NEW YORK (June 3, 2022) — NetCom Learning, a pioneer in business and IT training solutions, has launched an end-user cybersecurity awareness training and phishing simulation solution. The offering is designed to help organizations improve their security stance while reducing the risk of employee data loss by educating users on phishing attacks and other threats. It also includes a phishing simulation tool that helps organizations test employees’ ability to recognize and report phishing attempts.
83% of organizations experienced phishing attacks in 2021, and an additional six billion attacks are expected to occur in 2022. Nowadays, phishing emails are more common than ever, and threat actors are becoming more malicious. In such a scenario, it is imperative for businesses to take extra measures to avoid phishing attacks and cut costs associated with them.
To address this grave issue, NetCom Learning has curated a self-paced cybersecurity awareness training and phishing simulation for organizations that need to train their employees on how to avoid being phished by malicious actors. The solution provides simulated phishing emails that look like real messages, teaching end-users to respond to the email threats in real-life scenarios. The program includes three main features:
The live phishing simulation tool allows users to send out simulated phishing emails and receive real-time results, enabling them to identify fraudulent emails. The automated reporting feature allows administrators to track how many users identified the correct answer for each question in each simulation. Finally, the user-friendly interface makes it easy for employees participating in the training process—even if they are not familiar with security protocols—to understand what they need to do when they receive a hoax email.
NetCom Learning CEO Russell Sarder says, “Training employees on how to identify phishing emails is an important part of protecting organizations against cybersecurity threats. Successful cybersecurity training should be immersive, interactive, and mimic real-world phishing attacks as closely as possible. Our cybersecurity awareness training addresses both these aspects as it allows organizations to easily conduct phishing simulations and train employees at all levels on cybersecurity best practices, which will equip them to mitigate cyber risks proactively.”
EC-Council is one of the most popular and globally trusted brands for its cybersecurity training, education, and certifications.
