According to Enjoy Safer Technology (ESET, 2019), 97% of people are unable to identify sophisticated phishing attacks. Though phishing attempts use scare tactics, website forgeries, or scams to increase their effectiveness and chances of success, research shows that the heart of the problem resides in a lack of effective training. Phishing Guard is a FREE, comprehensive, and easy to navigate web application designed to provide its users with the ability to receive interactive and effective training. In addition to creating a new approach to learning about phishing, this application will revolutionize the way these attacks are prevented. Phishing Guard has an easy to use menu system that includes short interactive quizzes, up to date videos, games, and more. These resources allow Phishing Guard to stand out among its peers, as it not only effectively decreases the success rate of phishing attempts but also increases user retention and awareness rate.
