In this document, we provide information on the importance of an Email Phishing Simulation and how it fits within your overall cyber security strategy.

A Phishing simulation is a training tool that organisations can use to send realistic phishing email to employees in order to test their level of awareness of such attacks, as well as advising them on what to do with phishing emails when they receive them. A Phishing simulation is typically conducted in coordination with cyber security training that educates employees about how these attacks work and how to avoid them.

Eye-catching subject lines are tailor-made to grab your attention. Beware of the ones that are intended to deceive you. Globally, over 90 percent of malware is delivered via e-mail. While you or other employees might click on an e-mail in good faith, it could pose a financial risk to your business. So, wouldn’t you rather be safe than sorry?

Incident Response Solutions can run carefully planned, simulated phishing attacks to help you find out how vigilant your employees are and how they can be trained further. We can run a combination of pre-configured phishing kits and custom kits that contain text and formatting from a third party your staff often communicate with.

Examples of our pre-configured kits include:
