Recognizing that many cyber security professionals – our very defenders – are themselves under sustained and increasing stress, we set about providing direct support to restore and rebuild emotional and cognitive health and alleviate suffering.
It’s not just cyber professionals we want to help. It’s their clients and those who suffer as victims of attacks, their staff, anyone in the cyber community who may be feeling a little overwhelmed.
As cyber professionals ourselves, we understand first hand the situation our colleagues, clients and customers find themselves in. We provide resources and support to lift our peers back into mental wellness and thereby strengthen cybersecurity generally.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 7 February 2024
Cybermindz.org, a not-for-profit pioneer in mental health solutions for cybersecurity professionals, today announced the launch of its revolutionary 12-month program, CISO Support™, specifically tailored for Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and cyber leaders confronting the daily risk of burnout.
“In what has become a war of attrition between global threat actors and cyber defenders, this is one battle we can’t afford to lose.”
Cybermindz Founder, Peter Coroneos More
The cybersecurity world is relentless, and mental resilience is not a one-time achievement. It's a continuous journey. SteadyShields™ goes beyond temporary fixes. So while wellness apps and ‘mental health days’ have their place, we chose a different path.
We decided to build a comprehensive, human-delivered program, providing peer-informed and mentored support over an entire year. Our programs are both preventive and restorative, aiming to create psychologically safe workplaces.
We believe in not just fulfilling the legal duty of care, but also catering to the protective instincts of compassionate leaders for their teams. More
Sydney, Australia 1 February 2024 – Cybermindz today announced the launch of a pioneering initiative designed to support the psychological well-being of cybersecurity teams following major cyber breaches.
Cyber incidents are not just a threat to data and systems, but can also have a profound psychological impact on the teams tasked with defending against them.
Recognising this, the Cybermindz RapidReset™ program offers a specialised post-cyber breach trauma recovery resource for critical cyber teams. More
We brought together over 100 cyber leaders and practitioners as we explored a way forward bringing relief to embattled cyber warriors and stemming the loss of critical skills. The post-event video (coming soon) showcases the experiences of experts in the field and includes a practical demonstration of the iRest protocol. We thank our founding partners, speakers and NCSC head Lindy Cameron CB OBE for their support.
An inspirational start to our US entry
