The COVID-19 pandemic has elevated the atmosphere of fear and uncertainty that malicious actors thrive on, making Security Awareness Training even more important now. Here’s how we tuned the WSAT April release to help you deliver value to your users right away:
- Three COVID-related phishing templates
- We’re seeing an above-average 12% clickthrough rate on these, emphasizing how important it is to warn your users about these scams.
- Social Engineering training course
- You’ll want to make this your topical training for the month, and part of your core security training going forward.
- Zeppelin Ransomware Security Briefing
- This is the first in a series of a new training format. Webroot Security Briefings are 2-minute videos designed to quickly inform users to notable trends and issues identified by the Webroot Threat Intel team. This quick, entertaining format does not feature any knowledge verification, so it’s a good way to add some variety to your Security Awareness campaigns.
In addition, highlights of this month’s release include improvements to course descriptions and thumbnails in the Library viewer, consolidating the popular Understanding Phishing Micro course into two more focused versions, and removal of broken or obsolete phishing templates.
