Cybersecurity Awareness Month may officially be over, but that doesn’t mean that you should ease up on your awareness activities. Organizations that prioritize security awareness are less likely to fall victim to the 13 email threat types. Regular phishing simulations and education exercises are both effective activities that are proven to reduce user click-rate and keep successful email attacks to a minimum.
Here’s some of the content that we created this month for you to use and share! We encourage you to reference these assets regularly (even when it’s not October) to make sure you continue to do your part all year long.
- One-page email threat spotting sheets for identifying all 13 email threat types
- Email incident remediation checklist to help you get organized and prepare for efficient remediation of email threats
- An interview with security awareness expert Dennis Dillman VP of Product Management, Barracuda PhishLine. Visit Barracuda’s LinkedIn page on Thursday, October 29 at 10 a.m. PDT/1 p.m. EDT/5 p.m. GMT to watch the livestream.
Ongoing security awareness training
