What is Phishing?

Phishing is one of the oldest ‘hacking’ methods used by cyber criminals. Phishing works well because it tricks people into divulging sensitive information that can compromise their security. Moreover, successful phishing attacks deliver an enormous return on investment, which has motivated criminals to create increasingly sophisticated and creative phishing ‘lures’.

What is a simulated phishing attack?

A simulated phishing attack aims to establish whether your employees are vulnerable to phishing emails, so you can take immediate action to improve your cyber security. This service gives you an independent assessment of employee susceptibility to phishing attacks and provides a benchmark for your security awareness campaigns.

After completing the simulation, the results of the test can be shared with employees. As part of this feedback, IT Governance has developed an
e-learning module to help your staff understand how phishing attacks work, the tactics that cyber criminals employ to lure inattentive users, and how to spot and avoid a phishing campaign.
