Two thirds of IT leaders believe phishing attacks are their number one Cyber Security threat, and according to Varonis 65% of all Cyber criminals use phishing as their primary source of infiltrating and infecting an organisation. User education and awareness in Cyber Security is critical because despite a year on year reduction in phishing emails per 1000 sent, 62% of businesses experienced phishing and social engineering attacks in 2019 which makes it no surprise that one third of all successful breaches are by way of phishing attacks (Verizon).

Phishing attacks are a clear source of why Cyber Security incidents are now a daily occurrence and struggle for organisations to deal with. User education and awareness services are one of the most, if not the most, cost-effective methods for improving your organisation’s Cyber threat defences and significantly reducing your risk and the potential success of a business-impacting Cyber breach.

Whilst phishing attacks by volume are in decline, the reasoning behind this decline is because Cyber criminals are choosing quality over quantity. They are actively investing their time in creating significantly more sophisticated, life like and realistic attacks, to enhance their chances of fooling the recipient and improving their success rate for Cyber breaches.

Victims of cyber attacks are found in all departments across all levels of the hierarchy, and phishing attacks do not discriminate – they will take all opportunities to breach your defences. Equally, phishing emails are typically successful with the user unknowingly, or inadvertently compromising your security, opening the door to a would-be attacker. This service empowers your user base to spot a potential phishing attack, therefore playing a critical role in your organisation’s security.

What should you be asking?

Security policy and technologies must enable users to be productive, but they must also be secure. One simple employee error like clicking a rogue link can result in a breach of security, financial loss, significant cost and reputational damage. A simple, effective, frequent and engaging user security awareness programme will help prevent such an occurrence. By supporting your organisations policy and technical measures, user education and awareness will deliver security knowledge and contribute towards a security conscious culture within your organisation.

Providing security education during new employee inductions supported by annual refreshers, is an approach no longer fit for purpose, and some don’t even do that. Users continue to click harmful links, enter credentials and open malicious attachments. The most effective approach to Cyber Security education is providing sharp, focused and relevant information to your users frequently.

Littlefish’s user security education and awareness provides great content directly to your users, on a monthly basis, through engaging design, content that brings the latest threats to life. Adaptable to focus on industry-specific threats or align with your internal security policies, this holistic service provides a managed and measurable ongoing awareness programme, transforming your users from a potential weakness into your most effective threat detection.

“Do you want to avoid phishing email compromises causing untold business impact?”

“Are you making employee Cyber awareness a priority as a very low cost, high risk mitigation solution?”
