EDUCATE EMPLOYEES ON CYBERSECURITY AWARENESS & GIVE THEM TOOLS TO LOWER THE RISK OF REAL PHISHING THREATS
It’s well known that most breaches begin as phishing emails. But no matter how many times you caution employees, someone still clicks. And even when employees think emails are suspicious, they may not have the right tools to report them to your SOC. If your security compliance training is just meant to check a box, you’re not lowering the risks of real phishing threats.Awareness Resources Center
Threat actors have become smarter. They use conversational or spoofed emails from a trusted source to gain an employee’s trust and then deliver malicious payloads—or lure them into a costly financial transaction.
Since email gateways aren’t fully effective in stopping phishing emails, you need to condition employees to resist them. Cofense PhishMe™ does this by simulating phishing scenarios. Employees learn to detect all types of phishing threats, from basic scenarios to more nuanced tactics, and reduce susceptibility by up to 95%.
Too often, awareness programs only seek to satisfy compliance requirements. Their mainstay: computer-based training (CBTs). But watching videos only proves that employees know how to click “Next” until they’re finished. It doesn’t really tell you if they can apply what they learn and identify phishing emails.
Cybersecurity awareness must evolve beyond annual training. After all, your adversaries are dynamic, creative humans. Continuously trained employees don’t just check a box—they provide front-line human intelligence to your security teams. In addition to Cofense PhishMe’s immersive approach to training, we offer FREE CBTs to help you stay compliant.
Identifying a phishing email doesn’t stop an attack. You need to report it to your SOC/IR analysts, so they can analyze, respond, and mitigate any threat. Without an easy way to report potential phishes, you’re asking employees to forward emails as an attachment to the SOC. Some will, some won’t. This slows response and even enables breaches.
During a phishing attack, early detection matters. It’s crucial to give employees a simple tool to report phishing. By streamlining the process—one click is all it takes—Cofense Reporter™ turns employees into a layer of phishing defense. They click on a button, the email leaves their inbox, and your security team investigates further.
Our cybersecurity awareness training modules are relevant to every business, whether you operate within a regulated industry or not. They include topics related to today’s biggest cybersecurity threats— malware, ransomware, social networking, safe surfing, phishing, and more—as well as commonly overlooked threats such as password protection, device security, and insider threats.
For employees in certain departments, we’ve built modules relating to business email compromise, cloud computing, and environmental security. Every business that gathers, stores or processes data relating to EU residents should review our module about the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
