A phishing campaign is a targeted email attack against your employees to find weaknesses in staff awareness. Focusing on the human aspect of security, our team tailor a attack against your employees to fool them into clicking a link, entering their credentials or opening an attachment.
Phishing is when attackers attempt to trick users into doing 'the wrong thing', such as clicking a bad link that will download malware, or direct them to a dodgy website. Phishing can be conducted via a text message, social media, or by phone, but the term 'phishing' is mainly used to describe attacks that arrive by email.
The Value of Phishing campaigns
Our Phishing Campaigns help Network Managers and Chief Information Security officers who want to identify weaknesses in IT security and staff awareness. The Cybx team do this by simulating generic to sophisticated phishing campaign to deceive employees. This improves staff awareness of security in turn mitigating loss of data or money. After a campaign the team continue helping your business by documenting captured information and who was affected so we are then able to offer training using CPD certified courses to improve staff awareness. Our campaigns provide a realistic engagement that is typical of a normal attack. This allows you to not fully rely on your technology or third party providers software and help to not rely on using common sense to reduce risk.
