As one of the most popular – and profitable – forms of cybercrime, phishing places both your employees and business at risk.

Security breaches originating with email scams range from identity theft to capturing usernames and passwords to access sensitive information. As phishing strategies become more sophisticated, fake messages are harder to spot, even by the not-so-gullible. Ongoing, proactive employee education is therefore your strongest defence against this cybersecurity threat.

PhishNet is a managed security service that allows you to conduct ongoing campaigns to educate users about the latest phishing tactics, and identify those who are at risk and need additional training.

Proactively protect your business

Practical employee education help reduces security risk

Safeguard your business from the inside out

Numerous research studies by the likes of IBM, Gartner and others repeat the warning that an organisation’s employees are the weak link in the cybersecurity fence. From the basement to the boardroom, human negligence, gullibility, and indifferent attitudes combined with lack of training on the part of employers, and even inadequate experience on the security team, are a lethal combination. And that’s assuming a happy workforce with no malicious or criminal intent.

Providing employees with an ICT procedure document during induction simply does not suffice when it comes to cybercrime awareness training. Limiting device usage and access to so-called risky sites is not practical or desirable either. And introducing punitive consequences in the event of accidental or careless system compromise will only make employees reluctant to report such incidences.

Our PhishNet solution is a managed service that allows security teams to launch sophisticated, repeatable phishing campaigns as part of internal cybersecurity education efforts.

This is your first, and vital, step in protecting your business from unforeseen threats that might emanate from inside the organisation by proactively safeguarding users and identifying at-risk users.

 

Empower your employees with knowledge

The old saying ‘knowledge is power’ rings very true when it comes to protecting your employees from phishing scams. Because we tend to learn better from experience than theory, the PhishNet approach can be a lot more powerful than simply reminding employees about company policies or sending emails that explain the concepts of the latest phishing techniques.

Informed, alert employees are less likely to be deceived by email scams and more likely to respond appropriately to suspected phishing attempts. PhishNet helps your employees become the best weapon your business has against this kind of threat.

Simple and effective breach detection

Run your own phishing campaigns to improve online security

Cybersecurity is a mere filled-in form away

With PhishNet, protecting your business against hackers and cyber criminals has never been easier. Simply fill out a preinstall form and we are good to go. Phishing emails are delivered to specific contact lists which puts you firmly in control of your campaigns. PhishNet’s advanced data collection helps you establish which users clicked the phishing link, which users submitted credentials and even which users are running vulnerable software and outdated browsers.

Evolve your phishing protection efforts

Phishing emails are no longer the amateurish efforts they used to be.

It’s now much easier to be taken in by a “genuine fake” that, at first glance, seems to be from a friend, the bank, or even a company claiming to offer protection against online security attacks. It’s almost second nature to click on links in emails, and that’s all it takes to be directed to the phishing site. We’re even more likely to follow a link to a fake website when we’re viewing emails on mobile devices, as the smaller screens make it harder to distinguish legitimate addresses.

PhishNet is a powerful way to educate employees about how to prevent phishing as it gives them accurate examples of the latest social engineering methods used in email scams.

 

You give us a list of contacts and we send a phishing message to those contacts. The purpose of these PhishNet campaigns is to demonstrate what a phishing lure looks like, how it works, and how people could be tricked into clicking on unsafe links or giving away personal information.

A flexible solution that is easy to manage

Tailored campaigns to match your business

Leave the campaigns to us

Phishing can be a complicated part of any organisation’s security measures. You need to understand how to launch security campaigns and have resources available to monitor them in order to get the results you need. With PhishNet, you don’t have to worry about carrying the management burden of your security campaigns. We launch and monitor PhishNet campaigns on your behalf so you can educate and protect users – and your business – from phishing attempts and the ever-evolving threat of social engineering.

Intelligent reporting to inform your decisions

Running PhishNet campaigns can only be effective in the long run if you gather and analyse data to understand where your security risks lie.

We track user responses and give you reports and data that will help you take a targeted approach to employee education. You’ll be able to see who clicked on the link and who supplied information such as their personal or credit card details. You can identify users who are at risk because of vulnerable software or outdated browsers, and those who need further education and training on cybersecurity.

 

Decide how many campaigns you need

Every business has unique security needs. Maybe you have specific, high-volume periods during the year where email security becomes more important, or you run marketing and communication campaigns at specific times to help promote strategic messages. Whatever the situation, PhishNet can cater for your requirements. You can run as many campaigns as you need to in order to raise awareness about online security threats. Campaigns are quick and easy to set up, and costs are based on the number of users on the contacts list.

Phish your users, before someone else does!
