Mental Health Awareness Week: How can security pros reduce burnout?

Running since 2001, Mental Health Awareness Week is the UK’s national week to raise awareness of mental health, promoting the message of good mental health for all. This has never been more important, as the covid-19 crisis heightens stresses in the cybersecurity industry.

The demanding role of cybersecurity professionals often requires them to work overtime in order to manage critical situations. The high-pressure nature of the role means employees are vulnerable to stress and burnout. In fact, a recent CISCO benchmark study found that 42% of cybersecurity professionals reported to be suffering from cybersecurity fatigue.
