We’re excited to announce the release of our 2018 State of the Phish™ Report, an annual research study that is a trusted resource for infosec professionals who are planning and delivering security awareness training programs for their end users. This year’s report combines data and analysis from three key sources:
Security Awareness Training: Best Practices to Consider
When it comes to security awareness training, each organization's program is likely to be at least slightly unique. In fact, we encourage organizations to put their own stamp on their cybersecurity education intiatives in order to reflect specific policies and elements of corporate culture. That said, we have identified several elements that are common threads among the most effective programs. These are the key components to consider as you plan your initiatives:

Worst Passwords of 2017: Deja Vu All Over Again
Another year in the books ... another batch of bad passwords to peruse. We reviewed SplashData’s 2016 and 2015 editions of its “Worst Passwords List” in prior years. When it comes to 2017's rankings, it's possible Yogi Berra's quote, "It's deja vu all over again," has never been more apt.

Cybersecurity Resolutions: Make 2018 the Year of the End User
As we close out 2017, it's a good time to think ahead to next year and the processes and procedures that could be improved in 2018 to better manage end-user risk and improve overall security postures. In this vlog entry, we suggest reexamining the way pieces of technology are used throughout your organization and considering whether users of all kinds — including you — are thinking about devices in the right ways and obtaining the appropriate levels of training ...

Five Cybersecurity Predictions for 2018
As we look ahead to 2018, some are predicting new and novel cyberthreats, such as ransomware attacking people through Internet of Things- (IoT-) enabled home appliances. While such dystopian visions may indeed come to pass, what’s clear to us is that end-user risk will continue to play a critical role in an organization’s cybersecurity.
All-In on Technology? Expect Users to Fold When the Chips Are Down.
Despite the fact that many security experts have been encouraging — even imploring — organizations to think differently about their end users and focus on building a culture of security from the top down, infosec professionals still yearn for a technical solution to employee-driven cybersecurity woes, phishing in particular.
