In the last year, I’ve been part of a panel of security experts that has gathered at various security events to share what we’ve learned about stress and burnout in the IT security industry, and to help people identify when they, or somebody they know, are at risk. We’ve conducted surveys to find out more about these risks and their causes, but the heart of these sessions are the compelling anecdotes from the security professionals who share personal stories of depression or anger, as well as their scars, both emotional and physical. Our presentations and discussions have been a developing project, each session building off of what we learn at every event before it. I’ll be moderating a panel again on this topic at RSA, and we will be revealing original research on career burnout and the causes of stress for security professionals.

In a perfect world, there would be no vulnerabilities. In a perfect patching world there would be a patch for every vulnerability and we would always be able to patch all of our systems as soon as a patch was available. In the real world we do the best we can and struggle with testing cycles, incompatibilities, and legacy applications which means sometimes we have to leave insecure and unpatched systems in production. There are a variety of situations that can cause exposure: Some patches break needed applications or cause compatibility problems Patches may not yet be available for a vulnerability but the systems must stay online and exposed Legacy applications or operating systems may still be required (for example Internet Explorer 6 may be required to access a legacy web application, probably running on a legacy web server) A maintenance window may not be immediately available when patches are released Systems in development environments may be vulnerable during development and testing phases
