Part of our cyber security training

This knowledge check is part of our 20 minute cyber security course and cyber security training suite, a journey through a series of interactive apps just like this one. The course will help users understand their cyber security weak points, how to identify and avoid social engineering and how to avoid phishing emails or unsafe websites. You can demo the course here.

Why phishing?

Phishing is becoming a growing threat to our security.  Even if your organisation’s IT department is doing everything to make their computer system safe, one employee can bring down the organisation through a phishing scam. For example, simply clicking on a PDF attachment can compromise your account details, as well as that of your colleagues, friends and family.

Every organisation should ask itself:

  • Is the secretary aware of the consequences of clicking on a link in an email from an unknown source?
  • Do HR staff know how to identify a phishing email?
  • Does the organisation’s account manager know how to differentiate between fake invoices and real ones?
