The British Interactive Media Association (BIMA) recently revealed that tech workers are five times more likely to suffer from a mental health problem than the wider population. 

Nominet’s latest CISO Stress Report has also revealed that almost nine in ten (88%) chief information security officers (CISOs) consider themselves under moderate to high stress levels. The same report revealed that CISOs lose on average $35 000 a year in unpaid overtime, while increased stress levels have resulted in a 26-month tenure on average.
