Phishing remains the single biggest threat to information security. Phishing occurs when an attacker sends an email crafted to look like a credible message from someone trusted, such as a boss, colleague or even an email provider like Google. More than 90% of reported data breaches and security incidents involve a successful phishing attack. Attackers relentlessly target organizations with spam, phishing and advanced socially engineered tests. Attacks have shown record growth in recent years and a solid security awareness program is an integral part of any defense-in-depth strategy. Over 40% of IT professionals report phishing attacks at least daily. Your end users are often an easy target and the weakest link in your cyber defenses.
Attackers rely on phishing as a primary strategy because it continues to be both effective and efficient, as users remain the most vulnerable attack vector
. Phishing tests for your employees will enable your employees to make better decisions and repel phishing threats. When you combine phishing awareness with sending test phishing emails
, people learn to recognize and respond to spoofed emails. The best way to prevent phishing incidents is to educate your workforce on the common tactics used by phishing attackers. Sending test phishing emails is the proper solution for every business or organization.
Running an effective phishing test at work can be the difference between an employee who clicks on malicious links or attachments and one who reports them
