WHAT IS PHISHING?

Phishing is a cyber attack which can impact an organisation of any size and type. It usually occurs via email, and where attackers will pose as legitimate contacts to encourage users to click suspicious links that will download malware or direct them to a malicious website. Attacks can install ransomware, disrupt systems or result in money loss and stolen intellectual property. Users can also be encouraged to pass over their personal information such as passwords, bank account details and other sensitive information.

The term ‘Phishing’ is mainly used to describe attacks through email, however phishing can be conducted via social media, by phone and text messages. Phishing campaigns can be hidden amongst the huge number of emails and messages that busy users receive. An attacker could be seeking new passwords or a way to make some easy money, these are referred to as ‘Mass Campaigns’. Alternatively, they might be after something more specific, such as the theft of sensitive data. These targeted campaigns, known as ‘Spear Phishing’, are when an attacker may use employee information to make their messages even more realistic and persuasive.

WHY USE PHISHING SIMULATIONS?

  • 90% of malware, including ransomware, is delivered by phishing attacks.
  • Training your staff to recognise them and take appropriate action is one of the most important things you can do to keep your organisation secure. Your users cannot compensate for cyber security weaknesses elsewhere. Responding to emails and clicking on links is a huge part of the modern workplace, so it’s unrealistic to expect users to remain vigilant all the time.
  • Spotting phishing emails is hard, and spear phishing is even harder to detect. Even experts from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) struggle. This is your opportunity to test users with real-time, realistic phishing emails. Will they spot something ‘phishy’ going on?
