Send simple simulations to experienced users
Set a realistic goal
A phishing rate lower than 5% already helps avoid the greatest risks
Don't go for 0%: an unattainable goal causes a lack of motivation
Correctly follow up on phishing simulations
Train employees when they need it
Never punish employees who fall into the trap
Consistency and repetition
Carry out tests on a regular basis
Only one test a year achieves little

Recognising that you are vulnerable is the first step in recognising and mitigating risks. As a cybersecurity expert, I am not ashamed to say that I have clicked on a phishing email before.

To avoid disastrous scenarios, we need to learn to recognise patterns in order to build up a permanent vigilance. This can only be done by offering a continuous training program to our employees, one that is as agile as the growing cyber threat.

Why Phished?

Over 90% of all data breaches starts with a human error

Organisations invest many resources into setting up a state-of-the-art defense, yet they often neglect the biggest risk: their own employees. Any employee that doesn’t know how to effectively recognise cyberattacks is a potential zero-day vulnerability. By creating more cyber awareness amongst your employees, an offering phishing awareness training, your organisation is more secure.
