Barracuda MSAT will send your end users two types of emails every month.

  • The first is a simulated phishing email, this aims to test your users by allowing you to determine who is unable to spot a phishing email.

  • The second is educational resources in the form of a video followed by a questionnaire on the content of the video.

The content of the emails varies from month to month and is based on current events and phishing techniques.
