Towards Secure Robot Process Automation Environments

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


Information security is a part of the cyber security, but the information security will increasingly play a key role in securing and implementing cyber security operations in the future. A big challenge in deployment of robot process automation RPA is that organisations have to give an access to information for software robots like for authorised personnel. People have to take into account the information security and data protection as a basis for a risk assessment, when planning the processing of personal data. This report considers threats and vulnerabilities related to the RPA and examines the opportunities to improve security level in environments of the robot process automation. Observations of security risks are investigated in the case study part, where RPA is deployed in a public service system. Future work of a security assurance in RPA deployment is also described in this paper.
