What are Simulated Phishing Attacks?
Cybercriminals use a tactic of disguising emails as coming from a trustworthy organization or reputable person, in order to elicit sensitive information from recipient, such as credit card number and login credentials. They can also use these fake emails to distribute spyware and malware via links or attachments that can steal information and perform other nefarious deeds. This is what is referred to as phishing emails.
Phishing is designed to exploit human behavior. It only takes one employee clicking on one compelling link that can result in a widespread data breach and huge financial and reputational costs to your organization. This is why security training is so critical.
As part of DC Plus’ end user security awareness training, we perform simulated phishing attacks to train your employees how to identify and report potential phishing emails.
How Simulated Phishing Attacks Work
Our phishing simulation training provides your employees with the knowledge they need to understand the dangers and recognize the signs of social engineering attempts. This includes giving them the ability to recognize, avoid and report all the potential threats to your critical business data and systems including phishing, malware, spyware and ransomware. We show your employees the different types of attacks, including vishing (voice phishing) and smishing (SMS/text phishing), how to pick up on the subtle clues, and what should be reported to your IT department. Continuous simulation and training help your employees fight phishing attacks and other cyber security threats.
Why Phishing Simulation is Important
User security awareness training isn’t a one-and-done practice. As businesses and their employees get smarter about cyber security, so do cyber criminals. Cyber criminals continually improve and evolve their tactics and develop new scams designed to fool your employees. These evolving and sophisticated attack techniques put your business at risk for data loss, financial fraud, and embarrassing exposure. End user security awareness training that includes phishing simulation protects your business by helping your entire organization avoid potentially catastrophic attacks.
