Why do I need a continuous training program?
We recommend training employees at least once a year with core security awareness training, and then reinforcing training with monthly awareness campaigns and quarterly phishing campaigns. Continuous programs like this are not exhaustive but keep security awareness front of mind for your organisation.
What is phishing simulation?
Phishing simulation campaigns send realistic phishing emails to employees in order to gauge their awareness of attacks and what to do with phishing emails when they receive them. Phishing simulation is typically used in coordination with phishing training that educates employees about how these attacks work and how to avoid them.
Why use phishing campaigns?
An effective phishing simulation program can help to significantly improve employee's awareness of phishing threats and increase the likelihood that they will respond correctly when they encounter a suspicious email. This can help you address the kinds of human error that are involved in more than 90% of security breaches.
How does GoldPhish manage phishing campaigns?
In consultation with our Partners or Clients we will choose a phishing email template to use. We will then build and schedule the phishing campaign to launch against designated targets within the organisation. After testing and approval from the client, GoldPhish will launch the phishing campaign. On completion of the campaign the Client will receive a detailed campaign report.
Are phishing email templates customisable?
Yes. GoldPhish will work with you to tailor the templates to match the kind of phishing attacks employees are likely to receive.
How does the phishing campaign process work?
GoldPhish will provide the client IT Team with IP whitelisting gudelines to ensure the phishing emails reach their targets. We then decide on a template to use, which employees / departments to target, and the duration of the campaign. The client will then receive a test email to check it is arriving correctly and ensure you are happy with the template. After campaign approval GoldPhish takes care of the rest.
