Phishing awareness training is an essential element to a robust email security program and is a must for companies who want to address email security seriously.
Several Osterman Research surveys have found that many users do not receive sufficiently frequent training with regard to security issues.
Creating a contextually relevant and effective phishing awareness campaign can be time-consuming for administrators. They are tasked with choosing relevant content for their industry and generating original ideas and examples that go beyond the rote, oft-repeated ones.
Most phishing trainings only offer prefabricated or one-size-fits-all training templates rather than real-world simulations that are timely and targeted to your organization’s specific employees and goals.
Conversely, administrators with access to a video and content libraries may have too much content to sort through to efficiently and effectively create a campaign. Admins need access to quality, timely resources, yet they are often inundated with options.
Many companies stop at a basic training for employees that doesn’t provide advanced phishing protection education to help employees identify and mitigate more complex threats, such as socially engineered attacks and business email compromise (BEC)
Even with adequate training, researchers at the USINEX SOUPs conference found many employees forget the lessons after 6 months. This means many employees lack the ability to identify and report sophisticated threats, leaving your company at risk.
