7 Signs of Infosec's Groundhog Day Syndrome

Irritations that plague security pros day in and day out.
1/7

Sometimes working in information security can make people feel a little bit like Sisyphus. Or, at least like Bill Murray in the movie "Groundhog Day."

You wake up and the same types of weaknesses in your people and technology are being attacked by the same criminals day in and day out. Meanwhile, many security leaders keep having the same conversations with their bosses and colleagues without moving the needle forward with meaningful protections.

We talked to experts across the industry about the phenomenon and got their opinions on the most common irritating things that just won't go away in cybersecurity.  The lesson of their observation? Security leaders need to keep in mind that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results.
