I love made up words! Another really great post. I have not heard of CUPP before i'm going to have to check that out! I'm always curious about phishing email trends. I always encourage people, no matter what their job is, to share with the IT/Security team the common themes or trends they are seeing. Trying to keep an open communication channel is so important for spotting, detecting, mitigating and preventing phishing.

Thanks for your comment Spencer! And you're absolutely right. Earlier this year I worked for a company here in Australia that's known for having a great security culture. They have multiple teams dedicated to educating employees within the company on security trends, especially phishing, and they always encourage employees to send fishy looking stuff to these teams. It works really well.
