Real Life Stories
Deep Fake Job Scam
"I never expected that my job search would lead me into the heart of a dark and sinister world. It all started innocently enough when I sent out my resume to various companies hoping to land an entry-level position in the I.T. Industry. Everything changed when I stumbled upon a job opening. That seemed too good to be true. Little did I know it was a trap set up by cybercriminals. These master manipulators took my CV and twisted it."
Important training for HR departments and employees alike on this latest trend of cybercrime using deep fake technology.

New Phishing Template Series!
We've launched a new monthly series that will highlight different types of phishing emails that breaks down scenarios they may be used for and when to consider them. These are in addition to the full library of phishing templates we provide in our Wizer Boost Phishing Simulation.
February's highlights covered phishing emails such as the Alert Notification, Curiosity Click, Time Crunch, Panic Button, and Performance Review. Use these to add to your own phishing simulations to train employees or use them as examples in your employee educational content.
How to Get Hacked By Accidentally Copy-Pasting Malicious CodeThis is why you should NEVER copy-paste commands directly into your terminal. Ask any developer or Admin if they have ever copied a command line or code snippet from the web. The answer would probably be YES. You would assume that what you copied is what you paste, right? Well, nope!
Empower Employees Against Phishing Panel
Our latest Wizer panel explored what can be done to reduce the risk of phishing attacks from different perspectives from IronVest's Michael Snape, Dolus Advisors Dr. Alexander Stein, Associate Director of Information Security Amy Dearwester and Wizer's own Gabriel Friedlander.
These experts represented the people, process, and technology to provide some great insights into phishing attacks and prevention.
