the event of a critical cyber event.
