Risk Analysis

  • Last updated on

Barracuda PhishLine includes a Risk Assessment survey you can distribute to your users to see how they feel about online security and safety. Based on the results, you can make decisions on how to best address areas with the highest risk.

Some organizations choose to distribute the Risk Assessment survey when they first purchase Barracuda PhishLine to get baseline values for their organization. Then, they will distribute it again periodically to small groups, to see how their organization's risk profile has changed.

For instructions on creating your own Survey, see Creating a Risk Analysis Survey.

The Survey

The survey is called Risk Assessment Survey - 25, and you can access it from the Training Content or Content Center.
