Spear Phishing Attacks: Take a Free Test to Find Out if Your Firm is Safe

By Doug Striker, CEO, Savvy Training & Consulting

According to KnowBe4, the world’s most popular integrated Security Awareness Training and Simulated Phishing platform, 91% of successful data breaches start with a spear phishing attack.

Spear phishing. Don’t you just love cyber security geeks?! They can make even the most technical problems sound like adventures in the great outdoors!

So, what is spear phishing and why should you protect your law firm (phirm?) from it?

Spear phishing is an email that appears to be from an individual or business that you (or your staff members) know. But it isn’t. It’s from hackers who are looking to create a backdoor into your firm’s system, exposing everything from your HR files to your clients’ classified information.

How can you possibly protect your firm from such underhanded techniques?!

Answer: become underhanded yourself!

Over the last few years, thousands of organizations in the U.S have started to phish their own users. IT pros have realized that doing this is urgently needed as an additional security layer. Today, phishing your own users is just as important as having antivirus and a firewall.

As an authorized partner with KnowBe4, I can help you figure out ways to phish your own users and discover your weak spots. In fact, I can offer you a free spear phishing test to help you find out what percentage of your staff is “phish-prone.” (The number is usually much higher than you expect.)
