2500 Staff members

1100 (44%) employees clicked on a link inside the customized spear phishing simulation and exposed the company to potential malware e.g. ransomware, virus, key-logging, cryptomining, spyware, etc.

900 (36%) employees followed the social engineered directions inside the email and gave up their login credentials (username and password).

5 minutes was the average time it took to get the first login information back.

After the customized spear phishing simulation WSA created a tailor made live presentation given to the targeted staff. This presentation includes the how, why, and what to do to protect your company. This presentation will help with your compliance needs e.g GLBA, PCI, HIPAA, SOX.
