It is now well known that a large proportion of security breaches are caused by insiders being tricked into revealing sensitive information, or taking inappropriate action (eg invoice fraud ). But the scale is quite extraordinary: research suggests that as many as 91% of data breaches start with a “spear-phishing” email.
We recommend a three step process to manage the risks from this problem:
- Step 1: Undertake a baseline Phishing Security Test: to establish what proportion of your staff are currently “phish-prone”
- Step 2: Provide security awareness training – interactive, bite-sized, high-quality training which can be incorporated into the normal day’s work is effective and causes minimal disruption
- Step 3: Repeat the simulated phishing attacks: to measure the improvement in your “phish-prone” percentage, and target your training efforts where the risk is highest.
We have partnered with a leading provider of security awareness training and simulated phishing tests, meaning we can get you up and running with this in a very short time. We even offer a FREE Phishing Security Test so that you can get a better understanding of the scale of the problem in your own organisation.
