Act now to reduce IT stress levels, says CAE

IT professionals are dismissive of employer attitudes to security, which they say is adding considerably to stress levels, reveals new research commissioned by IT infrastructure solutions provider CAE Technology Services Ltd (CAE).

In its survey of 200 IT professionals working in UK organisations where the IT function supports 250-2,499 users, only 7% of respondents said security was at the forefront of their organisation’s thinking, even though 92% agree that security risks have increased in the last five years and 62% say they are under more pressure through a combination of security risks and pressure from employers.

More than half (53%) say they feel more stressed about security concerns at work, with 48% complaining that rapid/ forced deployment of new tools as a result of hybrid working has created challenges around security. Four in 10 complain of insufficient resources and training.

Dene Lewis, Head of Technical Strategy and Direction at CAE, said: “We’ve seen a real sea-change in security architectures and hybrid working impacting how organisations manage their IT security and those who provide it. Organisations must act now to ensure they have a secure business and a happy, healthy workforce.”
