The human aspect of cybersecurity is one of the most challenging ones to manage. Headlines are filled with cyber incidents everyday from ransomware, data breaches, account compromise. New findings on current efforts to deal with employee risk in the workforce, reveal that traditional employee efforts simply don’t work.
The report, Elevating Human Attack Service Management, conducted by the Cyentia Institute, aggregated data from 114,000 Elevate Security Platform users for the last three years and found that while security training results in slightly lower phishing simulation click rates among users, it has no significant effect at the organizational level or in real-world attacks. Moreover, an increase in simulations and training can be counterproductive, with the report finding that users with five or more training sessions are actually more likely to click on a phishing link than those with little or no training.
