MediaPro Makes CSO Online List of Top Phish-Fighting Companies

On: May 27, 2016
CSO Online has ranked MediaPro as a key player in the fight against phishing attacks.

More than 30 percent of phishing emails are opened, but only three percent get reported to management or IT, according to Verizon’s 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR).

But when employees are trained on how to spot phishing emails, and then get tested with mock phishing emails, the percent who fall victim decreases with each round, writes Maria Korolov of CSO Online.

Korolov included MediaPro in her list of the top companies that are successfully helping enterprises fight phishing. She noted our training and reinforcement programs, as well as our Adaptive Phishing Simulator, which delivers a complete solution to assess, train, and test employee vigilance across an entire enterprise.

Steve Conrad, our founder and managing director, said, “Not all phishing campaigns are equal, nor should they be. You need to use a model that sends phishing messages of varying complexity and sophistication, and those are going to generate different kinds of results. Sending the same, or similar, messages to your end-users will show great results in a phishing report—your click-through rates will go down—but it will not accomplish your business goal.”
