Anti-Phishing Essentials Course

GLS’ latest update to our award-winning Anti-Phishing Essentials training program with gamification provides a comprehensive dive into the latest phishing tactics and hacker strategies – the most widespread threat to cybersecurity – and its variants, including ransomware, spear phishing and business email compromise

Course Description

Phishing scams come in many forms, targeting weaknesses in humans and technology across organizations and networks. A successful attack can expose data, spread malware infections or give access to restricted systems. Phishing attacks can occur through email, SMS texting, phone calls and social media in an attempt to steal sensitive data.

Phishing has become the weapon of choice for cybercriminals. It’s important to be vigilant to prevent attacks, as they can have severe consequences. The Colonial Pipeline attack in 2021, for example, temporarily shut down the pipeline supplying gas to the entire eastern coast of the United States. The incident created a panic for businesses and individuals alike.

GLS’s anti-phishing essentials course teaches how to avoid becoming a victim of phishing attacks by explaining how phishing attacks work and how to recognize email phishing, which accounts for approximately 70% of cyberattacks worldwide.

With a variety of gamified cyber training and phishing simulations, this award-winning cybersecurity training course has been the product of choice for leading global-based organizations. It provides real-world scenarios to identify and avoid ransomware attacks on personal information.
