What you can do about a stressed and stretched cybersecurity workforce

More than half (54 per cent) of IT security professionals had either left a job due to overwork or burnout, or worked with someone who did, according to the latest Chartered Institute of Information Security (CIISec)’s The Security Profession 2019-2020 report. 

The survey highlights the need for management to tackle this growing crisis facing the industry.

The report pointed to potential causes and consequences. It said that security budgets are not keeping pace with the rising threat level – and when security teams are stretched during holidays or busy periods, 64 per cent said their businesses simply ‘hope to cope’ with fewer resources when necessary, while just over half would let routine or non-critical tasks slip.

Unfortunately, AD faces a surplus of risks every single day. Whether from ever-frequent cyber and ransomware attacks or critical misconfigurations, effective AD cybersecurity risk management can be a daunting endeavour.

Join us for this FREE live webinar on 14 June, where we'll discuss the threats and potential risks you face in your AD environment. See for yourself how to measure AD risk using a risk register (5x5) as well as learn ways you can mitigate those risks to ensure true cyber resilience.
