Understand susceptibility to phishing & raise awareness
Do you know how your organization will respond to phishing attacks?
PHaaS (Phishing as a Service) allows organizations to determine a baseline for susceptibility to phishing attacks by using simulated real-world scenarios on users. Organizations are able to track vulnerability to phishing attacks by employee, department and region in a safe and controlled environment.
While there are many technical security solutions designed to stop phishing attacks, there is no practical way to prevent an employee from clicking links, filling out forms, or unintentionally offering information that could put your organization at risk. The best defense against these targeted and often sophisticated attacks is to educate employees and ensure they understand the value of the information they possess. Confidential data and company trade secrets should remain private, but due to the nature of advanced phishing techniques, the probability of a wide spread data breach at the hands of sophisticated phishing attempts is extremely high.
Social-Engineer helps organizations develop a continuous assessment and training process to successfully combat susceptibility to phishing attacks.
Social-Engineer provides organizations with a constant repeatable process for addressing security challenges through assessment, awareness and education. Employees who understand the threats posed by phishing attacks are less likely to click malicious links, and more likely to report suspicious activity. Organizations that implement PHaaS programs dramatically reduce malware infection rates, laptop re-imaging, drive-by downloads, and adware while protecting an organization’s most critical assets and trade secrets.
