How many people are thinking about a job change due to a variety of reasons?
"Almost one in five infosec pros have quit a job due to overwork or burnout caused by the constant pressure of keeping things safe and doing so without the resources to counter ever-evolving threats.
The is the gloomy picture painted by a report from the Chartered Institute of Information Security (CiiS – previously known as IISP), which surveyed 445 security specialists."
Does this ring true global security practitioners as well?
I feel that their stats are true. Burnout is real although not recognized by health officials or management alike.
We have offered to do a session on this many times at Congress but never have had then selected....;(
As a manager, I used to monitor staff to ensure that they were not burning out or just super stressed.
I think that burnout happens in many industries and really is nothing new.....but usually goes unnoticed as the person typically quits and moved on.
I think that this might lift my spirits a little and help with the stress and Burnout: Can only imagine waking up everyday to the beach and the sun (not sure I would get a lot of work done but I would not be stresses).
