Another Phishy Email

Our most popular video!  We’ve all received them in our inbox: those phishy e-mails that are almost credible enough to get you to click the link. Most are benign, but others are not so innocent. These phishing scams can download malware that tricks people into giving away sensitive company information … and can lead to lawsuits, fines, and embarrassing news stories.

Luckily, there’s a fairly simple solution to keeping employees from falling prey to phishing schemes. You need to reinforce the message in a creative way that is targeted, fun, and memorable, like this animation (Download it for free).

We call animations and videos like this “reinforcement.” They are intended to complement and extend the message of your security awareness and privacy awareness training programs by targeting the kinds of behaviors that have the biggest impact on the security of information within an organization. We’re of the mind that training plus reinforcement can lead to the positive behavior change that we’re all after in our compliance and data protection training efforts.
