Bait a hook and you can lure fish. Cybercrims bait an email (or other message) and lure humans. The first we call fishing. The second, phishing.
The outcomes are usually not good for either of the intended targets. Fortunately, unlike most fish, humans can be trained to recognise the lures and change their behaviour.
Phriendly Phishing’s phishing awareness training and simulations can help your staff:
Understand what phishing is, phishing tactics, and the impact a successful phishing attack can have on them and your business
Build and apply procedural memory so they know how to identify and avoid a phishing lure, but also how to react if they get hooked
Sharpen their online intuition and reflexes
Boost their peers’, friends’ and families’ phishing awareness
Phishing is a human-to-human con game. No technological barrier will ever provide a fail-safe solution that prevents phishing attacks. A busy, distracted employee can make a single click to resolve something that they believe is urgent.
That single click could lock up your system, install a virus or harvest sensitive data. The potential damage does not just run to direct costs, which could potentially be in the region of hundreds of millions of dollars. There’s also the likely damage to your reputation, or future damages through theft of intellectual property or personal data.
Research shows that developing and building skills that staff need to fend off phishing attacks requires a staged training process, not a one-off lecture. That’s why Phriendly Phishing offers our most popular S.C.A.M (Sender, Content, Action, Management) programs across 3 modules. We also have an optional add-on module that helps your employees’ friends and families benefit from phishing training too. And with memorable, enjoyable and engaging content, your employees steer clear of the ‘security fatigue’ effect.
