The Art of Phishing

RCS Art of Phishing FAQ Pic

Phishing emails can cause a lot of havoc from infecting your company’s devices with vicious malware, swindling you out of a large sum of money, or even both at the same time! It’s important to be able to recognize any and all potential threats to your business, but it’s even more important that ALL of your employees are aware of how to spot dangers and not just yourself. You may be able to tell the difference between a legitimate email offer and a scam but one of your employees or coworkers may not! It only takes one person to click on the wrong link form the wrong email to put your entire organization at risk of becoming infected.

We’ve discussed in previous posts about a few of the telltale signs of potentially threatening emails such as poor grammar and spelling, an aggressive tone, the request for private information for accounts, and so on but sometimes it can be a lot more difficult to spot a phishing email then you anticipate. What if you or your employees just can’t tell? Or even more worrisome what if your employees and/or coworkers just don’t know what to look for and be skeptical about? That’s where we come in with our partner Sophos and their incredible Phish Threat product.

Phish Threat not only takes the time to train and educate your employees with interactive modules and realistic phishing examples, but it also keeps a report on everyone using the program. With this report, Phish Threat alerts you to how many people are actually completing the training, what the average pass score is, and how vulnerable you potentially are based on how everyone is performing and progressing in their training. Phish Threat also is constantly updating its content based upon the latest ransomware threats, as they are being found online.

You’re only as strong as your weakest link, and with RCS and our partner Sophos’ Phish Threat product we can ensure that you and all of your coworkers and employees have the proper training they need to stay safe while online and through email. Disaster prevention and recovery is just another part of what we do and provide for all clients, and should you have any questions about Phish Threat, other disaster prevention products, or want to start creating your disaster recovery plan then give us a call at 909 • 949 • 9159 and one of our certified technicians will give you a free consultation and get to work on helping you and your business!
