Your Security Awareness Plan: Month 6

It’s Month 6 of our 2024 Cybersecurity Training Plan - your free Virtual Security Awareness Manager. We’re shifting our focus to phishing awareness training with a twist.

If you missed Month 1 packed with Annual Training and Monthly Video, you can view it here.

Level Up Your Phishing Sims & Training

Don't fall into the rut of mindless phishing simulations, instead give them new life with out-of-the-box thinking that will yield better engagement and learning across the team.

It's Month 6 in our walk through of our Annual Security Awareness Plan and we're focusing on leveling up our team's awareness on Advanced Phishing tactics. James Linton, former email prankster turned social engineering and phishing expert joins us to share his creative take on training and educating companies and their people.

We'll talk about some of the latest advanced phishing trends to watch for as well as explore new ways to approach phishing simulations including James' own BattlePhish approach. Catch the conversation below.

Be sure to follow James Linton to learn from his insights on LinkedIn.

Continuing with Phishing Simulations

Conduct a phishing simulation easily to assess your team's skills in recognizing and reporting threats. Our Phishing Simulation helps you evaluate how effectively your team can detect and respond to actual phishing attempts, offering a wide selection of over 100 templates to choose from.

You can send a one-time simulation or set up recurring ones. For a One-Time Phishing Simulation, select your templates and audience, then send. The Smart Campaign automates this process, sending recurring phishing emails based on your chosen frequency.

Here's how to start your Phishing Simulation:
