Overall Satisfaction with Hoxhunt Gamified Phishing Training

We randomly receive emails that are spam or phishing emails. If we respond to them, we receive a notification that we failed to spot the threatening email. If we recognize it, open Hoxhunt, and report it, we receive star tokens that help push us to different levels. I recently reached the Stone level for example.
  • Their emails are sometimes very hard to spot, so has caused me to be a lot more cautious.
  • The gamification piece makes participation fun.
  • The system is easy to use and unobtrusive on the desktop.
  • While the "Good Job!" verbiage and tokens given are fine, other apps I use to make a bit more fanfare with a correct choice. I May consider sprucing that up a bit.
  • While the program has made me more cautious with emails, I have sometimes thought that it would be nice to have more real-life examples of the consequences of various types of emails being clicked on.
  • randomness
  • ease of use
  • fun to use
  • Keeps security top of mind
  • holds users accountable
  • provides picture of general employee awareness
I have never really used a product like this before (one focused solely on email security).

I come from an IT Management background, and I remember speaking to a CFO who had been hit by a scam to steal employee W2 information. He told me, "You can spend millions of dollars on security, but in the end, it comes down to does your individual employee click on that button." I think Hoxhunt is a brilliant way to make employees wary of clicking anything in an email without studying the email first, and with the randomness of its emails, it does a good job of keeping security front of mind. Some groups may even want to up the ante and give a prize or reward to the employee with the highest number of tokens in a quarter. I think this is a far more hands-on, day-to-day security training module than I have seen. It also is easy to use, takes up little time out of your day, and is unobtrusive on your desktop. While I find Ninjio innovative and effective in overall security training, Hoxhunt gets my nod for the most effective email security product I have used to date.
