According to the 2023 Voice of the CISO report from Proofpoint, a prominent UK cybersecurity and compliance company, Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and other cybersecurity professionals have returned to a heightened sense of concern, similar to that experienced early in the pandemic. A staggering 68% of surveyed CISOs worldwide feel exposed to a material cyber attack, compared to the 48% figure from the previous year. This report represents a shift back to 2021, when almost two thirds of CISOs believed that a material attack was imminent. What's noteworthy is that UK CISOs feel the most vulnerable compared to their global counterparts, with 84% of them feeling at risk in 2023 compared to 60% last year and 81% in 2021.
Commenting on the report, international law firm Pinsent Masons recommends CISOs should collaborate with in-house legal teams to combat stress and work-related burnout.
