Phishing Simulations for business

Posted in Blogs on 13/01/21

Phishing attacks have been around for decades but companies are still falling victim to them and suffering the consequences. This is why Crusade Computer Solutions offer Phishing Simulations to all our clients, which identifies whether employees would fall for a real phishing scam and potentially destroy the business.

What is a phishing simulation?

Cybercriminals disguise themselves as trustworthy organisations or reputable people through email communications. Once they have garnered the trust of the user who might click on a link included in the email, the cybercriminal can obtain the sensitive information they desire such as credit card details and login credentials. Phishing emails are also used to distribute malware and spyware through links or attachments that can perform other malicious tasks. Phishing simulations are a tried and tested way of training your employees to identify and report even the most convincing social-engineering attacks.

Why is phishing simulation important?

As businesses continue to deploy anti-phishing strategies and educate their users about cyber-security, cybercriminals continue to improve phishing attacks and develop new scams. These evolving and sophisticated attack techniques put your business at risk for data loss, financial fraud, and embarrassing exposure. Phishing simulation protects your business by helping to stop the potentially devastating attacks that can slip through security gateways. Even with the best Cyber Security plan in the world, it only takes a single user to open the wrong email and it’s all been for nothing.

Crusade Computer Solutions helps your business fight phishing and other social engineering attacks by providing continuous education on the latest phishing techniques.
