Trustwave, Singtel’s global cybersecurity and managed security services company, first published this report two years ago not knowing it would become an annual endeavor. But readers were immediately drawn to the content because it humanizes cybersecurity in a unique way by measuring, quantifying and exposing the varying sources of situational pressure that in-house IT security professionals routinely feel and experience.
Based on a survey of more than 1,400 IT security professionals from around the world, the report lends valuable context to the struggles that practitioners face on a regular basis. Every year, the report evolves with the times by including additional options for some questions and even adding in new and timely questions that can help us best assess modern-day security pressures. At its conclusion, the report offers practical recommendations for alleviating the pressure.
