“Together with the Guardey team, we came up with an email centered around a Christmas gift voucher that we send out every year. I was curious about how our employees would react. It turns out that quite a few employees clicked the phishing link and even entered personal data. This made it clear that we had to start training security awareness.”View Case Study
“After receiving a lot of phishing emails, we decided to do a phishing test last year to test the cyber awareness of our employees. During this test, we sent fake emails to see how many would click a possibly harmful link. The result? 29.4% did, which was higher than expected. After using Guardey for only a few weeks the scores had improved by 84%.”View Case Study
Phishing is a generic cyber attack casting a wide net with generic messages, while spear phishing is a targeted and sophisticated approach. Spear phishing tailors messages to specific individuals or organizations, using personalized information and social engineering. This makes spear phishing much more convincing and likely to succeed.
Spear phishing is a phishing method where phishers research their target carefully. They use the information they have gathered and social engineering techniques to then get the target to click on a malicious link. And since templated phishing simulations don’t use these techniques, they’re simply not preparing your employees for the real cyber risks that they face. At best, they give both the security officer and the employees a false sense of security.
Absolutely. While spear phishing simulations test your team’s phishing awareness, the right security awareness training helps your team to recognize phishing and take the right actions when confronted with it.
Phishing is the number one cyber threat for all organizations. Many employees tend to overestimate their ability to recognize phishing, which makes them vulnerable to targeted attacks.
