How big of a problem are false positives for you?

Hey guys – I’m an intern at a cybersecurity company and my boss has me doing some research so I was hoping I could get some feedback. We recently wrote this blog on false positives and how it’s a major issue in the industry:

I’m trying to find out how major of an issue this is for those working in cybersecurity. We’ve heard from dozens of people how much of a problem this is and how much it effects people in their every day jobs but I wanted to ask the r/netseccommunity directly. Are false positive security alerts an issue for you? If so how much does it affect you in your job?

Thanks so much in advance for any feedback you can provide!
