    The demands on infosec and technology professionals often seem overwhelming, this talk discusses ways to maximize your ability to thrive in the high-stress, high-demand environment of technology and security.

    Building on lessons learned from the ongoing stress and burnout research project, this talk looks at the other side, how people avoid getting into trouble and sustain high efficiency and satisfaction. Topics range from defining issues and challenges, to identifying potential trouble, to day-to-day advice for being content and productive. (This is Jack here, don’t push your luck and ask for “happy”, be content with “content”).

    Audience participation and engagement is highly encouraged in this session.
