Criminals use phishing to install malicious software on your computer, to steal your log in credentials and/or to steal money via several social engineering techniques. In an e-mail or other communication (Whatsapp is becoming increasingly popular), you are usually asked to click on a link, enter your password on a fake website or to open an attachment. The communication is made to look as though it comes from a trusted sender.
Employees are the frontline troops that come into contact with personal data. Creating a company-wide security awareness program goes a long way in protecting your company’s data. To ensure an effective awareness campaign, employees need to be engaged. Training should cover best practices, but you shouldn’t stop there. Simulations ensure that your employees know how to apply these best practices and allow you to measure and follow-up the awareness program.
