Security Awareness Training: Keepin’ Phish out of Water

When cybercriminals go phishing, they know exactly who they want to catch: employees. And unlike fishing, cyber criminals can hook as many employees as they want with just one phishing lure. Security Awareness Training: Keepin’ Phish out of Water

New phishing tactics

New phishing tactics (e.g. vendor email compromise) make it difficult for shiny, new technologies to consistently protect people. The only way to stay resilient? Invest in people. 

Including c-suite executives and IT professionals

When people -- including c-suite executives and IT professionals -- are properly trained in cybersecurity, they are able to identify red flags that technology hasn’t caught yet. THAT is raising awareness. 

Security report

According to a new Kaspersky security report, nearly 130 million phishing attacks were reported in the second half of 2019. Phishing is one of the more profitable ventures of cybercriminals. A single successful breach can yield millions of compromised records. These numbers are high and continue to increase for a reason: security cultures are simply not prepared. 

By changing the game in security awareness and training people with intuitive, effective solutions, you will help them identify phishing emails BEFORE they’re caught hook, line and sinker. 

Change the game with security awareness training

Changing the game means rocking the cultural boat with new training initiatives. As we like to say, this makes people simultaneously aware of their surroundings and uncomfortable enough to act quickly. After that, sustain your newfound awareness with more scalable initiatives with a focus on experiential learning. Awareness really only comes through experience. Said another way, a fish has to actually feel danger if it’s going to learn how to avoid getting hooked. 

Living Security's core business is to reduce the risk of cyber attack in companies. Through employee training with efficient methods that use gamified learning with unique and fun experiences, awareness is achieved.
