DATA SECURITY AWARENESS 
PHISHING TRAINING

Phishers trick people into divulging confidential information or into performing actions that enable unauthorized access into a computer network.

The best way to combat phishing is through information security awareness training.  People need to be educated about how not to be fooled.  Everyone in the workforce needs to be aware of the kinds of tricks fraudsters use and how to spot suspicious emails, attachments, links, or phone calls.  All it takes is one person to make one wrong click . . . and there’s a data breach!  The more people who are cautious and wise, the lower the risk.

Professor Daniel Solove brings his 15+ years of teaching experience to his phishing training.  He understands that great information security awareness training must make people care and remember.  The material must be explained clearly, understandably, and concretely.  Our phishing training, as well as all of our other information security awareness training courses, use interactivity, humor, and vivid imagery to engage people and make the lessons stick.

Our information security awareness training modules are highly customizable.  We have security training modules of many different lengths and styles.   We have 100+ topics on privacy and security.

For phishing training, we have at least 10 courses with extensive phishing content.  Here are a few of our courses that focus exclusively or heavily on phishing:

The Ransomware Attack

 

Phishing Training
This short program (~5 minutes) is a highly interactive vignette about malware.   Ransomware is one of the most pernicious forms of malware — it works by encrypting a user’s files and demanding a ransom payment to decrypt the files.  Although this vignette involves ransomware, the lessons it teaches apply broadly to all malware.  The program focuses on how to avoid having malware installed on one’s computer and what to do (and not to do) if this ever happens.
