ATLANTA (PRWEB) July 24, 2018

Curricula, a leading cyber security awareness training startup based in Atlanta, announced the release of their Phishing Awareness Training platform to help organizations train their employees using real-world social engineering attacks. With over 90% of security breaches caused by human error, organizations of all sizes must train their employees how to defend against social engineering and phishing attacks. The Curricula phishing simulator allows organizations to experience a mock, simulated phishing attack targeting their own employees with a few simple clicks. Results from these simulations allows organizations to understand their risk of falling victim to a social engineering attack and how to train their employees to defend against future attacks.

Nick Santora, Curricula CEO, says, "The Curricula Phishing Simulator has been in the works for quite a while, because we wanted to do it right. While everyone else is tripping over how many more features they can stuff under the hood, we focused on making our phishing simulation experience fun, simple, and effective. We targeted improving the overall experience for employees going through these phishing simulation tests. Today, it's not fun if you fall victim to a simulation, because other tools are designed to negatively re-enforce behaviors. We focused on making the employee training experience unlike anything else out there. This is all about engaging an emotional state using our memorable and positive training experience."

The phishing simulation experience incorporates Curricula's distinctive social engineering character, DeeDee, into the process. DeeDee helps customers build phishing simulations and keeps them informed on simulation progress. Customers can select from a growing library of modern social engineering scenarios, to test how their employees react during a real-world simulated phishing attack.

Nick says, "We really focused on the employee experience. No longer will employees just be told to stop clicking links from faceless hackers. We build a security culture in your organization to "Defend Against DeeDee" at all costs. Now your employees can rely on a common theme with their training experience. They will work together to defend against DeeDee's social engineering tactics and learn how to use critical thinking every day in their role."

The Curricula phishing simulator automatically trains employees through a proprietary recovery process that helps employees defend against future attacks. Curricula customers will also receive access to a several tools, all focusing on reinforcing positive behaviors related to social engineering. Every employee will receive access to a Phishing Defense Guide. Curricula customers will also receive access to new tools such as a Phishing Lessons Learned to analyze simulation results as well as the Crucial Conversations guide to learn more from their employee's experience on a deeper level.
