Posted by Gretel Egan on Jul 21, 2017 1:16:52 PM

We are excited to annouce the release of our new Securing Your Email – Fundamental anti-phishing training series. This latest addition to our library of more than 25 security awareness training modules targets fundamental cybersecurity best practices surrounding three key phishing threat vectors: malicious links, infected attachments, and requests for login credentials and other sensitive information.

The Securing Your Email – Fundamental series expands our already industry-leading anti-phishing employee training portfolio, and has been added as a featured option within our Anti-Phishing Training Suite. To enable targeted and timely security education, ThreatSim® customers can automatically auto-enroll employees in follow-up training assignments that match the type of phishing test sent to the end user (link-based, attachment-based, or data entry-based). As with the rest of our interactive training portfolio, this series directly addresses problematic behaviors to assist with end-user risk management.

Short on Security Awareness Training Staff? Try Our Managed Services.

Posted by Gretel Egan on Jul 13, 2017 12:42:05 PM

Even with healthy security budgets, infosec teams can find themselves short on resources. Countless studies and articles have noted that good IT talent is hard to find, which means that security teams are still having to do more with less. And even those organizations that are not experiencing a personnel crunch could still be feeling the pinch on the cybersecurity education side. After all, staff members who are highly skilled at managing technical resources often lack the experience and expertise — and interest — needed to develop and execute an effective employee security awareness training program.

If you are lacking resources or expertise, don’t kick the can down the road, and don’t settle for a marginal program that is unlikely to give you any return (on even a minimal investment). Instead, use our Managed Services for security awareness training to help you deliver a program that provides measurable results.
