Prevent phishing by learning how to strengthen your human firewall with a customized phishing simulation
Phishing simulations are a powerful tool to increase employees’ cyber security awareness for all kinds of phishing scams. This white
- How to implement simulated phishing emails in your cyber security awareness training and measure the long-term results
- Why focusing on the human factor in your IT security can be a game changer for awareness retention
- Why positive reinforcement can support your employee’s learning curve
“Instead of classifying employees as a risk to an organization’s IT security, a phishing simulation should be driven by the opposite assumption: By being aware of security risks and by dealing with them adequately, humans can represent an additional, security-relevant barrier.”
How to implement best practices to spot phishing

Most encouraging learning techniques
Get insight into which learning techniques are tried and true for the phishing simulations to be most successful.
Because phishing continues to be the #1 most pervasive attack tactic used by cybercriminals...and organizations remain particularly vulnerable to them.
Not only can our phishing simulations be tailored to employee’s needs, but they are more effective that way too. This includes addressing the entire group as well as targeting specific recipients, e.g., using personal salutations.
A phishing simulation familiarizes users of different scenarios but is only effective as the learning content that responds to a user’s reactions. That is why our simulations are followed with helpful and snackable educational content to train with the bigger picture in mind.
Phishing simulations are only effective when they are continuous and randomized. This is based on habit research that suggests learning measures distributed over the long-term are more beneficial for changing behavior.
