How does emotional impact in the wake of cybercrimes affect employees

According to a recent study from Rubrik Zero Labs, the majority of IT and security leaders in Singapore have been greatly affected emotionally by cyber crimes. The report, called "The State of Data Security," was based on feedback from over 1600 global CISOs and CIOs, as well as senior directors from different regions.

The study found that 92% of IT and business leaders in Singapore reported significant psychological impacts from a cyber attack in the past year. The most common effects were concerns over job security and loss of trust among colleagues, with 44% and 50% of participants respectively reporting these issues. The study also found that senior leaders faced an average of 47 cyber attacks in the last year, almost once per week.

To help IT and security leaders cope with the burnout that comes with the constantly evolving threat landscape, the report suggests addressing the shortage of talent in the cybersecurity field, fully utilizing available technology, and standardizing cybersecurity measures across teams.

In conclusion, the report highlights the importance of taking steps to mitigate the emotional toll of cyber attacks and protect the well-being of IT and security leaders. This can be achieved by preparing for these events, using best practices, and addressing the shortage of talent and technology issues that contribute to stress. By doing so, IT and security leaders can better handle the challenges of the threat landscape and maintain their mental health.
