Cybersecurity Awareness Software

ThreatAdvice’s Cybersecurity Awareness Software is an integral component in a comprehensive security awareness training program. Not only is it important to provide your employees with cybersecurity education training, but you also need management tools to ensure compliance and oversight.

ThreatAdvice’s solution provides cyber security tools that include customized phishing campaigns that mimic real world examples and an extensive policies and procedures library that your organization can use to supplement existing policies complemented by an audit/tracking mechanism to keep an account of employees who have/haven't acknowledge policies.

ThreadAdvice Cybersecurity Awareness also provides an individual employee risk level scorecard where every single employee is rated individually as to their security risk to the enterprise.

Components of ThreatAdvice Security Awareness Training

Phishing Simulator

You can never know how prepared you are for a cyberattack until you simulate a real attack and assess where your security holes might be. Almost all cyberattacks come through “phishing”, or the sending of emails that trick someone in your organization into clicking on a malicious link and opening the back door of your system to the bad guys.

ThreatAdvice can assist you in assessing your cyber preparedness with our Phishing Simulator that regularly sends phantom attacks to your employees so that management can understand where your overall enterprise stands in terms of cybersecurity awareness and preparedness. Until you know where your weaknesses are, you can’t develop a plan to strengthen them!

Policies and Procedures Library

Our extensive policies and procedures library will allow you to take any policy in the library and make it your own. Having comprehensive policies and procedures in place is critical in your security efforts, and we make it much easier to develop a policies and procedures library that fits your organization. Plus, our audit/tracking mechanism can alert you to employees who haven’t acknowledged your security policies so that follow up action can be taken.

Employee Risk Scorecard

ThreatAdvice Cybersecurity Awareness provides a system that scores each employee in terms of the security risk he or she presents to the organization. audit/tracking mechanism to keep an account of employees who have/haven't acknowledge policies This provides management the ability to drill down to the employee level in assessing overall enterprise risk and they can utilize the audit/tracking mechanism to keep an account of employees who have/haven't acknowledge policies

What Do I Need To Know About Phishing? F.A.Q.

When internet fraudsters impersonate a business to trick you into giving out your personal information, it’s called phishing. Don't reply to email, text, or pop-up messages that ask for your personal or financial information. Don’t click on links within them either –even if the message seems to be from an organization you trust. It isn’t. Legitimate businesses don’t ask you to send sensitive information through insecure channels.

Examples of Phishing Messages

You open an email or text and see a message like these:

  • "We suspect an unauthorized transaction on your account. To ensure that your account is not compromised, please click the link below and confirm your identity."
  • "During our regular verification of accounts, we couldn't verify your information. Please click here to update and verify your information."
  • “Our records indicate that your account was overcharged. You must call us within 7 days to receive your refund.”

The senders are phishing for your information so they can use it to commit fraud.

How to Deal with Phishing Scams

Delete email and text messages that ask you to confirm or provide personal information (credit card and bank account numbers, Social Security numbers, passwords, etc.). Legitimate companies don't ask for this information via email or text. The messages may appear to be from organizations you do business with banks, for example. They might threaten to close your account or take other action if you don’t respond.

Don’t reply, and don’t click on links or call phone numbers provided in the message either. These messages direct you to spoof sites –sites that look real but whose purpose is to steal your information so a scammer can run up bills or commit crimes in your name.

Area codes can mislead, too. Some scammers ask you to call a phone number to update your account or access a refund. But a local area code doesn’t guarantee that the caller is local. If you’re concerned about your account or need to reach an organization you do business with, call the number on your financial statements or on the back of your credit card.

Action Steps You Can Take To Avoid A Phishing Attack:

  • Use trusted security software and set it to update automatically. In addition, use these computer security practices.
  • Don't email personal or financial information. Email is not a secure method of transmitting personal information.
  • Only provide personal or financial information through an organization's website if you typed in the web address yourself and you see signals that the site is secure, like a URL that begins https (the "s" stands for secure). Unfortunately, no indicator is foolproof; some phishers have forged security icons.
  • Review credit card and bank account statements as soon as you receive them to check for unauthorized charges. If your statement is late by more than a couple of days, call to confirm your billing address and account balances.
  • Be cautious about opening attachments and downloading files from emails, regardless of who sent them. These files can contain viruses or other malware that can weaken your computer's security.
