New knowledge check: Phishing Challenge


Phishing-challengeEmployees are the weakest link in most cyber security attacks. The VinciWorks Phishing Challenge addresses this weakness by training employees to spot phishing emails.

This five-minute, mobile-friendly challenge:

  • Educates users on how to spot suspicious emails
  • Produces a report with each employee’s phishing risk score
  • Enables you to identify high-risk employees
  • Challenges users to spot red-flags in real phishing emails

Demo the Phishing Challenge

The Phishing Challenge is designed as a “micro course”, a five-minute, SCORM compliant e-learning course that can be used in any learning management system to track user completions and risk score.

It is available for free, whether or not you are a VinciWorks client.

Advanced analytics and course customisation

This Phishing Challenge can be customised (at a cost) to include internal information about cyber security policies. We can also collect advanced analytics to identify cyber weaknesses in your organisation.

These analytics include:

  • Highest risk employees
  • Highest risk departments
  • High risk questions
  • Detailed results for every user
  • Your firm compared to other firms

Part of VinciWorks’ cyber security training

This micro course is part of a 20 minute cyber security course, a journey through a series of interactive apps just like this one. The course will help users understand their cyber security weak points, how to identify and avoid social engineering and how to avoid phishing emails or unsafe websites. You can demo the course here.

Why phishing?

Phishing is becoming a growing threat to our security.  Even if your organisation’s IT department is doing everything to make their computer system safe, one employee can bring down the organisation through a phishing scam. For example, simply clicking on a PDF attachment can compromise your account details, as well as that of your colleagues, friends and family.

Every organisation should ask itself:

  • Is the secretary aware of the consequences of clicking on a link in an email from an unknown source?
  • Do HR staff know how to identify a phishing email?

Does the organisation’s account manager know how to differentiate between fake invoices and real ones?
