How To Fight & Win The War Against Phishing Attacks

by Kristen White Blogger
Phishing attacks are a big threat for organizations. Awareness and training help because employees who can identify phishing emails are your first line of defense. However, it is not enough, you also need a powerful phishing security system to protect your company from malicious threats. Here are some ways training and phishing solutions can help you fight and win the war against phishing attacks.

Know How to Identify Threats - One of the biggest challenges in fighting phishing attacks is that website owners and users do not know what to look for and failure to spot phishing emails can jeopardize the security of your organization. It is important to stay current on the latest phishing scams and inform your staff so everyone knows how to identify potential threats and what action to take.

Avoid Complacency – Training is a good start toward preventing phishing attacks, but you can’t rely on it for total protection. The problem is it works for the first few months, and then employees become complacent. They also get busy with day-to-day tasks and deadlines, and being engaged and motivated to fight phishing attacks isn’t first and foremost on their minds. As a result, the company becomes more susceptible to such attacks. Therefore, you need to supplement training with other solutions.

Building & Develop the Right Skills - Learning to spot phishing attacks is imperative for complete phishing security, but developing the skills to fight phishing takes time. Changing behavior also takes time. So, be sure to allow your staff adequate time to learn and don’t overwhelm them with too much information and simulations all at once. Focus on training frequency and retention to achieve sustainable results.

Accurate Anti-Phishing Software - A comprehensive anti-phishing strategy requires more than just training. You also need an anti-phishing software solution for complete phishing security. Look for a user-friendly, cloud-based solution that blocks spam, malware and phishing emails and is easy to integrate with your existing systems.

With a comprehensive training program and anti-phishing software, you can win the war against malicious phishing attacks.
