Security Awareness Training - Latest Findings

Posted by Ben Densham on Mar 14, 2014 2:37:55 PM

Some interesting and rather alarming findings from a recent survey around Security Awareness Training (SAT): source 1,000 people surveyed by One Poll for PhishMe.

  • 9% thought phishing was ‘a new social media tool'
  • Another 14% simply did not know what it is
  • 16% admitted being tricked by a phishing scam

As we know, it only takes one hit to be effective.

Regular training is the first line of defence where behaviour change and understanding is measured. Lack of knowledge, or knowledge without understanding, is not what security awareness training is about.
