Phishing simulation tests have been proven to double employee awareness vs running cyber awareness training alone, but what makes for an effective phishing test?
Measuring the effectiveness and the success of a phishing test at your workplace can quite literally be the difference of being a victim of cyber crime or not.
Phishing providers create mock phishing emails and webpages that are then sent to employees. However, reports of successful phishing attacks show that cyber attackers are going to new lengths to attempt to trick staff. MFG work closely with their clients to get to know their business and tailor phishing campaigns around real-life scenarios and not just generic, randomly generated emails.
These emails aren’t designed to purposefully trick staff. We believe these more realistic fake attacks help employees understand and identify the different forms of phishing attack and deal with them in a meaningful, controlled environment.
