Costs of not phishing
Inadequate cybersecurity training can have serious financial consequences. In the event of a data breach, a business may be subject to fines, legal fees, and other expenses. According to a study by IBM, the average cost (globally) of a data breach exceeds $ 4 million, and in the US, the average is over $9 million. Additionally, a data breach can also have a significant impact on a business’s reputation, leading to lost customers and revenue.
What does phishing testing and training cost?
Phishing training costs as little as $2-$6 per month.
What is phishing training
The most effective form of training involves short 2-3 minute videos sent to employees after they click on a fake phishing link. The training should be short enough so they they'll watch it, delivered soon enough they remember what happened and informative enough they understand what they should have noticed. If your employees are failing the phishing tests regularly, you want to help them understand what they are missing. Want to test it out with a free phishing email test?
