Latest Attack Trends: Why Employees get Hooked by Phishing Emails

Presented by

John ‘Lex’ Robinson, Principal Client Engagement Manager, PhishMe & John Washko, Product Manager, PhishMe

About this talk

Phishing (including spear phishing), persists as the #1 attack vector used by hackers today – and they continue to launch more sophisticated tactics to gain access to corporate networks and assets. But, did you know these alarming statistics? -87% of the employees who opened a phishing simulation email did so on the same day it was sent – which means organizations have little time to catch a targeted attack aimed at multiple employees -Behavioral conditioning decreased susceptible employees’ likelihood to respond to malicious email by 97% after just 4 simulations -The most effective phishing emails contain a business communication theme and subject line, such as “File from Scanner” or “Unauthorized Activity/Access” This webinar, based on PhishMe’s recently released Enterprise Phishing Susceptibility Report, will help you understand how complexity and context impact the phishing susceptibility of employees in an organization, and how a continuous security training program has proven to significantly change employee security behavior. This data was collected from our study conducted with 400+ customers across 23 industries by sending over 8 million phishing-simulation emails to more than 3.5 million employees.
