How Phishable Are Your Employees?




Hacks and breaches of businesses, large and small, seems to be a common occurrence these days

Despite all of the expensive and complex security that an IT department sets up, it can all be bypassed very simply by anyone in the company.

Just about every compromise begins with an email or social media phishing campaign that appears to be a legit message from someone in your own company.

It’s not hard to figure out who the most important people in just about any company is and pretend to be them via email.

With this in mind, being extremely paranoid about messages from others in your organization with urgent or strange requests is critical. 

For those in charge of managing this risk, there are tools available to test your employees as websites such as https://KnowBe4.com

You can use their phishing test platform on up to 100 employees to see how easy it is to get them to fall for a clever message.

You can ask to use the tool by filling out the request form at:
