KENNEBUNK Plixer International, a leading network incident response and security analytics company, announced recently the release of their Phishing Attack education game called 'Click Click Phish.' Free to play for all individuals and nonprofits, the game leverages an underwater theme with a fish that helps guide the player to making good decisions when evaluating each email. The objective of the game is to evaluate the links in each email before the water runs out of the tank. If the user clicks on anything other than Safe or Unsafe, the game ends and the user must start over. At the end of the game, a score is provided and users can see how they performed in comparison to others. There is also an option to register, which allows players to track their performance over time.

'After being involved with over 40 customer case studies, it became clear to us that we had to do something to help the internet community get educated on the dangers of clicking on things they shouldn't,' Michael Patterson, CEO of Plixer, said. 'Businesses need to be proactive about making sure their employees know how to avoid infections by carefully evaluating the links in the emails they receive.'
