The PsyberReslience Project, the first comprehensive and ongoing effort to address the prevalence and impact of stress, burnout, and mental health challenges in the cybersecurity workforce.
The more than 700,000 professionals that make up America’s cybersecurity workforce are increasingly being described as our digital first responders – a first and unflinching line of defense against an unrelenting wave of cyber-attacks against businesses, governments, and entire communities.
Attacks that the Chairman and President of IBM described as the greatest threat to every profession, every industry, every company in the world. That’s a lot of pressure, and it’s beginning to show.
Like all first responders, there’s increasing concern about the mental wellness of this workforce. Not only has cybersecurity become a very high stress and quick burnout industry, many of those working in it entered the field already burdened with mental health challenges like anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
As these mental health challenges take an increasing toll on the an already strained cybersecurity workforce, it’s time to build PsyberResilience into your risk management calculations. Learn more.
