Protect Your Business from Phishing Attacks

Mar 28, 2018


Many companies suffer from phishing attacks where employees are targeted with fraudulent emails. Fraudsters may try to uncover user’s passwords or even get you to make payments to them.

Despite having software to uncover fraudulent emails, quite often it comes down to user training. We all know that if we make a payment we should make sure that the email is genuine, check with managers and make sure we have the safe lock and look out for the ‘s’ in https:

So how can you train your users? Why not pretend to be a fraudster and send them some emails. This is a safe environment to see how aware your employees are. This can be a great way of collecting data and seeing if you should introduce something more than username and password. 

I recommend using KnowBe4's website: https://www.knowbe4.com. It is free for 100 users and has templates that you can use. A highly effective way to train your employees and keep your business safe.
