Friday 4 October 11:00 - 11:30, Red room
Jamie Tomasello (Duo Security)
In information security, we are focused on ensuring confidentiality, integrity, and availability of our data and systems. We often monitor systems and services health for over utilization, packet loss and swapping, but we do not do the equivalent for people. When we attempt to measure people, we expect that they operate at full capacity all the time, hitting KPIs without considering the personal cost. Do we blame the server when it's overloaded or has too many services running on it, competing for the same resources? No. We don't give the engineers and analysts maintaining our infrastructure and products the same level of consideration that we give our critical systems. This session will propose ways to monitor people availability, ensure psychological safety, and proactively avoid burnout.
