Cybersecurity teams are now more likely to receive management support than to lose their jobs after a cyberattack, according to new data from cyber company, Trellix. The data shows that only 13% of the 500 chief information security officers surveyed said their company fired people or reduced staff in the first year following a major cyberattack. Instead, companies are more likely to increase cybersecurity budgets, create new jobs and responsibilities post-incident, and add new contracted services to their cybersecurity program. Don’t get me wrong, job losses are still happening frequently, but the pacing is a bit slower and more deliberate after forensic analysis and attributing the blame properly.
A new Trellix survey found that few cybersecurity professionals are more likely to get more support after a breach.
