Technology Category: Security Awareness
Over 90% of targeted cyber-attacks involve phishing emails, making it the primary means by which advanced persistent threat (APT) attackers infiltrate target networks. Cybercriminals use social engineering techniques to lure employees to visit malicious web sites or download malicious attachments in order to gain access to the organization network and data assets, bypassing all traditional defence systems. Unfortunately, 40% of recipients of phishing emails open them, and 11% actually click on the malicious attachments.
Thus, simulated phishing attack training is essential for today’s enterprises, yielding up to a 37% return on investment, according to Ponemon. Employee awareness retention rates have been shown to nearly double 12 months after a simulation program is implemented. IronScales can help push the envelope, going beyond detection with crowd wisdom-based phishing training and mitigation solution. IronTraps™, which is an automatic mitigation response, is immediately executed when a phishing attack is reported by employees.
