“Stress Management and avoiding burnout for
Cyber-Professionals

By 

Trung Tran

Amplio helps companies retain talent by helping them to avoid burnout. According to the World Health Organization: “Burn-out results from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed. It is characterized by three dimensions: feelings of exhaustion; increased mental apathy towards one’s job; and lack of confidence about your abilities. Burned out employees are 63% more likely to take a sick day, 2.6x more likely to be actively seeking a different job, and 13% less confident in their performance. Working with the DoD’s elite cyber units taught us what it takes for a cyber operator to stay ready in a field where a single error could mean putting the nation at risk. Living under such enormous stress is mentally taxing and can have a large physical impact. Avoiding burnout means understanding your current state and knowing how to manage your chronic stress. Ensuring that you can respond when the nation needs you.

Mr. Trung Tran is a former DARPA as a program manager in the Microsystems Technology Office in October 2015- August 2017.
