What is a Phishing Attack?

Phishing is a cybercrime where hackers deceive people to get sensitive information through email or text messages. Hackers use deceptive tactics to target both businesses and individuals. They try to trick people into giving away passwords or financial details. They target both businesses and individuals using deceptive techniques.

These fraudulent communications are designed to appear legitimate, but their aim is to illicitly acquire personal or confidential data from unsuspecting victims.

What is a Phishing Simulation?

A phishing simulation is a controlled exercise conducted by Cyber Security organisations to assess the susceptibility of their employees to phishing attacks. Phishing simulation sends fake emails to employees to test their response and awareness without causing harm. Incorporating phishing simulation online enables organisations to conduct these exercises efficiently and remotely, reaching employees regardless of their location or working arrangements.

Phishing simulations help organisations identify weaknesses. They also educate employees about phishing tactics. This helps improve security by increasing employee awareness and readiness to handle cyber threats.

Social engineering tests can include simulated phishing attacks, onsite access assessments, or a mix of both methods. Online phishing simulations test and improve employees’ ability to recognise and respond to phishing attacks in the digital workplace. These simulations are a useful tool for training employees on how to identify and handle phishing attempts. By conducting these simulations, organisations can better prepare their employees to protect sensitive information and prevent cyber threats.

Using our advanced reporting, we will be able to track each user’s ability to spot phishing emails. We will also look at elements like how long users take to instigate the online training and how engaged they are with the process.

Spear phishing is a targeted form of phishing where cyber criminals customise their attacks to specific individuals or organisations.

Spear phishing messages personalise and tailor to the recipient’s interests, role, or relationships, unlike generic phishing emails. This makes them more convincing and increases the likelihood of the recipient falling for the scam. Spear phishing attacks involve gathering information about the target, like their name, job title, colleagues, or recent activities. We use this info to create a convincing email that is tailored to the individual.

Spear phishing tricks people into sharing sensitive information. This can include passwords or financial details. It can also infect their computer with malware.

Email phishing is one of the most common forms of a social engineering attack, which is why it’s important to get ahead of and keep your organisation as safe as possible from.

What is an example of a phishing attack? Phishing emails are designed to look like a legitimate email from a credible source. For instance, the bank sends an email to your accounts team stating that someone has leaked or compromised your credit card details.

This instantly ignites emotion from the reader. You want to know more. This is what the hacker wants, they want you to click on a link, scan a QR code, update a password or open an attachment.

When conducting our phishing email simulator we try and incorporate a number of these tactics when creating the phishing emails examples. This way we keep your employees on their toes and it’s not obvious to them that we are conducting a phishing email simulator.
