Why these cybersecurity researchers are automating vulnerability assessments

System complexity is preventing humans alone from finding vulnerabilities, so researchers in the UK and at CMU are working to automate an online cybersecurity system support service to help analysts.

There is an axiom that cuts to the chase when it comes to crime, digital or otherwise: The bad guys only need one way to break in, whereas the good guys must find and fix every possible vulnerability. Stated that way, it is easy to understand why the bad guys seem to be winning.
