Here’s How to Make Every Month Security Awareness Month

It’s fitting that National Security Awareness Month ends on Halloween. It’s the time to contemplate scary things, whether ghouls, men in lederhosen stumbling about with steins or the real deal, phishing emails loaded with ransomware.

Of course, PhishMe® prefers to go beyond awareness to behavioral conditioning, so that folks already aware of threats like phishing can help combat them. But there’s value in simply raising awareness.

One way we do our part: free resources that help you keep security on people’s radars all year long. More on those in a moment.

Another way: PhishMe Submerge 2017, our second annual User Conference and Phishing Defense Summit, Nov. 29 – Dec. 1, Gaylord Hotel, Washington National Harbor. Attend and save $100 on your registration, but hurry—this savings vanishes with Halloween! Register now using discount code PMAWARE.

Free tools to help you fight phishing.

If you run a small business, PhishMe Free is for you. It lets you simulate phishing email campaigns to condition your employees to recognize and report the real thing. PhishMe Free mimics the real-life tactics phishing attackers use. It delivers measurable results via 12 phishing scenarios per year.

Also check out PhishMe CBFree, our library of computer-based learning. Using the latest eLearning techniques, each module takes roughly five minutes and some are available in multiple languages. Examples: Payment Data Compliance, covering credit cardholder data security, and Advanced Spear Phishing.

Beef up your security presentations.

PhishMe has new PowerPoint and infographic slides on security topics like business email compromise (BEC), spear phishing and encryption ransomware. They’re yours to use free.
