Phishing Security Awareness Software

As part of employee training, the Agencies (FFIEC, FDIC, OCC, NCUA, and FRB) directed financial institutions to encourage employee awareness and preparation for a variety of social engineering attacks, including phishing email scams.

What is phishing?

According to the FFIEC Information Security E-Banking Booklet, phishing is "a digital form of social engineering that uses authentic-looking—but bogus—email to request information from users or direct them to fake Web sites that request information." Just as technical security is necessary for cybersecurity, employee education plays a role in maintaining cybersecurity. Only employees can save themselves from being victims of a phishing email cyber-attack.
