SB163a Does not open a simulated phishing email

Opening a simulated phishing email informs the IT or security team that employees might be at risk of taking further action to a real phishing email.

Why is it important?

Although simulated phishing emails pose no real threat, practicing good security behaviours will prepare you for real phishing attempts. By not opening a simulated phishing email, you're significantly reducing risk.
