Security awareness and training (SA&T) doesn't influence Type 1 thinking

People are more vulnerable to error when they are in Type 1 thinking. They act quickly and unconsciously, unable to recall historic training. As a result, SA&T programs that deliver generic training content on a periodic schedule are unable to meaningfully change people's behavior at the point of risk, such as when they're responding to a phishing attack or sending an email to the wrong person.  

It’s in these moments that people need intelligent technology to augment SA&T, alerting them to threats in real time and nudging them into more logical, lower-risk Type 2 thinking.

Egress uses real-time teachable moments to nudge people into Type 2 thinking

We use machine learning technology to deliver real-time teachable moments through our Intelligent Email Security platform.

Our dynamic alerts change based on the current level of risk and offer clear explanations, meaning people remain engaged and responsive over time.

When a threat occurs, these real-time teachable moments nudge people into Type 2 thinking, enabling them to respond rationally and logically.

Dynamic inbound threat detection in Microsoft 365

  • 1 Intelligent anti-phishing detection displayed via dynamic heat-based alerts. Egress Defend delivers anti-phishing banners directly within Microsoft 365, with heat-based warnings that change depending on the level of risk detected. This stops users from becoming desensitized to generic 'external email' warnings and nudges them back to Type 2 thinking with simple guidance when they genuinely need it.
