CISO Stress Increasing with Cybersecurity Threats

  • Attention to cybersecurity and the risk it brings to companies…leads to more stress on those chief information security officers (CISOs) who must either stop these attacks before they happen 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 reported similar results in 2018.
  • This level of stress is one reason why the average tenure of CISOs is only 26 months.
