In 2021, data breaches soared past 2020 levels. This year, it’s expected to be worse. The odds are stacked against this poor guy (and you) now – but a unified extended detection and response (XDR) and SIEM restacks them in your favor.

Take a few minutes to check out this CISO’s day, and you’ll see how.

Go to this resource-rich page for smart, fast information, and a few minutes of fun too. Don’t miss it.

Still here on this page reading? Fine, let’s talk about you.

Most CISOs like adrenaline, but c’mon

Cybersecurity isn’t for the fragile foam flowers among us, people who require shade and soft breezes. A little chaos is fun. Adrenaline and cortisol? They give you heightened physical and mental capacity. But it becomes problematic when it doesn’t stop, when you don’t remember your last 40-hour week, or when weekends and holidays are wrecked.

Work-life balance programs are funny, right?

A lot of your co-workers may be happy, but life in the SOC is its own thing. CISOs average about two years in their jobs. And 40% admit job stress has affected their relationships with their partners and/or children.

Many of your peers agree: Unified SIEM and XDR changes everything

A whopping 88% of Rapid7 customers say their detection and response has improved since they started using InsightIDR. And 93% say our unified SIEM and XDR has helped them level up and advance security programs.

You have the power to change your day. See how this guy did.
