Overall Satisfaction with Proofpoint Security Awareness Training (formerly ThreatSim)

As the CISO of the company I use Proofpoint to perform internal phish testing using the corporate email system. Our security department is the sole user, but tests are performed against the whole company. Results of phish tests are used to determine what type of security awareness training is needed. The tests let us know which personnel may need a refresher on our acceptable use policy and general email security training.
  • Easy to use templates.
  • Statistical analysis shows the status of security awareness across the company.
  • N/A
  • Awareness of malicious emails has greatly improved
  • Satisfies the requirements for HITRUST certification and MARS-E attestation in respect to User Training.
  • Helps to improve overall security posture by educating employees; lessening risks that could result from human error.
The training is helpful so that employees can learn how to spot fake/spoofed/malicious emails. It also helps to reinforce the company's Acceptable Use Policy and standard business practices.
