Guardian Digital EnGarde Cloud Email Security Alleviates Email Security Management Stress for Businesses

March 30, 2023 -- N.J. Guardian Digital, the open source email security solutions company, addresses CISOs fatigue, burnout, and chronic email security stress with EnGarde Cloud Email Security protection. Accompanied with never-ending support that extends limited IT resources, we improve efficacy, maximize productivity, and provide invaluable peace of mind.

Workplace stress is taking its toll on cybersecurity professionals, leading to insecure behavior within organizations challenged by the demands of today’s businesses struggling to protect against the increasing threat landscape.

Recent security research reveals that CISOs spend an average of over 20 hours per week analyzing security data, investigating potential threats, prioritizing responses, and coordinating with IT and other teams to mitigate risks. CISOs also spend an average of more than 12 hours per week on email-related tasks, which could include managing Microsoft 365 email.

Deepti Gopal, Director Analyst, Gartner said, “Cybersecurity professionals are facing unsustainable levels of stress… CISOs are on the defense, with the only possible outcomes that they don’t get hacked or they do. The psychological impact of this directly affects decision quality and the performance of cybersecurity leaders and their teams.”

It is crucial for CISOs to prioritize security and risk management in their roles and stay up-to-date on emerging threats and vulnerabilities, evaluate the potential impact of these risks, and develop strategies to mitigate them. Effective risk management requires collaboration across departments and clear communication with executive leadership to ensure that resources are appropriately distributed. By prioritizing security and risk management, CISOs can help protect their organization’s valuable assets and maintain their reputation.

Instead, organizations should be focused on solutions that simplify administration overhead, institute processes that place their security teams in a position to protect rather than react, and implement a more modern approach to email security that will reduce workplace stress. CISOs can improve their productivity by selecting a cloud-based email security management platform that offers comprehensive security features and streamlines email management. Cloud-based platforms allow CISOs to manage their email security from a single interface and reduce the need to log in and use multiple interfaces. This makes email management easier and allows for faster monitoring and response to possible threats. Cloud email security management provides real-time analytics, reporting, and allows CISOs to quickly identify and resolve issues. Automating repetitive tasks like email filtering or threat detection frees CISOs to concentrate on more important security issues.
