ATLANTA — APRIL 28, 2020 — Curricula, a leading provider of fun cyber security awareness training, launched a new service designed to gamify the phishing reporting experience for employees. As part of Curricula’s phishing awareness training experience, employees are now incentivized for reporting phishing emails to help their IT teams quickly defend against phishing attacks.
Curricula customers are motivated to catch DeeDee, Curricula’s villain AI hacker, in the act by reporting one of her phishing tests. Employees are then rewarded for their efforts in the Curricula app and sent a positive note from DeeDee for spotting her.
As more employees are working remotely in the time of Coronavirus, hackers around the world are leveraging phishing scams due to confusion around the virus, financial stimulus uncertainty, and increased email notifications. “The current experience for employees to report phishing isn’t motivating, so we brought it to life,” said Curricula’s CEO, Nick Santora. “Curricula’s continued focus on employee experience will make cyber security programs stronger. Our phishing reporting service is fun to use. We are going to see IT leaders leveraging Curricula in new and innovative ways.”
To successfully defend against phishing attacks, organizations of all sizes continue to integrate several cyber security vendors to work together. Curricula plays an important role with each and every customer to help build awareness, train, and communicate with employees on how to defend themselves against hackers. With this new service, Curricula is even further integrated as an extension of a powerful cyber security program.
