A CEO will last 8.4 years in the position, while a CFO clocks in at 6.2 years in average length of tenure. But a look around the boardroom will tell you that longevity isn’t in the cards for overworked, overwhelmed CISOs, with most only spending an average of two years in the role before calling it quits. This trend is no coincidence - CISOs are at the top of the list for burnt out, especially this year, as organizations accelerated digital transformation nearly overnight and employees continue to work remotely. In fact, a recent Nominet study found that 88% of CISOs remain moderately or tremendously stressed. Even if Cybersecurity Awareness Month is done, we should still tip our hats to CISOs and together as an industry, adopt a few best practices that will help alleviate the burden of our valuable security leaders.
