CISO Stress Increasing with Cybersecurity Threats

  • Attention to cybersecurity and the ris=k it brings to companies…leads to more stress on those chief information =security officers (CISOs) who must either stop these attacks before they ha=ppen or reckon as effectively as possible with the aftermath and fallout.
  • 88 percent of CISOs consider themselves under moderate or high levels= of stress, only a slight decrease from the 91 percent of executives who re=ported similar results in 2018.
  • This level of stress is one reason why the average tenure of CIS=Os is only 26 months.
