comment Conducting a succesful phishing test
@NicBarker Yes, I've measured that effect. It does subside pretty quickly, though (4 working days or over a weekend). Also, did you know that the best time to send a phishing email is on Fridays? Everyone's guard is down.

The first thing you'll need to determine is if the protocols are being filtered or merely the ports.

comment WPA explained for the non-technical?

comment WiFi Network Whitelisting?
Yes, no, or maybe. You don't give a lot of details. Often, MAC whitelisting is performed to block access to wifi, so you wouldn't be able to connect at all. Your assumption about the MAC whitelist could be false and they are using a NAC approach. Or they could be routing wifi connections in a certain way.
