Not trying to be rude here. Phishing has become the most prevalent form of cyber-attack, and the reason for that is that IT WORKS! It works because most people are very trusting and easily convinced, and are clicking on links and opening attachments without much concern. It also works because most people have not been trained how to recognize a potential phishing message, and how to verify if the email is legitimate or a phishing scam.
Maybe the solution is to phish your own staff in order to see what happens. The bad guys sure are. They are phishing your staff every day, many times per day. The good news is that a company called Duo Insight is offering a way to run phishing exploits against your staff as part of your cybersecurity awareness training program. The best part is that it is free.
A quick look at the website makes it seem pretty straightforward to set up and account and get a phishing test created and ready to run. I haven’t had an opportunity to use this tool yet, but I am looking forward to giving it a try. I’ll be sure to circle back around and let you know how it worked.Share
