We had a moderately sophisticated phishing email slip through the other day. The message used our logos, brought our users to a page that was a clone of our email login page, and had spoofed the from address (and included the phone number and web link) of our Faculty/Staff Help Desk. We didn't have anyone fall for it though which is due in no small part to the training we've done.

“Companies such as Wombat Security Technologies are experts in the training delivery field, and they specifically provide a market leading solution for continuous security education that creates employee behavior change.
Select a training partner, like Wombat, that dedicates research time and money to identifying current and emerging threats that will be encountered and in delivering scalable solutions that make it easy for training program administrators to assess areas of user knowledge weakness and then target education programs to the subjects and people most at risk. This is a great way to get a quality program started, show a quick ROI, and then grow the program over time.”

We had more than 400,000 successful completions of Safer Web Browsing, Password Security, Email Security, and Smartphone Security training modules. More than 32,000 users completed the Smartphone Security training module in two weeks. This is amazing for non-mandatory training, we have now justified the cost of training with just those four modules! We are very happy with our investment.

By motivating employees to quickly respond and complete security awareness training means a company’s workforce is armed against the most current attacks. In addition, using automated phishing attacks enables companies to streamline operations, save money, and protect their organization at the same time.

After pairing our PhishGuru mock attacks and interactive training modules, a large public college in the Northeastern U.S. saw a significant reduction in malware and viruses, a 90% reduction in successful phishing attacks, significantly fewer support requests, an increase in the number of users reporting incidents and attacks, and a greater awareness of issues.
