The world, particularly the technical world, is increasingly talking about the opportunities that automation and AI might be able to offer. But in the excitement surrounding this still relatively new update in online spaces, it is important to ensure that utilising automated platforms is the right thing for your business.
Whenever any new development is rolled out, the first thing to consider is the security of the platform being offered to you. So, is business automation secure?
In short, if done right, the answer to this question is yes. And to give you the peace of mind you so rightly deserve, we’ve put together all of the information you might need to know when it comes to developing a secure automated business practice.
What Is Business Automation?
Simply put, Business Automation is the practice of implementing automated systems to complete everyday tasks that your workforce may no longer have time to complete. Actions such as conducting routine checks such as quality control can easily be implemented via a custom app, and can free up those valuable members of staff for more important tasks.
A number of Microsoft Platforms, such as Power Apps and Power BI, can help to automate businesses. And as the world becomes ever more in tune with the value of utilising all that technological platforms have to offer, these systems continue to grow in popularity.
When it comes to business automation, there are a number of legitimate concerns with regard to cybersecurity and ensuring organisations are no more at risk of attack than they were previously. The most commonplace of these concerns is the fact that, when automation is implemented, it is required that bots have access to sensitive information, which can compromise security integrity in a very real way.
So, what is the best way to input secure business automation? The answer is more simple than you might think: to ensure your automation is safe, appropriate infrastructure needs to be implemented. This infrastructure can help to identify potential risks, and to address these risks by conducting further analysis of the ways in which they might harm your business.

Just as every business is different, their needs also range based on their size and market sector. And because of this, the infrastructure you put in place needs to be able to adapt. That is where Microsoft consultants such as ourselves at Silver Limes truly do come in handy.
