Cyber-Robotic Harmony: Securing Robotics Process Automation Ecosystems

EasyChair Preprint no. 11348

9 pagesDate: November 20, 2023


As businesses increasingly adopt Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to streamline operations and enhance productivity, the convergence of digital and physical realms through RPA introduces a new paradigm of Cyber-Robotic Harmony. This integration brings forth numerous benefits but also presents a unique set of cybersecurity challenges that demand immediate attention. This paper delves into the intricate landscape of securing RPA ecosystems, emphasizing the imperative need for a harmonious coexistence between cyber systems and robotic entities. It explores the vulnerabilities within RPA frameworks, including potential entry points for cyber threats, risks associated with unsecured automation, and the cascading impacts of compromised robotic processes on organizational integrity. Additionally, the paper investigates contemporary cybersecurity frameworks tailored explicitly for RPA environments. It analyzes the effectiveness of encryption protocols, access controls, and anomaly detection mechanisms in fortifying RPA systems against cyber intrusions. Moreover, it highlights the significance of continuous monitoring, threat intelligence integration, and adaptive response strategies in mitigating evolving cyber threats targeting the interconnected web of digital and robotic systems. By establishing a symbiotic relationship between cybersecurity measures and RPA functionalities, organizations can safeguard their automated workflows, uphold data integrity, and propel digital innovation while mitigating potential cyber threats in this harmonized landscape.
