Employee burnout is cyber security professionals’ greatest fear amidst rising cyber threats  

35% of cyber security professionals surveyed have cited employee burnout as the most concerning issue amongst increasing cyber threats. This comes as cyber security teams are put under mounting pressure to tackle the complexity of the modern hybrid enterprise and the necessity to protect corporate data wherever it resides.

According to a poll carried out by  Integrity360 and Vectra, almost 63% of respondents highlighted security of data as being most important to their organisation when establishing the need for effective cyber security services. Of lesser concern was, securing reputation (19%), productivity (12%) and saving money (7%). 

The good news is that organisations are looking to implement critical security measures to ensure greater threat detection and response in 2023, with identity and access management (29.9%) and cloud security (29.7%) on top of the agenda, followed by network (19.6%) and endpoint security (20.6%).  

Richard Ford, CTO at Integrity360, said: “Analysts are facing severe burnout from alert fatigue and Security OperationsCentre (SOC) overwhelm, and organisations are lacking the experience, skills and bandwidth needed to detect and manage security incidents and data – quickly and effectively. The integration of Vectra into our MDR service is a game changer. It allows us to provide a full end to end capability to monitor and proactively hunt threats across the entire hybrid enterprise, delivering advanced Threat Detection and Threat Response services and relieving SOC teams overwhelmed by noise. 

When questioned on the best approaches to future-proof the security of their organisation, 52 % of respondents to the poll pointed to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) as the best means.  

Comprising of four question and answer options and drawing 1,483 responses, the Integrity360 Twitter poll was conducted between 1st-5th December 2022.
