I discuss in my latest DarkReading piece: https://www.darkreading.com/operations/20-signs-you-need-to-introduce-automation-into-security-ops/a/d-id/1331005.  In the piece, I offer different pinpointed areas within security operations where it may make sense to introduce automation.  This is in contrast to how some approach automation, which is to settle on an automation solution and then go looking for a problem to solve with it.  Hope you enjoy the piece.
