Minimize the impact of day-to-day phishing attacks

The number of emails containing malicious URLs increased by nearly 600% in the third quarter of 2017 and by 2,200% over the year before that, according to Proofpoint’s 2017 Q3 Threat Report.

Malicious links download malware or they are the first step in a damaging breach. Your staff are in the front line: Give them the awareness training they need.

Phishing attacks succeed because staff inadvertently click on malicious links. This course will alert your employees to the risks of clicking on malicious links that can harm your organization and will enable them to be able to identify a phishing scam and respond accordingly.
