How can you help to ensure all members of staff and councillors are aware of relevant policies and procedures to report cyber security incidents or suspicious emails?
Javvad, KnowBe4: “KnowBe4’s Phish Alert Button (PAB) is a free tool that users can deploy within Outlook or Gmail. It reinforces the organisations security culture by allowing users to report suspicious emails easily with just one click.
For administrators, all emails come into PhishER, a lightweight Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) platform to quickly identify and respond to the most pressing threats. Where a malicious phishing email is found, PhishRIP allows administrators to search across all email and remove the malicious emails from users inboxes before they fall victim to it.”
Aaron, Proofpoint: “Proofpoint has a ‘Phish Alarm’ button that sits in outlook meaning the user can flag threats to the security team immediately. We also have our CLEAR offering (Closed Loop Email Analysis and Response) which is an integration within our email remediation solution. This allows for employees to flag a threat to the security team and they can then automatically remove the threat from the user’s inbox.
“This can also work on large-scale attacks to multiply employees. For example, if 12,000 users across 5 global sites get hit with the same phishing email, the security team can remediate all emails with one click of a button. We believe this is truly unique in the market as we are a specialist vendor in email and messaging and our solutions are market-leading, consistent and effective.”
