Overall Satisfaction with Barracuda Security Awareness Training (formerly Barracuda Phishline)

We are a cybersecurity company and we all think that we know everything regarding this topic. But what best than to have regular training and simulation? It's a great reminder with tips to apply in our professional and personal lives. Taking the time to analyze an email before clicking can avoid many disasters. Despite all the IT security tools, employees are still the biggest weakness. Barracuda's training is short and available in many languages. No more excuses for delaying the training!
  • Short videos
  • Phishing simulation models
  • Different languages
  • More trainings in Italian
  • Some workshops
  • Reporting
  • Planification
  • Customization of the simulation models
  • Less alerts in the security solutions in place
  • People are more aware
  • security checks are now instinctive
The simulation can't be scheduled. They are by default scheduled 2 weeks after the end of the module. No customization in the training. The training path is not flexible. Users are forced to go through different topics one after another. It's not possible to choose for example social media if the password module is not done. Too long. Users are abandoning too quickly.

Barracuda Essentials, Barracuda CloudGen Firewall (formerly NG Firewalls), Barracuda Cloud Archive (Sonian)
Well suited: - For new employees - Regular refresh - Raising security topics in the conversations between employees - Showing how important it is to be careful in Social Media publications - It's better to ask a silly question to the IT department in case of suspicion than to click on a malicious link Less appropriated: Still a lot to do on the administrative side
