Social engineering tests (phishing campaigns)

Check the organization’s resilience to phishing attacks

A phishing attack can expose an organization to data theft, leakage of business secrets, reputational damage, loss of trust, financial losses, and many other painful consequences.

To assess resilience to this type of threat, we conduct controlled attacks on the organization.

Their main objectives are:

  • Assessing the level of awareness and risk associated with phishing
  • Examining employees’ reactions to phishing attempts (e.g., reporting such attempts and adhering to security procedures)
  • Verifying the effectiveness of security measures (e.g., anti-spam filters)
  • Preventing potential incidents

As part of such a test, we create the infrastructure necessary to conduct the attack. This includes, among other things, a domain and a fake website used to collect data. We prepare special phishing email messages, which we send to an agreed-upon group of recipients within a specified timeframe.

Benefits of social engineering tests

Increasing security awareness

Social engineering tests allow us to identify whether employees are aware of the threats associated with phishing and other social engineering attacks.

Preventing phishing attacks

Controlled phishing campaigns help identify areas where employees are more susceptible to attacks. This knowledge serves to minimize risk — it enables the implementation of more effective security measures, the adjustment of policies, and procedures.

Improving incident response procedures

Conducting a phishing campaign allows us to see how quickly and effectively the organization responds to potential threats. It allows for an assessment of whether existing response procedures are sufficient or require improvement.
