Robotic Safeguards: Strengthening Robotics Process Automation Security Posture

EasyChair Preprint no. 11346

8 pagesDate: November 20, 2023


Robotic Process Automation (RPA) has emerged as a transformative technology, streamlining operations, and optimizing workflows across industries. However, the proliferation of RPA brings forth significant security concerns that demand immediate attention. This paper explores the critical aspects of bolstering RPA security posture to mitigate risks associated with these automated systems. The inherent benefits of RPA, including enhanced efficiency, reduced errors, and increased scalability, are accompanied by potential vulnerabilities. Threat actors continuously seek ways to exploit these vulnerabilities, posing threats such as data breaches, system manipulations, and operational disruptions. This paper delves into the multifaceted approach required to fortify RPA security. It encompasses a thorough examination of the following key components: Access Control and Authentication: Implementing robust access controls and multifactor authentication mechanisms to safeguard RPA systems against unauthorized access and credential theft. Encryption and Data Protection: Employing encryption techniques and stringent data protection protocols to secure sensitive information processed by RPA bots. Incident Response and Recovery Planning: Develop robust incident response strategies and recovery plans to swiftly address security breaches and minimize their impact on RPA operations. By implementing these measures, organizations can fortify their RPA security posture, thereby fostering trust, resilience, and longevity in their automation initiatives.
