In just one year 83% of people received phishing emails and 64% of businesses experience phishing attacks. For those receiving phishing emails it can be difficult to determine if it is real or a fake as nearly half of all hackers choose to exploit human nature rather than the tech being used. 72% of employees have reported that preventing and protecting their emails from attacks has become more difficult in the last four years. While annual training is helpful it is not enough to help keep employees safe from these attacks. Employees are vital to preventing them but learning how best to use them to help is important. People often learn best through practice and reinforcement so while training reduced phishing susceptibility giving victims counseling from a manager rather than negative feedback is also very helpful. Getting everyone involved in protecting your company and encouraging them for their effectiveness can decrease security breaches. Find out more here.
