Introducing the 2017 Security Pressures Report from Trustwave

It may sound counterintuitive, but a healthy job is one that inevitably delivers pressures - yet does so within boundaries. The pressures may not bring peace of mind, but they are appropriate in relation to your abilities, your available support and resources, and the control you have over your work.

For IT and security professionals, however, that is not always the case. Not only are you operating within a highly complex domain that requires often-elusive specialized knowledge and skills, you also are waging daily battle against determined and unpredictable adversaries who are attempting to exploit vulnerabilities across a growing attack surface of which you likely don't have a full handle. Your pressures may go from ones that keep you on your toes to bonafide occupational hazards.

The 2017 version, which polls 1,600 IT and security professionals from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Singapore and Japan, once again diagnoses and quantifies your top stressors - from operational restraints to data breach worries and repercussions to people pressures. The report also lays out recommendations for helping you to mitigate those or, at the very least, better align them with your capabilities.

  • Who from your organization is exerting the most pressures. 
  • Your biggest responsibilities when it comes to deterring threats. 
  • The most worrying consequences of a data breach. 
  • Whether the insider or external threat induces the most strain. 
  • How to turn pressures into a positive.

Please enjoy the report and let us know what you think!
