  • Welcome to my world: Everyone is burned out. That's becoming a security nightmare. (ZDNet)

    I started working from home back in 2010, when long hours and frequent illness made it impossible for me to keep up with the demands of my job if I had to commute every day. (Later that year I was diagnosed with celiac disease and the illness mostly went away, to be replaced with being very annoying in restaurants.)

    Anyway, the first thing that happens when you start working from home is that you don't have to go in to the office.

    The second thing that happens is that you realise you can now never leave the office.
    The research suggests that 84% of security professionals are feeling burned out, compared with 80% of other workers.
    That's not a big difference, but if only one in six IT security specialists are actually functional - less than that, because a lot of the ones who aren't burned out will be idiots - we're basically doomed.

    All of us, not just QNAP and Ubiquiti.

1 "USN journal is always enabled on the C: disk."

Microsoft's retarded naming conventions aside, this is a great argument for a tiny OS drive and a physically separate drive for all the important stuff.  Now, me on linux, I put the boot OS on one disk, with all the normal craps, and a second physical disk with a gentoo chroot (because I'm hinky) that replicates all the important stuff ([/usr]/home mostly).

2 With my new laptops, I specifically looked for models with dual M.2 slots.  Not because I knew about this specific issue, but because of this general class of problem.

3 Burnout - the team lead at the last place I worked at, before retiring, said I had to submit email notice IN ADVANCE if I was going to leave the building for a lunch at any of the nearby restaurants.  There were several you could go to, order & eat, and get back to work within an hour. I could have worked there a few more years, but I was getting very tired of the micromanagement and harassment. Later heard that said team lead, after everyone in IT was required to work from home to avoid spreading COVID, got so frustrated from not having people around to harrass,  quit.
