Micro Incorporated (TYO:
4704), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, today announced
partnerships with several leading cybersecurity training providers to
help businesses protect their employees from the latest cyber threats.
To ensure customers have a wide variety of training styles and formats,
Trend Micro is teaming up with four leading partners: NINJIO,
Security, and GoldPhish.
The new training materials are available on Trend Micro’s Phish
Insight tool, which is a free, highly flexible security awareness
solution. This new educational platform will offer customers a diverse
library of training content to enhance employee awareness initiatives
and arm organizations with the resources they need to improve overall
“All businesses today are susceptible to socially engineered phishing
emails and BEC attacks, which can cause severe financial and
reputational damage,” said Wendy Moore, vice president of product
marketing for Trend Micro. “We want to help make the digital world
safer, and have partnered with four leading organizations from around
the world to offer educational resources to complement our free Phish
Insight tool. Adding educational resources allow companies to not only

Reported BEC attacks cost global businesses nearly $1.3
billion in 2018, more than any other threat category, and phishing
emails are linked to a third
of data breaches and 94% of malware occurring last year. The latest
improvements to Phish Insight will enable businesses to better train
staff to curb the impact of these threats.
In line with customer feedback, Trend Micro is working with multiple
proven training providers to offer a wide range of content to fit the
broadest possible variety of organizational cultures – whether that’s a
more conservative teaching style or animated story telling. Some firms
will prefer micro learning experiences for their employees whereas
others will prefer longer more detailed training sessions; the key is to
have enough choice to meet this demand.
Customers will have access to the content that best fits their needs
with no contracts or subscriptions, completely free for the first six
months during a beta period.
