Description

Course overview


The Phishing Staff Awareness course

Phishing and ransomware attacks are becoming more popular and sophisticated, and the volume is rapidly increasing. One of the reasons behind this incredible growth is the lack of basic knowledge about these threats: more than three quarters (76%) of UK office workers don’t know what ransomware is and 36% can’t confidently define a phishing attack, according to an ISACA survey.

No matter how many technological defences are in place, no email filtering method is 100% successful, so it’s often left to the user to decide whether or not to open a phishing email or click a malicious link. It is here that phishing awareness training can make the vital difference.


Course objective

This course will help you and your team understand how phishing attacks work, the tactics that cyber criminals employ, and how to spot and avoid a phishing campaign.

Target audience

This course is aimed at all employees who use the Internet or email as a means of conducting business. The course content is not technical.
