Phishing Simulation

Why bother with phishing tests?

Phishing has become one of the fastest evolving threats to data security in recent years. Malicious emails are sent every day with the sole purpose of stealing confidential, private information from individuals and companies. These emails are looking more and more authentic and the statistics reflecting successful phishing attacks are becoming increasingly ominous.

There is hope! The best, most effective way to combat phishing is with education and training. You and your employees need the awareness and tools to help identify a questionable email, distinguish a friendly vs. foe link and keep perpetrators out of your confidential data. That is where phishing simulations come to the rescue.

How do phishing tests work?

Phishing simulations begin by testing your employee’s ability to spot a phishing email. This email is crafted to look like a legitimate email and is sent out to your employees. The goal of the simulation is to see who clicks on the email and interacts with the links or attachments and who reports the email as potential spam or phishing.

The results of the test are then compiled and provided to you so that you can gauge where additional training needs to happen. In many cases, cybersecurity awareness training covers many methods that attackers use to attract their target. This includes phishing!

Regular simulations and trainings can keep your employees in the know about the methods used by attackers and can keep your company data safe.
