Celebrated every October, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safer and more secure online.
Herndon, Va., Sept. 4, 2013 – ThreatSim, a leading innovator of simulated phishing defense training and awareness solutions, today announced it will offer new customers an entire month of free phishing training this October in support and recognition of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
Celebrated every October, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month was created as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safer and more secure online. Since its inception a decade ago under leadership from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance, NCSAM has grown exponentially, reaching consumers, small and medium-size businesses, corporations, educational institutions, and young people across the nation.
“We share in the mission and vision of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month and are pleased to extend a free month subscription in October to any new customers looking to accelerate awareness and get their organization’s employees trained so the network and other mission- critical assets stay protected,” said ThreatSim Co-Founder and CEO Jeff LoSapio.
New customers participating in the ThreatSim free month subscription will be able to send simulated phishing e-mails to their employees using ThreatSim-designed templates or their own. Any employee falling for the phish is presented automatically with ThreatSim’s SpearTrainingTM messages equipped with tips on how to tell phishing messages from authentic e-mail messages.
ThreatSim customers, including a top five U.S. bank, a top three U.S. utility and one of the largest government defense contractors, have achieved up to an 80 percent reduction in the rate of employees who click on phishing e-mail messages. Available in 11 languages and country themes, ThreatSim simulations are extremely realistic, coupled with effective training content that equips employees on how to identify and avoid phishing attacks. ThreatSim is a secure hosted service that requires no installation or configuration.
