PHISH FOOD FOR THOUGHT
If a phishing email came into your organisation today, how confident are you that it won’t get opened, clicked, or even worse data entered on a linked page?
All the fancy Artificial Intelligence (AI) and message filtering in the world simply cannot stop all phishing emails, which is why, over the last 12 months, 84 per cent of UK organisations reported a data breach following a phishing email attack. Over the same period, the average UK cost of a breach has risen 10% to nearly £3 million.
REMEMBER - NO ORGANISATION IS IMMUNE
What’s really important to remember about those breaches is that the public sector is not immune to reputational damage and, under the GDPR, financial prosecution by regulatory bodies such as the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
THE PERFECT STORM IS BREWING
We are seeing a sharp increase in volume and sophistication of phishing attacks so when this is combined with increased public sector obligations surrounding data security, and an ever reducing budget, it becomes obvious it’s only a matter of time before a large and devastating cyber catastrophe occurs, just like the WannaCry outbreak within the NHS.
THE MESSAGE FROM THE UK’s NATIONAL CYBER SECURITY CENTRE IS CLEAR
To properly manage and mitigate cyber risk you need to address all three sides of the information security triangle: PEOPLE, PROCESS and TECHNOLOGY.
Phishing Tackle very effectively covers the PEOPLE aspect of this requirement with a price, and contract flexibility, to meet even the tightest budgets.
WHY IS SIMULATED PHISHING SO EFFECTIVE IN REDUCING RISK?
Painstaking research and development goes into creating and maintaining amazingly realistic up-to-date simulated phishing emails which are sent to your colleagues, all with the aim of educating your end-users in what to look out for in a phishing email. When coupled with our incredible landing and login pages, it really does make for a very realistic experience – just like the bad guys!
We then capture and report all the statistics you need to identify and educate those click-prone users who are putting your department and organisation at risk.
This is then automatically followed by computer-based punchy and engaging training to raise awareness, educate your colleagues and satisfy compliance.
WELCOME TO THE DARK SIDE
A staggering 59 percent of people reuse the same password for their online presence so it’s not surprising data breaches are occurring so often. Using our built-in automatic Breach Intelligence feature, the platform can notify your users of a credential leak as soon as it’s reported and, automatically, provide all the training required to ensure their accounts are not further compromised.
It’s critically important to regularly phish and train your users so you know when and whom to educate, because all it takes is a single click to compromise your whole organisation.
YOUR COLLEAGUES ARE YOUR FIRST, AND LAST LINE OF DEFENCE
Give them the Phishing Tackle training and education they need so they can play their important part in the fight against cyber-crimes, meet compliance obligations and reduce your cyber risk.
