Why traditional Anti-Phishing software and Training Doesn't Work.

If you missed our successful tech chat, not to worry you can watch the video here

As organisations make the decision to return to the office or continue to work from home, security teams are still challenged with the same concerns around protecting the end user, with a rapidly growing and evolving threat landscape. During our customer consultations, we have found that 2 common concerns are often raised throughout organisations:

  • Regardless of what Next Generation Anti Virus or Secure Email Gateway is in place, phishing emails are still making it through 
  • The unfortunate net effect of this is that links are being clicked that shouldn’t be -resulting in escalations, potential clean-ups and worse case successful ransomware attacks. 

With more organisations adopting a work from home policy, it is often reported that now between 4x to 10x the volume of phishing emails are making it through and ultimately being clicked! 

But how is this even possible when they all state that training is in place, and they all are using mail protection and filtering gateways?

We Ask Our Expert Panel - Why Traditional Anti-Phishing Software and Training doesnt Work

Our panel of digital risk experts will be discussing modern phishing attacks, why they are making it through current protection mechanisms and why phishing emails are being successfully executed even though training may already be in place.

We explore how these emails are bypassing current defences, how behaviour can have a positive or negative impact on phishing campaigns along with how company culture can play a key role. 

Understand how to better safeguard against phishing attacks from the user perspective. Learn how organisations can create a culture of cyber awareness within the workplace, home workspace and the hybrid environment which contually thrives.
