You Don't Have to Be Crazy to Work Here: An honest talk about mental health

Cybersecurity professionals spend most of their day focused on the health and wellbeing of the environments in their care. However, the cost of reducing risk and keeping our networks safe often comes at the price of our professionals' mental health. Many InfoSec professionals burn out, suffer from anxiety and depression, and turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms, which further exacerbate underlying psychological and physical health issues.

This talk will alleviate the stigma around mental health and stress the importance of open and frank dialogs about this critical issue impacting our community. I will share my journey, reverse engineer the stigma of mental health in business, and look at ways to hack mental health in productive and meaningful ways.
