Security Awareness Training (SAT)

Turn your end-users into a strong last line of defense with Proofpoint Security Awareness Training (PSAT)

Proofpoint Security Awareness Training provides an added layer of security by testing and educating employees about the latest threat trends. From Wombat Security, a Gartner MQ leader, these unique tools and methodologies help you reduce the number of successful phishing attacks and malware infections.

Proofpoint Essentials–Security Awareness helps SMBs deliver the right training to the right people at the right time. It turns your end users into a strong last line of defense against cyber attacks.

More than 90% of today’s cyber attacks target users through email.1 While technology safeguards are important, they can’t stop everything. That’s why you need educated employees as a strong last line of defense. Your users must be able to recognize and reject phishing, business email compromise (BEC) and other threats. An effective security awareness training program shows your people how to avoid opening the door to a threat.

Proofpoint Essentials–Security Awareness is designed to meet the unique needs of any size organizatioon but is particularly popular with SMBs. Our people-centric approach helps efficiently change employee behavior. This reduces your organization’s exposure to breaches while minimizing employee downtime.

Phishing Awareness

2020 Phishing Statistics - Spambrella

Those in security and IT must wonder: who doesn’t know what phishing is? The (unfortunate) answer is this: countless numbers of people…

Security awareness training can be a valued part of the organization’s security and privacy culture, producing measurable results, rather than a must-do compliance exercise. It provides an objective measurement of people-centric risk and has shown consistent results in lowering that risk in organizations across the globe. Timing is critical to your security awareness training program, particularly when it comes to identifying training needs, identifying users and groups, defining activities, and establishing and managing schedules.

  • Interactive Training Modules
    Help employees make the right decisions when face-to-face with a wide range of cybersecurity risks, from phishing attacks to insider threats. Each engaging interactive module takes just 5-15 minutes to complete and simulates real-life situations.
  • Awareness Videos
    Our videos are a great way to introduce your employees to the importance of security awareness training and to reinforce what they’ve already learned, increasing knowledge retention.
  • Security Awareness Materials
    Our customizable cybersecurity awareness posters, images, and articles are designed to reinforce your education initiatives, keeping security top-of-mind.

Frequency of Activities

We generally recommend the following recommendations in our best practices documentation for frequency and timing of activity:

  1. Sending a phishing test every four to six weeks and mixing up the types of themes and lures used.
  2. Using auto-enrollment on phishing tests at least once a quarter and using a targeted follow-up module, depending on the type of attack sent.
  3. Reviewing VAP reports monthly or bimonthly. Depending on what is seen there, admins should decide who should receive targeted training and which training content to use.
  4. Assigning organization-wide training at least quarterly.
  5. Repeating broad CyberStrength knowledge assessments and blind phishing tests at least once a year to compare to baseline assessments.
  6. To reinforce learning retention, schedule at least bi-annual security awareness activities like webinars, contests, or in-person (if possible) activities.

Protect your organization with threatsim phishing simulations

Delivering the training your users actually need is the key to a security awareness program that works. Our ThreatSim® Phishing Simulations reveal how susceptible your users are
to a wide range of phishing and spear-phishing attacks. With thousands of different templates across 13 categories, you can assess users on multiple threat types, including:

• Malicious attachments
• Unsafe URLs
• Requests for personal data

You also need to keep your training up to date with the ever-changing threat landscape. We add new templates every week to make sure current attack trends are included. Our
Dynamic Threat Simulation phishing templates are drawn from:

• Proofpoint threat intelligence
• Customer requests
• Seasonal trends

When a user falls for a simulated attack, they receive “just-in-time” teaching. They learn the purpose of the exercise, the dangers of real-world attacks, and how to avoid future traps. You can also assign training automatically to anyone who falls for a phishing simulation.
