The phenomenon of decision fatigue in cybersecurity
As a dynamic and constantly evolving field, cybersecurity requires rapid, informed decision-making. However, an often underestimated aspect of this process is decision fatigue, which can compromise the quality of strategic and operational choices in IT security. This presentation will look at decision fatigue, its specific impact on cybersecurity professionals, and offer concrete strategies for overcoming the challenges of the field without being overwhelmed.
Real-life experiences will be shared, illustrating how decision fatigue can negatively influence security operations such as incident management, vulnerability management and offensive security activities. The impact on risk management and strategic planning will also be discussed.
In an era of epidemic burnout and perpetual digital transformation, this phenomenon is becoming increasingly important. This presentation will question whether we need to equip ourselves with AI-based decision support systems, hone our mental skills, adjust our work methods, or perhaps opt for a more relaxed approach, or even live in the wilderness.
