January 2018, after 7 years of helping our customers to enable their employees to make smarter security decisions, we reached the milestone of 15,000 customers. At this point we decided to redo our initial April 2013 analysis of average Phish-prone percentages and this time also break them out by industry and size.
Now having a massive database to analyze, the new research uncovered some surprising results. The overall industry initial Phish-prone percentage benchmark turned out to be a troubling 27%.
Fortunately, the data showed that this 27% can be brought down more than half to just 13% in only 90 days by deploying new-school security awareness training. The 365-day results show that by following these best practices, the final Phish-prone percentage can be minimized to 2.17% on average. See the full webinar.
NEW Virtual Risk Officer (VRO) feature, provides insight and actionable metrics that will allow you to understand the attack surface of your organization, and learn what users might be more vulnerable to a phishing attack. VRO provides dynamic risk scores, assigned to users, groups, and your organization as a whole, which enable you to make data-driven decisions when it comes to your security awareness plan and understand what users are the most susceptible to a phishing attack. You can even use Smart Group conditional statements that will allow selection based on individual risk scores. To see a quick video overview of VRO, click here.
