The Phishing Awareness Program promotes awareness, education, and safety concerning phishing attacks. The goal of the program is to help our Stanford community protect themselves and the university by learning to recognize malicious emails.
How the program works
The Phishing Awareness Program has three main aspects: phishing simulation emails, awareness communications, and training opportunities.
Phishing simulation emails
The program periodically sends an email to participating audiences that resembles a phishing message.
This method is designed to create a safe, educational environment for a recipient to practice phishing email identification with no penalty to them if a link is clicked. Individual results will never be reported.
Ongoing awareness resources and communications by the Phishing Awareness Program are designed to keep you in the know.
