New Study: Is Your Phish-Prone Percentage Better or Worse Than Your Peers in the Industry?
One of your important IT security projects is getting the Phish-prone percentage of your users as low as possible because phishing is the root cause of many security breaches.
But how are you doing compared to “similar-size peers” in your industry?
Our partner, KnowBe4, just completed a big-data analytics exercise over the 15,000 customers we have and came up with new baseline phish-prone percentages, and how fast it drops over time. To say the least, the numbers are very interesting, and this time we also broke them out by industry and size, showing the most at-risk industries.
Now having incredible data to analyze, the new research uncovered some surprising results. The overall industry initial Phish-prone percentage benchmark turned out to be a troubling 27%, but with variations by size and industry.
Fortunately, the data showed that this 27% can be brought down more than half to just 13% in only 90 days by deploying new-school security awareness training. The 365-day results show that by following these best practices, the final Phish-prone percentage can be minimized to 2.17% on average.
Key topics covered in the research:
- New phishing benchmark data by org size and industry
- Understanding the current phishing landscape
- Most clicked simulated phishing attacks
- Top 10 “In the Wild” reported phishing emails
