Welcome to Mission Critical.
A new talk show on ITSPmagazine, hosted by Karen Worstell.
This is Episode THREE
In this episode, Rick McElroy talks about the people equation behind cybersecurity and the importance of asking the questions around burnout among cybersecurity professionals.
The issue is starting to get more attention—we’re seeing sessions at RSA Conference, DEFCON, and Blackhat.
Defenders suffer from lack of time—not having enough to do a good job, to allocate to key relationships such as family, and also spending time with and on themselves. We owe it to ourselves, and to the community, to figure this out.
We talk about boundaries, the need for meaningful conversation, finding answers, and archetypes, and how much we LOVE this community.
We have to take care of each other. And embrace the weirdness of us! We NEED to be different thinkers—let’s find ways to support that!
