What the public knows about cybersecurity quiz

Most Americans don’t know much about Cybersecurity – And you?

I did the quiz. My score was 9 out of 10. With this result I belong to the top 4% – It’s not only about strong passwords…
A new Pew Research Center survey titled “What the Public Knows about Cybersecurity” tallied responses from more than thousand American adults last year about their understanding of concepts important to online safety and privacy. It shows that Americans are not as good as recognising Phishing mails or determining if the web site where they are entering credit card information is encrypted. We assume that other countries would not perform better.
Pew - Study: What the public knows about Cybersecurity
Only 54% of US internet users are able to identify examples of phishing attacks. Phishing remains a favourite trick for infecting computers with malware and to gain access to the computer. Americans’ understanding of E-Mail and Wi-Fi encryption is also rather mixed. Less than half of internet users are able to correctly identify that the statement “all email is encrypted by default” is false.
Private browsing not really private – Only 4 out of 10 internet users are aware that internet service providers (ISPs) are able to see the sites their customers are visiting while utilizing the “private browsing” mode on their internet browsers. And one-third (33%) are aware that the letter “s” in a URL beginning with “https://” indicates that the traffic on that site is encrypted!
Other findings in the Pew survey:
  • 75 % of participants are able to identify the most secure password from a list of four options.
  • 52 % of people know that turning off the GPS function on smartphones does not prevent tracking. Mobile phones can be tracked via cell towers / Wi-Fi networks.
  • 10 % were able to identify one example of multi-factor authentication when presented with four images of online login screens.

We’ve been white hackers and IT-security auditors for 20 years. At this time, we were rather reserved in the communication to the outside. It took time for us to open up to the public. But as brand new product developers we had to do so and it helped us to participate in competitions!

So, we are looking forward to seeing more prices in the future.

LUCY rocks!

Phishing Campaigns with hundred of thousands of users - Robert Bosch is a LUCY Customer

Phishing Campaigns with up to 300,000 recipients – Robert Bosch LLC is a LUCY Customer

Robert Bosch is a LUCY Anti-Phishing Software CustomerRobert Bosch  – “Bosch” is one of LUCY Security’s first big corporate customers. Thanks to its support, the LUCY Anti Phishing and Awareness Training Server was able to develop rapidly.

Their Enterprise Security Team is using LUCY since early 2016. Since then they have conducted various campaigns with up to 300,000 users and in more than 10 different languages. They also started to use the new function of “portable media phishing” (USB) recently.

The company did choose LUCY because of its excellent price / performance ratio and due to the fact that Bosch can run LUCY  Anti-Phishing Server as a local installation (on-Premise). So they can ensure that no sensitive data from employees leaves the company. That’s also why the Enterprise Security Team obtained quickly the approval from the works council, since they convincingly could demonstrate that no employee monitoring is being done. The company uses LUCY in a global, corporate scale and implements specific, custom made Security Awareness Trainings and Phishing Scenarios. LUCY as a product helps very much maintaining and developing this specific content.

“I can say that LUCY is a very efficient tool for my team, for creating awareness amongst our employees and it meets all our requirements!” – Patrick Zeller – Senior Manager Enterprise Security, Robert Bosch Gmbh
