Do you know who the biggest threat to your organization is?

By: Mike Molloy, Senior Associate - IT Risk

Do you know who the biggest threat to your organization is?

You! Last year spear-phishing attacks against employees rose 55%.  The number of attacks against small businesses has been rising steadily over the last five years.  Traditionally, organizations have utilized security awareness trainings, often to appease compliance and regulatory requirements. These are limited in their effectiveness as they are passive in nature and often taken just once per year.

So what can companies do to help protect their employees from the barrage of emails attempting to lure them to malicious sites or to open attachments infected with malware? Attack your own employees!  Performing a simulated phishing attack exercise lets you see firsthand how susceptible your company is to phishing attacks.

If you’d like to learn more about how your company can obtain an independent security assessment, including a custom tailored spear-phishing simulation contact the experts at Clearview Group.
