Empowering users to report phishing emails that reach their inboxes is a great idea, but are you able to process numerous phishing reports in an efficient manner? How quickly would you be able to detect that one of your users is compromised and is sending phishing emails within your organization? To help solve these problems at the University of Victoria, they developed a tool called Phish Hawk. Not only has this tool helped them streamline their processes to review phishing reports and block malicious URLs, it was also instrumental in detecting several compromised users who were sending phish. Additionally it helped them identify others who were forwarding phish to their colleagues in an unsafe manner. Phish Hawk enabled the University of Victoria to respond to these situations promptly.
