Most of us have either been on the giving or receiving end of a “phishing assessment” (also called phishing tests, mock phishing exercises, or phishing simulations). I have run live email phishing assessments for many different customers in the past 10 years, and have a lot of war stories to tell.

They are increasingly being used to attempt to measure employee vulnerability to phishing threats, and to provide a teachable moment to employees. However, these tests are not always done well, and they do present challenges to IT managers, security teams and executives. If they aren’t planned and executed properly, some phishing simulations can even attract unwanted attention from the legal and PR teams.

In this recorded webinar, I introduce the Phishing Assessment Optimizer™ as a tool for reviewing phishing assessment programs, and explain in detail many risks and how to avoid them. (Challenge for you: How many do you think there are?)
