How Phishing Simulation Works
Phishing attacks can be one of the most dangerous cyber threats facing any organizations. With ever increasing numbers and sophistication of attacks, the danger is also increasing every day. Even the most sophisticated cyber security software and hardware isn’t able to identify and block all phishing attacks, preventing them from reaching your employees. Aspire phishing simulation tool processes user-reported phishing and other suspicious emails by grouping and categorizing emails based on rules, tags, and actions.
Employee cyber security awareness training is a key requirement for an effective information security protection. Aspire developed an information security awareness curriculum that is easy-to-understand and does not affect with employee’s daily activities. Through our phishing simulation software and our security awareness training, your organizations will have an easy-to-use platform for employees.
Phishing Simulations, Testing & Training
With Aspire’s Managed Phishing Services, our team of experts will go to work creating and executing phishing simulation tests, along with cyber security awareness training. Educate your workforce with our phishing templates and education tools or build your own templates to prepare employees for the threats you face in your organization. Some employees may require more personalized attack methods, such as making use of their job title or department.
As technology advances, cybercriminals are adapting their phishing attacks to make malicious messages harder for machines and humans to identify. Traditional phishing emails target hundreds or even thousands of recipients at a time. They’re designed to trick users into clicking on a URL to a webpage where they’re asked to enter personal information. Spear phishing emails are targeted and personal. The attacker impersonates a trustworthy source, pretending to know their victim, so that unsuspecting users will trust them when they ask for sensitive information. Both types of attack have key indicators that users can look out for to determine whether an email is genuine or fraudulent.
Assess Vulnerability & Train Employees
As the campaign runs, our phishing service tracks each and every phishing message so you can quickly identify vulnerable users and immediately:
- Alert them to their mistake and the potential danger
- Redirect at-risk users to a targeted training session
- Show how they could have identified the phishing attack
For those organizations that prefer not to let employees know they were phished, that is an option too.
Launch Phishing Campaigns and Training to Those Employees Who Need it the Most
It’s time to build your campaign. Give the campaign a name and description, schedule start and stop dates, select your email message and landing page templates, and then choose your target group(s).
It is that fast and easy. Once you start phishing program, campaign execution is automatic and you can instantly see the results on the phishing dashboard. You can start and stop campaigns at any time.
Simulated phishing campaigns reinforce employee training, and help you understand your own risk and improve workforce resiliency—these can take many forms, such as mass phishing, spear phishing, and whaling.
Phishing simulation should be done regularly and often.Aspire phishing simulation service allows you to develop targeted phishing campaigns, schedule and test repeatedly. Its powerful Dashboard enables you quickly track how your campaigns are doing and assess whether you are reducing your organizational risk by building user resistance.
Organizational inertia is the tendency for an organization as a whole to resist change and want to maintain the status quo. Companies that suffer from inertia become inflexible and can’t adapt to environmental or internal demands for change. Some of the signs that organizational inertia is in play are through internal power struggles, poor decision-making processes and bureaucratic organizational structures.
Organizational cultures and reward systems can foster resistance or acceptance of change. A culture that promotes high levels of trust and cooperation lays the foundation for employees and their acceptance and instigation of change. If employees are punished for honest mistakes, if new ideas aren’t rewarded, and managers aren’t prepared for daily issues with proper training, then that organization is ripe for change resistance.
