An Email Phishing Assessment involves an assessment of the staff members susceptibility to an email campaign designed to coerce employees into following provided links, enter credentials or open attached documents.
96% of breaches are attributed to email based phishing attacks.
These methods of attack are designed to provide an adversary with an initial foothold into the company network either via gathered credentials or other techniques resulting in a connection to the employee’s workstation.
Only 17% of phishing campaigns were reported.
In a world where practice makes perfect simulating phishing attacks not only helps teach your staff to spot phishing emails, it helps your staff understand and refine the internal procedure for reporting and dealing with phishing.
The time from the email landing in the inbox to a foothold being gained is a matter of minutes meaning initial detection and response needs to happen as fast as possible.
