Phishing Simulations are Not Enough
- Studies have shown that employee error accounts for 90% of breaches
- More security awareness training for employees with poor phishing simulation results is ineffective at keeping your organization more secure - it is not what employees know but what they do, that matters
- More security awareness training or more one-size-fits all controls do not necessarily equal a more secure organization
- There is a better way: Identify the riskiest employees and put a bubble around them to protect your organization

Why Cybersecurity Awareness Training for Poor Phishing Simulation Results Don't Work
Security Awareness Training is found to have little impact on employee security decisions. Over 90% of breaches are caused by poor security decisions made by your employees and contractors. These decisions run the gamut from simply clicking on phishing email to uploading sensitive data to the cloud or using weak passwords. We have found that there is a difference between what employees know and what they do. As your employees make thousands of such decisions everyday, each wrong decision makes your organization more susceptible to the next cyber attack.

"Availability of Security Reputation Score from Elevate Security has been a game changer for us. It allows us to exempt employees who exceed a certain threshold from taking Security Awareness Training and still remain compliant with the regulators. In our business that contributes to both the bottom line savings and top line growth."
