Defending The Defenders Of The Cyber Universe: How To Mitigate Stress In Cybersecurity
Stress is meant to be good for us. Some say it helps us accomplish tasks more efficiently and is important for survival. Unfortunately, the modern lifestyle, likely shaped by the advent of technology, has caused the scale to tip heavily toward chronic stress. According to the American Psychological Association's 2017 research, 61% of respondents said work is a very or somewhat significant source of stress. Sadly, no industry is immune to the stress epidemic, including cybersecurity. Cybersecurity has traditionally been a very technology-focused industry, and I haven't seen many leaders give thought to the human factor and stress triggers. What can be done to help support cybersecurity professionals in becoming more buoyant and effective without compromising their mental health? The Rise Of Cyberthreats. Cybercrime has evolved into a sophisticated, high-stakes battle with shifting perimeters that make it challenging to contain, let alone control and eliminate. It’s no longer just about swiping credit card or health information. Cybercriminals are attacking sensitive systems and infrastructure, like those that look after power grids.
