IT Burnout may be Putting Your Organization at Risk
The heavy responsibility of securing organizations against cyber-attacks is overwhelming and weighs heavier on security professionals, recent data shows. In fact, fifty-six percent of team members say their work stress grows yearly and there are no signs of slowing for 2023.
