Simulated Phishing Tests

Duke has a simulated phishing program designed to educate our users on recognizing and reporting suspected phishing attacks. The program is anonymous to entity leadership, non-punitive and not meant to be harmful or disruptive to normal business practice. Many entities have already opted in to phish their users on a monthly or quarterly basis and are seeing improvements.

During October 2021, you can also choose to opt in and agree to participate in additional simulated phishing for a chance to win prizes. Participants will receive a phish each workday between October 4-22 and report it using the “Report Phish to Duke” button to receive up to 60 additional points in the Duke Security Challenge. Points add up to prizes!

Beginning in November, participants will receive one phish per month and may opt out at any time.
