Workers’ union angry after employee phishing test


The Transport Salaried Staffs’ Association (TSSA) union has hit out at West Midlands Trains after an employee phishing test took place. Around 2,500 employees were sent an email which thanked them for their work during the pandemic and promised a bonus, however, those employees who clicked a link within the email were then told that they had failed a company security test. The message said, “This was a test designed by our IT team to entice you to click the link and used both the promise of thanks and financial reward.” Phishing is a huge risk to companies everywhere and employee awareness tests are common practice, however, the TSSA called the exercise “cynical and shocking.”
