Phishing Awareness Training - Be Prepared

Phishing Awareness Training Overview

What is Phishing?

Email is a valuable business tool, but the rise of phishing emails puts your business at risk. Phishing awareness training helps you and your employees better prepare for what to look for in those emails.

Phishing is a technique used by cybercriminals using emails that look genuine but contain malicious links. When the email user innocently clicks on a link, the criminal can launch an attack on the user’s system and or the IT systems they are connected to.

How big is the risk from phishing?

The risk of harm from a phishing attack has never been greater. Phishing is the hacker’s favourite method to get around IT security defences.

The facts are:

  • In 2020, 60% of businesses suffered a ransomware phishing attack
  • 30% of businesses attacked by ransomware lose all their data
  • The average business downtime after an attack is 6 days
  • Over 90,000 new phishing campaigns are launched every month 
  • 50% of all cyber-attacks are targeted at small to medium businesses

Employee mistakes cause nearly 90% of all data security breaches; that’s why phishing email awareness training is an essential part of any business’s cybersecurity plan.

The impact of a successful phishing attack on your business could be disastrous:

  • Your business could be crippled for days or even weeks
  • Your customer and employee data could be lost forever or sold
  • Your identity or security could be compromised
  • And, in a worst-case scenario, you have to begin again from scratch
