Default PhishHunter rules make automation easy

Two new Orchestration Center rules were applied for all PhishHunter users to make it easier to automatically respond to employee-reported emails and organize your email review queue.

Rule 1: Message has been reported
This rule delivers the Reported notification email to every employee who reports a suspicious email. The Reported notification thanks the employee for reporting the email and ensures them your security team is investigating.

Rule 2: AwareEd campaign notification has been reported
This rule delivers the Safe email notification email to an employee if they report an AwareEd training notification email. The Safe email notification informs the employee the email was not malicious and asks them to retrieve the email they reported to complete their training.

Once this rule is applied, the reported email is automatically moved to the PhishHunter trash, meaning it will not appear when reviewing your Analyst Console.

You can edit or delete either of the default rules from the Orchestration Center Rules Manager or use the Add Default Rules button to re-add the default rules.
