Phishing Simulation Overview
Planning & Goal Setting
We help you define clear objectives, frequency, and success metrics for the phishing simulation campaign.
Designing the Simulation
We create realistic, relevant phishing emails, balancing realism with ethical considerations.
Execution & Monitoring
We initiate the phishing simulation campaign, closely monitoring and tracking how employees interact and respond to it.
Feedback & Training
We provide immediate feedback, recognise correct responses, and offer targeted training based on simulation results.
Phishing attacks are the number one attack vector used by adversaries to gain access to your systems and data.
Our Phishing Simulation mimics the tactics used by real cyber criminals and observes how your employees respond.
If an employee falls for the simulation, it presents a learning opportunity to help prevent incidents or data breaches in the future.
Benefits of Phishing Simulations
Phishing Simulation FAQ
Phishing Simulations are a controlled exercise where simulated phishing emails are sent to employees to test their response to potential cyber threats.
Phishing is the number one attack vector to gain access to an organisations systems and information.
Therefore, it’s crucial for training employees to recognise and respond appropriately to phishing attempts. As a result this enhances overall cybersecurity of a business.
The benefits include improved employee awareness, reduced risk of security breaches, and continually improvement of security policies.
Regularly, but not too often! We recommend once a quarter. This creates an ideal balance between training and employee awareness.
Yes, tailoring simulations to different departments can make them more relevant and effective. For example, sales and customer service teams may receive more emails from unknown external parties. Equally, Accounting could be more targeted with emails relating to payments and invoices.
Yes, they are effective in increasing awareness, reducing susceptibility to real phishing attacks, and strengthening organisational security.
Phishing emails work primarily because they exploit human psychology and natural tendencies.
They often create a sense of urgency or fear, prompting recipients to act quickly.
Additionally, they replicate legitimate communications from trusted sources, making it challenging to distinguish them from genuine emails.
This effectiveness is compounded by the vast number of emails people receive daily, leading to less attentive reading and increased chances of falling victim to these attacks.
