GCW: Coast Guard Mandates Anti-Phishing Training

According to a Government Computing News article, the Coast Guard is requiring all of its computer users to “take mandatory training on how to avoid fake e-mail messages that try to acquire sensitive data in a technique known as phishing and even more highly targeted attacks known as spear phishing.”
That reminds me of a anecdote I heard recently where the Air Force gave anti-phishing training, and then followed up with a test phishing email purportedly from a high ranking officer. Because of the power of the rank of the email they still got a very high click through rate. Obviously more training was needed. That or a better filter.
