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.
