Security Awareness Training

What is Ransomware?

In 2012, a new form of cyber criminal emerged.  The scam was to access a company network and plant malware that would lock up the file server and deny access to any company files until a ransom was paid in a new type of currency - Bitcoin.  Once paid, the files were unlocked and able to be accessed.


In later years the threats became more serious - release of company data including customer files and disclosure of the ransomware attack, thus damaging the company's reputation.


How Is it Done?

70% of the attacks start with a technique called phishing. The targets are employees. Using email, the employees are tricked into clicking on a link, opening an attachment, or going to a fake website, made to look like a real company site like Amazon or Verizon, where they are coaxed into providing passwords and other sensitive information.

The Tools


Once you have started to roll out The Program, a number of crucial software tools are available to increase the security of your network.


1)  Phish Alert Button - integrated with Outlook, MS 365 and Google Mail, this tool allows a user to report a suspicious email to your response team with one click

2) PhishRIP - if the team identifies a reported email as malicious, it can rip the email out of all users email boxes before it is read or possibly acted upon

3) PhishFLIP - automatically turns user reported phishing attacks targeted at your organization into safe simulated phishing campaigns in the KnowBe4 platform.  With PhishFlip, you can now immediately “flip” a dangerous attack into an instant real-world training opportunity for your users.


Old-school awareness training does not hack it anymore. Your email filters have an average 7-10% failure rate; you need a strong human firewall as your last line of defense.
