With phishing as the weapon of choice for cyber criminals, phishing email training ensures employees learn how to recognize and also prevent a phishing attack.
Phishing attacks can have dire consequences for both organizations and individuals. These attacks can also regularly result in compromised business information, breached networks and financial loss. How to avoid phishing has become an even more critical skill that every employee must master for the safety of the entire organization.
The Anti-Phishing Essentials course teaches users about phishing and also social engineering threats through a scenario-based format. This includes gamification elements to engage and also challenge users as they build their understanding of these attacks and how to handle them. In this highly interactive phishing email training experience, learners are taught to recognize common types of phishing and social engineering attacks and even more importantly choose the safest course of action. Individual learners follow different paths through the instruction based on their responses. As they progress, they build their awareness of phishing tactics. They also test their ability to identify threats and hone their competencies in how to avoid phishing.
When combined with our phishing testing tool, users can also be tested with convincing simulated attack emails. If they click on any email links, they can be automatically enrolled in reinforcement training and tested again.
