The newly launched program is aimed at organizations because many fail to train and educate their employees about phishing scams and cybersecurity. Phishing emails can contain malware that is instantly downloaded upon clicking the link, or it can redirect the user to an inappropriate website.

Clicking on infected emails can cause serious problems for organizations, from data breaches to malware, or even sabotaging systems. Anything held on a compromised computer can be accessed and stolen, from intellectual property, to bank details, and personal information.

Phish Firewall has developed an advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) driven cybersecurity awareness education, threat emulation, and human security analytics platform. It is designed to reduce spyware, malware, data loss, ransomware, and data breaches.

A three-step approach has been developed by the leading cybersecurity team behind Phish Firewall. Firstly, users are educated about phishing to increase awareness throughout the company. The second stage involves conditioning employees to drive down phishing clicks to less than 1%.

The third and final step is to fortify the enterprise from the inside out by reducing malware. PhishFirewall uses the science of learning and behavioral modification to ensure employees are security aware.

Typical results for the program after one month are a phishing click rate of 15-30%, by the second month this has been reduced to 10-15% and by the sixth month, the click rate for phishing scams is less than 5%.

Analytics, reporting, and behavioral biometrics are provided so employee behavior can be monitored in relation to phishing click rates. Additionally, the program is fully automated giving organizations peace of mind and assurance that a cybersecurity expert is always available.

The program provides a long-term solution for businesses and can save money. In Europe, companies now face large fines for data breaches in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This kind of legislative change shows how serious Governments and organizations around the world treat data breaches.

A company spokesperson said: “Every year, somewhere around the world, there is a significant data breach or cybersecurity attack. It leaves businesses having to answer serious questions while facing fines and losing their reputation in the process.”

“Investing in a comprehensive employee cybersecurity training program is the only way to protect an organization and their customers,” they added.
