Reported Phishes of the Week
The Reported Phishes of the Week is a phishing template category which contains the top ten phishing emails reported to us by users of the Phish Alert Button from the previous week. With ten brand new templates hand-selected by our security research team each week, using this category of templates will allow you to test your users with a variety of real-life phishing attacks.
The recommended settings for a Reported Phishes of the Week campaign are below and will serve to phish all of your users at different times with randomized templates. If you'd prefer not to set up an additional campaign, you can choose to include this category as part of your regularly scheduled ongoing phishing campaign.

If your company culture requires that you get approval on the kinds of templates you use to test your users, you should not set up an automated phishing campaign using this category.
We recommend that you set up your own category for the Reported Phishes of the Week and update it each week with only the template styles you'd like to use for that week.
Cybercriminals often use shocking tactics to get users to fall for phishing attacks. Sometimes, these tactics will appear in our Reported Phishes of the Week category.
