The phishing awareness program periodically sends an email to each participant that resembles a phishing message. It’s designed to create a safe, educational environment for a recipient to practice phishing email identification with no penalty to them, or their department, if a link is clicked. Individual results will never be reported.
- Trains participants to recognize, report, and avoid phishing attacks, which helps protect them and their department from cyber threats.
- Helps the Information Security Office (ISO) collect better metrics and information about the ever-changing landscape of email-based attacks in order to better protect the Stanford community from these threats.
Beginning in June of 2018 all Stanford faculty and staff will automatically be enrolled in this service.
