Overall Satisfaction with Hoxhunt Gamified Phishing Training

I use Hoxhunt Gamified Phishing Training in my journal as a tool for linking malicious emails. It helps to considerably improve knowledge so as not to fall for a phishing email. For example: When an email arrives, are users often not careful to analyze the general data, such as who sent it? Are you a trusted sender? whether there are links to click? misspellings? and that can put the entire organization at risk! With the help of Hoxhunt, we are gradually understanding several points where we should pay attention to and avoid falling into these malicious emails. It helps to understand how important it is to have more advanced knowledge on the subject, this makes each employee more qualified to defend themselves virtually.
  • Helps understand phishing email
  • Interactive learning, facilitating understanding
  • Score ranking that helps to engage
  • Shows common errors in phishing emails
  • Constant learning about how to protect yourself virtually
  • The score could be more transparent, as there are people with more stars and I don't know why, as I correctly reported the phishing
  • Have other ways to get stars other than just reporting email
  • Have a user score comparison tool
  • email report
  • gamification
  • user board with the most stars
  • Display of errors in emails when reporting
  • I believe that it has a great positive impact, because, with the informed collaborator, it avoids a loss of confidential data and, consequently, does not lose customer trust.
  • Employee more confident that he is prepared not to suffer hacker attacks
  • On the negative side, I believe that for small institutions it is not very interesting, since there are few employees, perhaps the cost is not worth it.
  • In general, the company and employees feel more confident that they are protecting the company and customer data
Sonar is different, it is not comparable with Hoxhunt, but what I can say is that Hoxhunt is a great investment for knowledge about phishing, organizations should invest in this knowledge so that more and more employees can be prepared and avoid data leakage. There is no way to protect data without the knowledge of everyone who could somehow put it at risk.

It is suitable for companies as a whole, as it helps to prevent users from clicking on malicious emails, thus preventing an attack that puts the company at risk of security and can leak sensitive information. It is ideal in scenarios where we have sensitive data to protect, where you cannot be careless with emails, you always need to pay attention and analyze before making a decision to click or not on any email link. For example, checking if an email is known, if it is reliable, if there are any suspicious links, and if the email has a certain urgency to click on the links, are some of the precautions that you can learn from Hoxhunt Gamified Phishing Training. In my experience of use, I don't see it being indicated for purposes other than learning about phishing, as far as I'm aware this is Hoxhunt's strong point.
