Description

With cybersecurity skills already in short supply, the prospect of losing what little workforce there is to pull from to resignations (especially in the context of the ‘Great Resignation’), is a disturbing one. Rick McElroy will speak to the causes of security burnout and the steps organizations need to take to prevent the loss of the precious resource that is security talent. He will share supporting research findings from VMware’s latest Global Incident Response Threat Report: Manipulating Reality.
