Alert fatigue occurs when a high volume of alerts overwhelms cybersecurity, making them incapable of handling real security threats.

Sometimes cybersecurity system creates many notifications to alert the security teams about potential dangers like suspicious network activity, malware infections or unauthorized access attempts. Too many notifications can lead to exhaustion, and the security team may struggle to investigate each alert.

A restless barrage of alerts can desensitize security teams, causing them to disregard the critical ones. Also, it becomes challenging to differentiate between actual threats and false positives or low-risk incidents.
