TLDR: Job satisfaction for CISOs is decreasing, with 75% considering a career change, according to a study by IANS and Artico. The report found that CISOs feel overworked and under-supported, with mounting demands and poor collaboration with the C-suite. Only 20% of CISOs are considered C-suite level by other executives, and just 50% engage with the board regularly. The study also highlighted a lack of executive training for CISOs and the need for clear guidance on organizational risk tolerance from the board. This decline in job satisfaction aligns with previous research on overworking and mental health issues among CISOs. Increased demands on senior security practitioners has led to a toxic culture of overworking and excessive hours, impacting their mental and physical well-being.
