Follow the below rules to manage your social engineering threats:

  • Baseline testing – Perform baseline testing to assess the Phish- prone percentage of your users through a simulated phishing attack.
  • Train the users – Train the users with on- demand, interactive, engaging training to address common traps. Train the employees of your organization about spam, phishing, spear phishing, malware, ransomware and social engineering.
  • Phish the users – Perform simulated phishing attacks using templates representative of current events or threats.
