Mindful Security

Recently, I was invited to participate in a podcast on the topic of mindfulness. A friend and former editor of mine thought it would be helpful to discuss how the practice could potentially help stressed-out and oversubscribed IT professionals. I’ve actually had a meditation practice on and off for the last eight years and sometimes it seems like it’s the only thing keeping me sane. Especially in the high-pressure realm of information security. While I’m not an expert on meditation, I’ve spent a considerable amount of time studying and trying to understand its impact. Hopefully, people will find the information useful as an alternative method of reducing the inevitable stress and anxiety we’re all feeling in this industry lately.

One thought on “Mindful Security

  1. I don’t think that many IT pros give mindfulness enough credit. It is not only the actual job responsibility stress that gets to them but dealing with the varying emotional client states on an everyday basis. Even a few minutes a day can lead to lower stress levels and hopefully improved engagement levels.
