Phishing was the number one cybersecurity concern in 2020.
What is a phishing test?
Phishing is the practice of sending fraudulent emails, texts, voice etc. that mimic the look of being sent from a reputable company or contact. These communications are to encourage an individual to reveal personal information such as passwords or credit card numbers.
*Did you know that 91% of successful data breaches started with a spear-phishing attack? It was reported that phishing attacks increased exponentially in 2020 and 2021 as the number of employees transitioned from the office to work-from-home.
A phishing test is used to create a mock phishing email and / or webpage that is sent to employees. This test boosts employee cybersecurity awareness of phishing in a meaningful, controlled environment.
